I am searching for the birthplace of my g-grandfather Patrick Carroll. He was born in Ireland, I believe in 1828. He was Roman Catholic and immigrated to the US sometime in the 1850's. He lived in the Decatur, Il. area from 1860 - 1885 and raised a family of 9 children. In 1885 he returned to Ireland and passed away in a Queenstown hospital on June 23, 1885. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Roots Ireland has 20 Patrick Carroll baptismal records for 1828. Five of these records were for Patrick Carrolls in Co. Kilkenny.  However, keeep in mind that many parishes throughout Ireland do not have records back to 1828.  (See my response to your Michael Carroll query).
