Elizabeth Carroll Williams is my maternal grandmother and last lived in Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County, New York, USA. She was born on Septemaber 22, 1876 in Elphin, Roscommon, Ireland and came to the USA (probably Boston) when she was about twenty or a teen. Her father was Mark Carroll and her mother was Bridget Kelly Carroll. She had several brothers and sisters John, Helen, Margaret, Mark, James, Bernard, Bridget, Matthew, Patrick and James. Many of them came to the USA but I think Patrick, Bridget, Matthew and maybe Bernard may have stayed in Ireland. If you are a descendent or know anything about this family and there are any still living in Roscommon, please contact me. I would love to learn more about them. Thank you.

Additional Information
Date of Birth 22nd Sep 1876
Date of Death 28th Sep 1948


  • I was educated in Elphin , left some time ago , wasn’t aware of any Carroll family in that region , However I asked my sister about this surname, & sure enough she knows a Mary , now a Brady . If you look up Brady undertakers Main Street Elphin , you will find Cathal’s business & Mary is his wife . We don’t know of other Carroll’s in that area , although Mary would be more knowledgeable. Good Luck to you . Una.
