    Carroll Family Motto: In fide et in bello forte

    Margaret had a sister named Mary Ann who was married to John Cock, Jr on 15 Feb 1844 in Carroll County. They had an uncle named John Carroll, of Irish descent, who was a merchant, farmer and repressentative in the legislature.

    On the marriage bond for Margaret and William R. Bobbitt, the word "Parents" is scratched out after Margaret's name and in its place is written "Orphaned". Records held by the Genealogy Club of Carroll County, VA show that Margaret had an uncle named John Carroll and an aunt named Margaret Carroll. Both aunt and uncle were Irish immigrants.

    From 1850 Census: Annotated Carroll County, Virginia by John P. Alderman
    John (Carroll, Margaret's Uncle) was an Irishman who came here (Carroll County) from Lynchburg in the 1830's and bought a large farm on Big Reed. He later moved his holdings to Fairview, east of Hillsville. He was a slaveholder, one of the wealthier men in the county. He ran for the legislature in 1841 and defeated John Blair in a bitter contest. He was responsible for the legislation dividing old Grayson and creating a new Carroll County in 1842. He died in 1860 and by his will freed his slaves. His wife (other sources say he never married and this was his sister) had predeceased him; they had no children, only nieces and nephews.
