The earliest mention of Abraham Carroll we have found is recorded the 5th of Dec 1830 where he and his wife Sarah were given (5.12 1/2) a grand niece's share in the probated estate of Nicholas Zorn in Barnwell County, SC.
Abraham Carroll's name on the 1840 census for Barnwell County, SC.
He is seen with the following in his household:
Home in 1840 (City, County, State):Barnwell, South Carolina Free White Persons - Males - Under 5:1 Free White Persons - Males - 5 thru 9:1 Free White Persons - Males - 10 thru 14:1 Free White Persons - Males - 30 thru 39:1 Free White Persons - Females - Under 5:1 Free White Persons - Females - 20 thru 29:1 Persons Employed in Agriculture:2 No. White Persons over 20 Who Cannot Read and Write:2 Free White Persons - Under 20:4 Free White Persons - 20 thru 49:2 Total Free White Persons:6 Total All Persons - Free White, Free Colored, Slaves:6
Abraham Carroll is shown on the 1840 census living next to his brother, Burton Carroll. The 1840 census for Abraham Carroll and Burton Carroll and Jacob Carroll's 1820 census all appear to be in a similar location if not the same location for these two groups (see Location by Neighbors page).
I have not been able to locate Abraham Carroll on the 1850 census. He does appear on the 1850 U.S. Federal Census Non-Population Schedules for Agriculture in Barnwell County, SC. This document shows Abraham Carroll owned land that he used as Agricultural Land on Windy Hill Creek. We know the location is on Windy Hill Creek based on his neighbors and their known locations.
Name:Abraham Caroll Location:Barnwell, South Carolina, USA Enumeration Date:9 Aug 1860 Schedule Type:Agriculture OS Page:19 Line Number:29
He is seen near the following neighbors:
Obadiah Nevils (Abraham's sister Elizabeth Carroll married Obadiah Nevils. Per death notice he was killed between Elko and Blackville)
Newport Head (Granted "Windy Hill Plantation", from Henry Hartzog the 12th of January 1835. Lived at Windy Hill Plantation)
Lewis Odom (Abraham's cousin son of Mary Carroll Odom and Abraham Odom. Lived on Windy Hill Creek)
Mary Odom (Abraham's Aunt Mary Carroll daughter of Thomas Carroll, Sr married Abraham Odom. Lived on Windy Hill Creek)
Thomas Odom (Abraham's cousin son of Mary Carroll Odom and Abraham Odom. Lived on Windy Hill Creek)
This is an important piece of the puzzle. This Agriculture schedule shows Abraham Carroll owned property he used for Agriculture on Windy Hill Creek. On Jacob Carroll's 1800 census we find him in the same close location to Thomas Carroll, Sr as Abraham is shown to Mary Odom on this census. Abraham Odom owned the land next to Windy Hill Plantation. On the list above, the location of Windy Hill Plantation is shown as the residence as Newport Head.
We know Abraham Carroll shows up in apparently the same location on his 1840 census as Jacob Carroll appeared on his 1820 census. We also know that Abraham Carroll shows up in apprarently the same location on his 1850 Agriculture Schedule as Jacob Carroll appeared on his 1800 census on Windy Hill Creek (just down from his Father Thomas Carroll, Sr).
We next see Abraham Carroll mentioned as owning land on Toby's Creek in 1853. William Carroll and Benjamin Carroll mentioned in this document is Abraham's nephews.

She with that Allen Shipes late of Barnwell District de’cd seized of a certain tract or tracts of land on or near the head of Cain Piece Waters of Toby’s Creek the one Tract containing one hundred and one acres the other sixty eight acres adjoining each other bounded on the lands of James Still, Alex Templeton (hard to read), Benjamin Carroll (brother to the William mentioned in the petition), William Gilliam, and Abram Carroll (uncle of William and Benjamin) .

Abraham Carroll shows up on the 1860 census for Barnwell County, SC.
He is shown with the following in his household:
Age:57 Birth Year:abt 1803 Gender:Male Birth Place:South Carolina Home in 1860:Barnwell, South Carolina Post Office:Blackville Family Number:524 Value of Real Estate:View image Household Members: NameAge Abraha Caroll57 Sarah Caroll44 Henry Caroll17 Edward Caroll14 William Caroll12 Joseph Caroll10 Alletha Caroll9 Elisabeth Caroll7 George Caroll6 David Caroll2
On Abraham Carroll’s 1860 census it lists a Henry Carroll b. 1843. Henry Carroll must have died before Abraham wrote his will and without having children and a wife. Abraham mentions even his predeceased children in his will and Henry is not mentioned.
The other unknown child mentioned on the 1860 census was Alletha Carroll. Alletha’s dates match Martha (Mattie) Carroll. Martha (Mattie) is not listed on this census. It appears that Alletha is Martha (Mattie) Carroll.
Abraham Carroll appears in the probated estate records of Henry W. Kirkland from 23 July 1863. Abraham is shown as owing his estate $7.75, it appears the Kirklands owned a store near Blackville, SC.
Abraham Carroll died before the 5th Oct 1868. His son, Edward Carroll, on the 5 Oct 1868 sent a letter to the Ordinary requesting his letters of administration to settle his father's estate. The children of Abraham Carroll and Sarah Hartzog Carroll are clearly named by their father in his will. Even his pre-deceased children with heirs of their own are mentioned in Abraham's will.
