Miss Eleanor Carroll of Parrsboro

I believe her parents were Capt. Thomas J. Carroll and Martha McGuire.

However, I can't locate Eleanor or Frances on the various censuses.

Capt. Carroll married late in life on 6 Feb 1879 to Martha McGuire and died
six years later on 22 Sep 1885. There was only a six year gap to have
children.

One of the daughters must have married a Collins with issue of a daughter,
Martha Collins.
