Tombstone Tuesday: Jane Barr Carroll, 1822-1896

Jane Barr Carroll is my great-great-great-grandmother. She was born in 1822 in Pennsylvania. By the 1850 census she was married to Louis Huffman Carroll and living in West Elizabeth, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Daughter Margaret Melzina, my great-great-grandmother, was born in 1846.

On the 1860 and 1870 censuses, the family is living in Carroll, Washington County, Pennsylvania. Son Harvey Louis was born in 1858. In 1870, Margaret and her husband Joseph William Wolfe and their daughter Emma are living with them, as well as a 12-year-old girl named Olive Pancost--not sure how or if she is related.

In 1880, Jane and her husband and son lived in Monongahela in Washington County, Pennsylvania, with daughter Margaret Carroll Wolfe and her growing family next door.

Jane died on November 19, 1896, in Monongahela, and is buried next to her husband in the Monongahela Cemetery in the same plot as Joseph and Margaret Carroll Wolfe and their infant daughter Myrtle Jenny Wolfe.
