To his other daughter, Mary Carroll, who was the executor of his will half of his personal property to be shared with Thomas Jr.
Windy Hill Plantation is released from indenture to the Carroll family in 18 Oct 1803. Jacob Carroll writes the contract to sell his half of Windy Hill Plantation for 9 pounds 6 shillings and four pence for 42 acres and his “half of land which my father of land gave me by will” to Mary Carroll Odom (his sister) in 13 September 1803 but the sale is not recorded until 18 Oct 1813. It stated Jacob was a “planter” in the sale of land to his sister Mary Carroll Odom. Jacob already had his own land before his father died. He is seen as head of household on the 1800 census just down from Thomas Carroll Sr. Mary Carroll Odom eventually sells her share back to Thomas Carroll, Jr.
