Her married name was Corbett. 
At Mary Carroll's marriage, the witnesses were John Kennedy and Ellen Corbett, the sister of Mary's husband, John Corbett. It is logical to assume that Mary Carroll and John Kennedy had a family relationship. There is one such family relationship - Rosannah Carroll, b. ca, 1797, had, as her first husband, John Carroll. More research is needed.2
