Sorry nope. You want my g-g-g-uncle, Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence.
History says "Enfeebled by age and illness, Carroll received the last rites. On his deathbed, he said that he had always fixed on the Cross of Christ and that he had always received great consolation from the practice of the devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. He died at age 80 on December 3, 1815 and was buried in the chapel of St. Mary's College Seminary but later his remains were removed to the Cathedral, later Basilica of the Assumption in Baltimore, MD."
My family oral tradition is that on his deathbed he confessed to being a freemason.
It was a badly-kept secret that caused no end of aggravation to his cousin John Carroll, the fist US bishop. Because there was so much distrust of Catholics at the time he was shut out of the secret meetings where they drank coffee and smoked hemp, so he joined the masons. Supposedly he refused to renounce his faith, but the masons let it slide because he was one of the richest men in the room and was willing to write big checks to form a continental army.
So now you know.
