Carrolltonian (inhabitant of Carrollton)

“Carrolltonian” is the name of an inhabitant of Carrollton, Texas. The name “Carrolltonian” has been cited in print since at least 1927.
Wikipedia: Carrollton, Texas
Carrollton is a city in Denton County, Dallas County and Collin County in the U.S. state of Texas. As of 2005, census estimates the city’s total population to be 122,699. Carrollton is a suburb of Dallas. The city of Carrollton has been named to America’s 2006 Top 100 Places to Live for 2006 by Relocate America. Also, in 2006, Carrollton was selected as the 19th best place to live in the United States by Money magazine. It was later named the 15th best place to live among small cities in 2008 by Money magazine.
25 November 1927, Richardson (TX) Echo, “Pastors and Surprise Dinners,” pg. 3, col. 3:
If over in Richardson you have parishoners that garnish the chicken with fry and the cake with chocolate icing, don’t forget that you have the concrete, while the wily Carrolltonian is offering only the abstract.
27 November 1940, Dallas (TX) Morning News, “The State Press,” sec. 2, pg. 2, col. 5:
You haven’t been the Chronicle’s publisher for all the thirty-six years that newspaper has lived, but you have brought it through some of the tightest times Carrollton and the Carrolltonians have ever known.

Yes, I’ve spent all but four of my 41 years living within 15 miles of downtown Dallas; not always in the city proper but close enough so that it made no sense to establish a separate suburban identity as a Carrolltonian or a Garlandite.

Which suburbs are the safest, have the best schools, housing, environmental quality, and ambiance? We studied 41 communities and discovered the ideal places to live in the Dallas metro area.
A few caveats here: Obviously, measuring from the center of a very large suburb like Carrollton yields a longer commute than is actually faced by a Carrolltonian who lives near the city’s border with Dallas.

Any Carrolltonites/Carrolltonians/Carrolltoners here? It’s probably a long shot, but I figured I would ask!
