JUDGE JOE McCARROLL is a son of Charles A. and Elvira Anne McCarroll, of
Christian County; he is a native of the county, born April 6, 1848; he was
reared to manhood on the farm, and received his early education in the
private schools of the country, and in schools of Hopkinsville. He was
thereby enabled to assume the duties of a teacher, which he did in the
years 1870 and 1871, improving his spare moments meantime in the study of
law. In October, 1862, he entered the Law Department of the Louisville
University, and received his license to practice in March, 1873; he
immediately began to practice in Hopkinsville, associated with Judge W. P.
Winfree, under the firm name of Winfree & McCarroll. The partnership
terminated by the election of Winfree to the Judgeship in 1882. In 1878
Mr. McCarroll was elected to the office of City Judge, which he filled with
acceptability and credit for four years. He is ardently interested in the
cause of education, and for several years has been a member of the
Hopkinsville Board of Education, of which he is now Secretary. He is an
honored member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, also of the Masonic
fraternity and Knights of Pythias, in both of which he has filled all the
position of honor. Mr. McCarroll was married in Henderson County, Ky.,
September 23, 1880, to Miss Mary T. Holloway, daughter of John Holloway, a
deceased resident of Henderson County, ex-member of the State Legislature,
and father of Hon. William S. Holloway, present Representative. They have
had two children, viz.: Anne, born July 8, 1881, and John Holloway
McCarroll, born July 14, 1883. Little Anne died August 23, 1884.
