Notes for Edward Patrick Carroll, Sr:
Edward P. Carroll, Sr. was a hard working Railroad Brakeman who had to struggle just to make
ends meet. He was an idealist, firm and strong of conviction with great confidence and love for his country. As President of the Local Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen he went on strike against the railroads and because he would not sacrifice principle he never went back.

Notes for Anna Marie "Mary" DeBow:
Mary, as she was known to everyone, was quiet, warm and loving with an inner strength that belied her gentle manner. When things went wrong (as they frequently did) she seemed to exude a positive attitude that quieted the doubts and fears that were part of our lives. She was the ship's rudder, the bulwark of peaceful solutions to stressful times. She cared, she loved and she held a family close to her heart. The title that best fit her and one she wore proudly was, Mother. She spent the last 15 years of her life in St. Joseph's Manor, Meadowbrook, where she died December 21, 1990.
