Lingle Rorabaugh Ballew Drumright Miscellany

Hello! My name is James (Jim) Hamilton Carroll. I live in Goodlettsville, Tennessee (near Nashville), but I'm originally from Drumright, Oklahoma. My purpose for this site is to present much of the information that I have gathered over the last number of years with the hope that it will be of benefit to some far or near relative who has similar interests.

The surnames Carroll, Lingle, Rorabaugh, and Ballew are those of my parents and grandparents, and these form the basic index of this site.  However, I have just recently been able to extend the Felkins line (follow Lingle) and the Tippy line (follow Ballew) back a number of generations.

If you would like to correspond, please feel free to do so. I endeavor to check my e-mail often. I work full-time for a major tire company in Nashville, Tennessee and keep a fairly busy schedule; however, genealogy is of great interest to me. I'm honored to have you drop by.


I have submitted my genealogy to the WorldConnect Project; if you have common ancestors with me in this database, please leave Post'em notes to make any corrections or additions.
