Joshua Lee land locations match known NC Carroll and SC Carroll locations: Joshua Lee purchased a tract of land in Duplin County, NC from James Kenan in 1772 and sold to King Vann on the 18 Feb 1780 for 2000 pounds. A portion of this tract of land was bought by Jesse Carroll, Sr in 1784. Written on the 12 Feb 1780 for Joshua Lee for 100 acres on the east side of the Six Runs and was recorded 28 Sept 1785. (John Carroll another Carroll DNA match owned land on Six Runs)
"Two other deeds seem most certainly to involve Jesse the soldier. On 11 Apr 1784, King Vann deeded to Jesse Carroll, both of Duplin County, 75 acres for 25 pounds. The deed covered land that had been part of a tract granted to Joseph Williams and part of a tract granted to Joshua Lee described as on the East side of Six Runs and lying in the fork of Stewart’s Creek.” From research on Jesse Carroll by Oakey Mertz: http://www.mertzgenealogy.com/reunion/Family_Tree/ps02/ps02_379.htm

It also appears the NC Carroll group remove the same part of Barbour, AL as the SC Carroll group mentioned on this website. In a email from Keith Wade from 9/20/2015 he stated that:
" I actually have two different Carroll lines in my family. They are not connected down here. Meaning they never crossed married here. In fact the other line is pretty much non existing here anymore. That line comes from Duplin, NC through a John Carroll born about 1740 who had a son John C. Carroll who had a son named Mason who left NC and settled in Thomasville GA. He had a son named Isham who came to Barbour. He is another Grandfather of mine on a different line.
My understanding is that there are two main Carroll Brothers that came to the USA at the same time to NC and that is where most of the Carroll's come through. That John is supposed to be one of those brothers."
