      (Tom, if you recall the history of that area--it was in 1914 that the Imperial St. Landry Parish was divided creating Evangeline Parish. Bayou Chicot is in present day Evangeline.  The 1 year old "Thomas, Jr." in the 1870 census was my great grandfather.)

      A NOTABLE SUPERINTENDENT
          That Rev. T. R. Carroll, Superintendent of the Methodist Sunday School Army, and a most efficient on, the following facts will show:  in 1865 he organized a school at Bell Chaney Springs, St. Landry Parish, and he was made its superintendent.
          In 1867, a Sunday school was organized at Science Hill under a brush arbor, and he became the superintendent.  When a year later a log school house was built and a Methodist Church was organized, he was retained as superintendent and served until 1880, at which time he moved to Ville Platte and organized a school in his own home.
          In 1885 he moved into the vicinity of Washington and at once placed his letter in the Methodist Church.  He was then appointed superintendent of the Washington school and has been re-elected annually ever since.  It will be seen that his work as superintendent covers a period of forty-seven years.  Brother Carroll is still in good and bids fair for as many years in the service he loves so much.  He is the local preacher and assists the pastor in every way possible.
      Copied from "The Visitor", Methodist-Episcopal magazine published July 21, 1912, at Nashville, Tennessee.

      OBITUARY
      Death of Judge T. R. Carroll
          "God touched him with His finger, and he slept," the poet wrote.  So may we say of this grand old man --- "God touched him and he slept," but not until a beautiful life was lived, a noble example of patience, fidelity to truth and faith were given.  Mr. Carroll came to our city last Saturday evening to console and to be with his daughter, Mrs. E. T. Lafleur in her hours of sorrows, but the hand of Divinity had layed upon him and he too in short time was called to meet his Maker.
          Mr. Carroll attended Sunday school at the M.E. Church, leading in prayer and explaining the lesson which on this occasion was "The Good Samaritan" and took deep interest in the fact that our town possessed such a neat church.  Judge Carroll died as he wished, it is said that it was his desire to die after participating in a religious service.  On leaving the church as he crossed in front of the home of Emile Ludeau, he was seized with a weak spell, and at once rushed to the home of his daughter, Mrs. E. T. Lafleur, where medical help was summoned but to no avail for his time had come, and the Angel of death claimed him in less than half an hour.  Judge Carroll was 75 years of age.  He had been justice of the peace at Washington for a number of years.  Was a member of Co. K. Fifth Louisiana of which the venerable Samuel Haas was captain.  On the 4th of last July at Gettysburg, Col. Scheumaker of the North and Judge Carroll of the South tied the Golden Knot of Peace.  Judge Carroll was the oldest Sunday School Superintendent in the state.  Had he lived until next June he would have been occupying this position for forty-nine years.  He was married twice his first wife dying several years ago.  He is survived by his widow several children and a number of grandchildren.  The interment was in the Moundville private graveyard near Washington.  Rev. Morgan, officiating.  The Banner extends its sympathy to those who called to mourn his loss.
