About William Hale Doolittle-Carroll

GEDCOM Note

Mary Etta Dill or Etta, died soon after my grandparents got married and left a family Bible where it stated her relation to Charles Carroll of Carrolton according to my dad.

He knew the family genealogy very well as his middle name Hale is from a 1600's ancestor. The name change to Carroll was based on a descent or relation to Charles Carroll of Carrollton. His wife Maime through her Morris ancestors may have this connection.

Doolittle to Carroll name change was confirmed yet again with my grandmother and her mother receiving an invite to a family reunion involving the Doolittle's and Sackett's. My grandmother was the wife of my grandfather James Carroll, who is the first cousin once removed of Clyde Doolittle who married Emma Sackett.

Possibly grew up between 1910 and 1920 in Edgerton, WI after father died. This is what my dad told me. Laura Tuyls, a granddaughter of Oliver, told me that William Carroll went by his middle name of Hale and was a very funny guy.

Another public member tree has William Hale Doolittle married to Mamie Tuyls. This means that William, not Edna changed the name to Carroll after he was married. Edna's tombstone shows the name Doolittle. The reason is unknown, but may have been inspired by Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a misapplied version of Churchill, or he thought the name sounded to much like "Do little". These are based on family stories and who knows what the truth is. Another modern day Churchill did marry a descendant of Charles, although this was way after the name change.
