CARROLL, John & Lura

I am searching for information on Lura Cameron Carroll and her husband John Carroll. They were probably born around the 1860's. He died at a relatively young age --after he had sired quite a few children. Some of the daughters were--Hattie, Mamie (my grandmother), Gussie, Jimmie, Lottie. Some of the sons were--Stering (owned a retail store in Cedartown), Widson (died in 1949 when his car ran off the road into a creek and he drowned).
I was told that after John died, the people of Cedartown made up money to move Lura and the children out of the country into Cedartown proper. The brick house still stands on the street right beside the viaduct on the road to Rockmart.
My grandmother, Mamie, married Roscoe Mullinax, Sr. from Lake Creek. He and my father, Roscoe Jr. owned and operated a mechanic's garage in Cedartown for a number of years called Mullinax and Son. My father, mother and I moved away to Marietta 1951.
I was told that the Carrolls are believed to have been buried "near the old shirt factory." Does anyone know for sure?
I would like to know the couples' dates of birth and death; the names of all their children; and if the story of the townfolk building them a house is true. Any info at all would be appreciated. Thanks.
