Jean Morris/ Washington County Newspaper (Webmaster Note: likely The Examiner newspaper), Tuesday, December 1, 1795, Washington, PA:

Whereas a certain RALPH SMITH, of Morgan Township in this County (Greene Co. after 1796), some years ago called me a convict in a public company, and later spoke the same language in ambiguous terms, (such as his good breeding afforded). I do hereby request the favor of Mr. Smith, to wash and shave and go and inquire of Mr. James GILASPY, on the headwaters of Buffalo Creek, and Robert CARREL on the head waters of the Wheeling Creek, two gentlemen which sailed with me from the port of Londonderry, the 14th day of August in the year 1768, and landed at Newcastle, DE. the 3rd day of October following and acknowledge himself a malicious calumniator.

A Marshall and Martha Carroll husband and wife died around the same time as Joseph M Carroll. I would put a Carroll ? for their last name.

Thanks again, keep up the great work that you do for the pioneers of Washington Co., PA. (I believe he was there when the area was called Headwaters of Wheeling Creek, Ohio Co., VA. The family traditions always say we are Virginians.)
