Notes for Carroll Greer:
I have this family on and have copies of the 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880 Benton County Tennessee Censuses. I also obtained some of this information from Dallas Greer. He stated that Carroll was hit by a train while walking with a grandson along the railroad tracks. He stated that the grandson was uninjured but Carroll died from his injuries. He stated that he has seen a copy of a telegram from Thomas Wesley to Andrew Jackson that said "Father was killed by a train unlawfully and I want you to come." The telegram was sent from Big Sandy, Benton County Tennessee in care of the postmaster at Danville, Arkansas.
