Searching for Carothers connection: William Robert Ball (1917 CO -2001 TX), son of Annie Carothers Ball (17 May 1896 TN – 18 Dec 1974 TX), daughter of Thomas Kennedy Carothers (10 Mar 1856 TN – 9 August 1906 OK) and Tommie English Carothers ( 9 Sept 1858 TN – 11 Nov 1922 OK) , son of Hugh C. Carothers (b 1809 TN – d, probably after 1900) and Jane Wells Carothers (b 1815 VA – d unkn TN?). To this point, verifiable sources. However, many on-line researchers have Hugh C. as the son of Hugh Carothers (1766-1832) and Martha Irvin Carothers (married 1796), who is the son of Robert B. Carothers (1750-1812) and Margaret Scott (married 1760) who is the son of Hugh Carothers (1747 -1782) and Sarah Purviance. However, the birth dates obviously show that Robert B. Carothers could not be the son of Hugh Carothers/Purviance. The Carothers lines are obviously long and complicated due to repeated first names. Any clues fellow Carothers researchers or substantiated resources to suggest? Thank you!!
