THE CARROLL FAMILY

The earliest known Carroll ancestors are the Timothy and Agness (Hickenbotham) Carroll, so that is where this family history begins. Timothy Carroll is believed to have been born around 1765 according to the 1830 census of Bedford County, TN. The 1836 poll tax records in Coffee County, TN show him as Timothy Henry Carroll. He is thought to have been born somewhere in Virginia since he is known to have been in Washington County, VA, as a young man.

Washington County, VA, was formed in 1776/7 from part of Fincastle which was formed in 1772 and discontinued in 1777, county seat Abingdon. Fincastle was part of Botetourt County which was formed in 1769 from part of Augusta County. Augusta County was formed in 1738 from part of Orange County, etc.

Nothing is known of Timothy's parents or his early life, however it is believed he had a brother named James Carroll who migrated to Tennessee with him around 1810. Both are names in 1811 newspaper articles in Bedford County, TN. Timothy likely had other brothers and sisters, however they have not been identified.

Information on Agness "Aggy" Hickenbotham or Hickenbottom is almost nonexistent. According to Mr. Earl Higginbotham of Bruceville, TX, who has done extensive research on the Higginbotham-Hickenbottam-Hickembottom lines and other spellings, believes Aggy's ancestors arrived in Washington County in the vicinity of Damascus around 1785 from Monroe County, VA (now in West Virginia). They lived there only 15 to 20 years before moving to Bedford, Bledsoe and Rutherford Counties, TN, and Alabama.

The first recorded evidence of Timothy Carroll in Washington County, VA, is when he was called to serve in the Washington County Detachment of the Virginia State Militia on September 29, 1792. He had to serve one month and five days at $5.50 per month or $6.42 total. A detachment of 65 men was ordered into service by the Governor of Virginia under the command of Captain Andrew Lewis and Lieutenant Matthew Willoughby. These facts are taken from "Calendar of Virginia State Papers and Other Manuscripts from August 11, 1792--December 3, 1793, Volume VI" arranged and edited by Sherwin McRae in 1886, page 686, preserved in the state capitol at Richmond. Timothy would have been around 17 years old at the time.

Timothy was still in Washington County almost four years later when he married on June 9, 1796, Agness Hickenbottom. Their marriage is recorded in Marriage Register No. 1, Page 63. Timothy is believed to have been about 21 and Agness about 18 (although the 1830 census shows she may have been only 16). It is interesting to note that the ceremony was performed by Rev. Charles Cummings, a noted earlyday Presbyterian Minister who also several other Hickenbottom marriages, possibly brothers and sisters of Agness.

Timothy Carroll, born ca. 1775, VA, died February 1837, Coffee County, TN, probably buried in Carroll Cemetery, Mount Vernon, Coffee County, TN, married 9 June 1796, Washington County, VA, Agness Hickenbottom or Hickenbotham, born ca. 1778, VA, died ca. 1845, Coffee County, TN. Nothing is known of the early married life of TIMOTHY and AGGY in Washington County, VA, however based heavily on the 1830 census of Bedford County, TN, they had the following children:

1. Felix Carroll, CA1, born 3 August 1797, Washington County, VA.

2. John Milton Carroll, CA2, born ca. 1799, Washington County, VA.

3. William B. Carroll, CA3, born ca. 1800, Washington County, VA.

4. Daughter Carroll, born 1802-05, (possibly Rebecca Carroll).

5. Daughter Carroll, born 1810-15, Manchester, Coffee, TN.

6. Aaron Carroll, CA6, born 1815-20, Manchester, Coffee, TN.

7. Son Carroll, born 1820-25 (possibly Joseph Carroll).

8. Daughter Carroll, born 1820-25, Manchester, Coffee, TN.

9. Son Carroll, born 1825-30, Manchester, Coffee, TN.

Timothy and Agness are believed to have remained in Virginia, likely Washington County, for several years after their marriage. According to later census reports, the first three of their children are known to have been born in Virginia. It is probable that their fourth child was also born there before they migrated southwestward to Bedford County, TN, around 1810. Their destination was likely what is now Coffee County, TN, but then Bedford County before Coffee County was formed in 1836. Timothy has been identified as one of the earliest settlers of Coffee County. The first settlers were Daniel, John and Neely Patton who came around 1800 with others following in 1809. It is believed that Timothy came around that time and "settled in the neighborhood of Manchester and the Sixth District". It is possible that some of TIMOTHY's relatives came with him or maybe preceeded him him to the area. A James Carroll and Joseph Higginbotham are shown on the 1820 census of Bedford County. It is likely that James Carroll was a brother and Joseph Higginbotham was some of his wife's relatives. Timothy did not appear on the 1820 Bedford County census and, in fact, has only been found on the 1830 Bedford County census.

Tennessee was organized as a territory in 1790 following the migration of settlers from Virginia and the Carolinas. It first consisted of several counties along the Virginia-North Carolina border with most middle and western Tennessee still designated as Indian Lands. It became the sixteenth state on June 1, 1796. By 1820 westward expansion into the Indian Lands included two-thirds of the state with Coffee County being part of Bedford, Franklin and Warren Counties. On January 8, 1836, the Tennessee General Assembly passed an act establishing Coffee County out of Bedford, Franklin and Warren Counties. As it now exists, Coffee County is located in Middle Tennessee about fifty miles southeast of Nashville. Manchester is the county seat.

The fact that Timothy Carroll is not named on the 1820 census of Tennessee is not surprising because about half of the census records were lost and/or incomplete. In 1820 "the Carroll Meetinghouse" was built near Normandy and was used as a church and school. This is believed to have been named after Timothy Carroll because in 1820 he established the first known school in what is now Coffee County on "Cat Creek, a small stream in the Sixth District, and taught school several months of the year up to about 1823." Evidently, better and more permanent schools were established and there was no further need for this primitive school. Being one of the early settlers in the area, Timothy was likely a farmer in addition to his teaching school.
