Military Service: Marched with Gen. Sherman to the sea. Company D- a substitute for William Patterson Marietta, GA 7 Nov. 1864, June 1865 listed as Company Cook. Private in Capt. Henderson's CO. Departmental Corps of the Monongahila PA Vols. Enrolled 10 July 1863, mustered in 17 Aug. 1863, mustered out 22 July 1864.

Grandpa (William Edward Perkins) said they were very poor and lived a lot on sweet potatoes. Harriet was a sickly person all her life.

Simon Smith Carroll sold his farms in Washington Co. PA, one in East Finley Twp. to Josiah Carroll on Oct. 26, 1867 Bk. 4 L. P. 141. The other farm was in West Finley Twp was sold to Joseph Montgomery, March 17, 1869 Bk 4.0 P 117. His name crops up in other dealings with the family. Simon S. Carroll purchased a farm in Mahaska Co. IA Feb. 18, 1869 Book 5, P 404.

Ruth Burns passed this information on: The records are from the family Bible. Grandfather Simon Carroll was a Union Soldier. He was wounded in the hip in Atlanta, GA., with Shermans's "March to the Sea". He was a farmer and cabinet maker. They ilved and all their children were born in Northern VA.(Washington Co. PA was contested as VA for many). After the Civil War, he broke with the Carrolls in VA, because he stood for the Union. Thats why he took his family and moved to Carroll Co. IA. in 1867. He never returned to VA. I have been told the Carrolls were Catholic in Ireland. Some of them married Protestants. like my grandmother Mary Jane Gunn of VA, a Scotch Presbyterian. So they got off the Catholic tree right there.
