According to the 1910 census, Roger Carroll arrived in the Unites States from Ireland in 1845. Despite the date provided through his death certificate,
According to Dr. D. G. Chadbourne, M.D., Roger Carroll died on August 24, 1917, of a "Fracture of hip, Fall on floor in home" with old age a contributing factor. His address is listed as 916 Willis Ave. (Syracuse, NY), Ward 9. The certificate noted that Roger had resided at his place of death for 35 years [since 1882?], was retired, and had lived in the State of New York for 60 years [since 1857?]. The information was provided by Roger Carroll of Syracuse, NY.
His date of birth is given as November 12, the year not provided. Age at death is provided as 67 years, 9 months, 12 days, which would put his year of birth at 1849. This conflicts with information in the 1880 Onondaga County, Geddes Village census information that would suggest 44-year old Roger's birthyear was 1836. His census entry listed that he was born in Ireland, but the death record of his daughter, Mary Agnes, indicates he was born in Syracuse (information on her record provided by Edward Capels).
If it's accurate that he had been in the state for 60 years, then he might have been 7 or 8 years old when his family arrived in upstate New York.
