Carroll, John an Irish Congregation al minister, was born at Ballynick, Armagh, in 1791. He grew up a Christian; early thirsted to preach the Gospel; received his special ministerial preparation at Dublin Theological Institution, and began his ministerial office at Ballycraigy, Antrim, in 1817. Here he labored with noble self-sacrifice and consuming zeal till 1827, when he accepted a call to Richhill, Armagh, where he remained twenty-one years, becoming exceedingly popular as a preacher, and greatly respected as a pastor. In 1848 Mr. Carroll resigned the pastorate, removed to Newry, labored for several years as evangelist, and then returned to his native place, where he died, May 14, 1867. See (Lond.) Cong.
