Are there any forum members familiar with Marlin, Texas. I am attempting to resurrect family members, many of whom are deceased. I thought I might try to see if there are cousins, friends, friends of deceased friends who might know the Moses family who once lived in Marlin Texas. Only family member I can think of at the moment is Teresa, who dad owned a barbecue cafe. She had a grandson whose name is Joel (now lives in Fort Worth). Teresa's dad was called "bud". Ramona was her niece and the mother of Joel.
Anyway,just fishing.

The family you are speaking of is the Carroll family. Moses Carroll was the first black man in Marlin to manage a major white-owned business, a beer distribution center in Marlin, during the 50s and 60s, until his death (around 1965-66).

The parents of Moses were Phil and Evelina (Wyman) Carroll. Phil owned and operated Phil Carroll's Bar-B-Q on Park Street in Marlin for many years. Phil and Evelina's 3 children were Moses, Mildred and Teresa. Teresa adopted Ramona when she was very young. Ramona had 2 daughters and one son (Joel). Ramona passed away a few years ago. She was living in Denver, Colorado at the timme.

My father was Charles Anthony Wyman, II. He was Evelina's brother. The older folks of the Marlin area refer to him as Professor Wyman. He taught at Guadalupe College and was a long time school master and educator in and around Marlin.

If you are a relative of the Carroll family, I'd be most interested in exploring the family tree with you. You can reach me at champstutoring@yahoo.com

Default Roddy's in Marlin

I , too am attempting to gain knowledge of family in Marlin. @ my father's funeral in 2008; I most recently connected with my family from the town. The famiy name is Roddy. But it appears that in Marlin, that may be a common name. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
