Shortly after these had established themselves on farms, James Carroll came from Newfoundland with his brother-in-law, John Kennedy. Carroll was in many respects a remarkable man.

His son John enjoyed the distinction of being the first child born on the "New Road". Besides John, the other children were: James, William, Mrs. Daniel Lane, and Mrs. Florence Donovan [Johanna Carroll]."
