Heads of Families Living on Bayou Pierre Tomas Tarinton,age 50-90, 4 horses(no others in household). This is how the Spanish spelled Thomas Harrington. NOTE: If this age is correct, this one would have been born by 1742, and would thus be too old to be the Thomas who married Raynor Higdon. The Thomas who married Anna Brocus 1795 in the Natchez District (below) was most likely the son of Thomas & Sarah __?____ Harrington of Franklin Co, Georgia, BUT he was born circa 1770 I think. The age reported on this census makes it puzzling. MARRIAGE RECORD-DIOCESE OF BATON ROUGE VOL2, 1770-1803 1/17/1795 Thomas Harrington m. Nannette Anna Brocus On the license both gave their religion as "Calvinist". NOTE: In Spanish Natchez, only marriages in the Catholic church were legally sanctioned, so this explains why they were married in Baton Rouge. NATCHEZ COURT RECORDS 1767-1805 May Wilson McBee 24 Jan 1795 Robert ASHLEY, from SC to the Natchez District, was involved in a suit over a runaway slave before Judge Peter Bryan BRUIN of Bayou Pierre District.

He knew the land to be free of any claim but that of said Thos. William Broccus signed with his mark. v2, p65 NOTE: In looking at the Mar 1804 unrecorded land claim and then this testimony from the elder Thomas Harrington's father-in-law, I can't help but note these events in context with the fact that Thomas's wife Nannette 'Anna' Brocus Brashears Harrington, was in Orphans Court in Feb 1804 seeking custody of the children.

The two boys and two girls under age 21 enumerated in the census were born after 1789. The other male over 21 enumerated might have been a brother.

Herrington, Isaac Greene Co. Herrington, William Greene Co. Herrington, Thomas Lawrence Co. Herrington, Harvey Monroe Co. [See note below] NOTE: The area that became Alabama was originally part of the Mississippi Territory from 1798 to 1817. In 1816 Monroe County, Alabama was part of the Mississippi Territory. The county contained nearly half of the present State of Alabama. Its western boundary was the ridge of dividing the waters of the Alabama and Cahaba rivers from the Tombigbee and Tuscaloosa rivers; the northen boundary was the mountains of Blount and St. Clair Counties; the southern boundary was the same as the southern boundary of the present day State of Alabama; and the eastern boundary of the county was a line south east from Wetumka to a point below Eufaula. Monroe County was established on 5 June 1815 and retained the land described above until after the State of Alabama was established. In 1819, Montgomery, Conecuh and Wilcox counties were established, and thus, reduced Monroe County to its present size.

Thus, people living in Amite in 1810 census could have lived in Lawrence, Marion, or Pike in 1820 census without having physically moved, due to shifting county boundaries. {see Pike County Records} ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Adams County, Mississippi Formed 1799 from Natchez District ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Marriage Records of Adams County, Mississippi 1810 xx xxx Bannister Plowden - Catherine Price 1813 xx xxx Rachael Herrington - Josiah Jenkins 1814 xx xxx Alexander Calvit - Barbara Wood ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sexton Records of Adams County, Mississippi 24 Oct 1825 William HARRINGTON died in Natchez, MS of yellow fever.

Also this tends to suggest to me that the Thomas Harrington who lived in 1810 Amite is the same one who served in 1815 from Marion and paid taxes in the 1820's in Lawrence. If so, that is the same one who lived 1830 Rankin and 1840 Scott. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Se1ected Names from 1816 Census of Heads of Families Amite County, Mississippi Robert ANDERSON Littleton CAPEL Isaac CHADDOCK William HERBERT Jeptha HARRINGTON Alexander MARTIN Joseph PRICE Matthew RUSHING It appears to me that one has to look to Lawrence and Marion counties after 1813 for some people who were enumerated in 1810 Amite due to county formations and changing county lines. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1820 Census Amite County, Mississippi Males Females 0 10 16 16 26 45 0 10 16 26 45 n - - - - - n - - - - 10 16 18 26 45 + 10 16 26 45 + Slaves ------------------------------------ ------ 30 McMorris Alexander 0--0--0--2--0--1 1--2--1--0--1 Harrington Hezekiah 3--0--0--1--1--0 2--0--0--1--0 31 Harrington Jeptha 3--3--1--2--0--1 2--0--0--1--0 10 31 Cates Ezra 1--1--0--0--0--1 2--0--1--0--1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1830 Census Amite County, Mississippi Males Females U 5 10 15 20 30 40 50 60 U 5 10 15 20 30 40 50 60 n - - - - - - - - n - - - - - - - - d 10 15 20 30 40 50 60 70 d 10 15 20 30 40 50 60 70 pg 55 Hezekiah Herrington 3--2--2--1--0--0--1--0--0 0--0--0--0--0--1--0--0--0 35 slaves Hezekiah age 40-50 (born 1780-1790) wife age 30-40 1 male age 15-20 (born 1810-1815) 2 male age 10-15 (born 1815-1820) 2 male age 5-10 (born 1820-1825) 3 male age 0- 5 (born 1825-1830) -------------------- pg 55 Jeptha Herrington 0--1--3--1--1--0--0--1--0 0--1--0--0--0--0--1--0--0 37 slaves Jeptha age 50-60 (born 1770-1780) wife age 40-50 born 1780-1790) 1 male age 20-30 (born 1800-1810) 1 male age 15-20 (born 1810-1815) 3 male age 10-15 (born 1815-1820) 1 male age 5-10 (born 1820-1825) female age 5-10 (born 1820-1825) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1840 Census Amite County, Mississippi Males Females U 5 10 15 20 30 40 50 60 70 U 5 10 15 20 30 40 50 60 n - - - - - - - - - n - - - - - - - - d 10 15 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 d 10 15 20 30 40 50 60 70 ---------------------------- ------------------------- Pg 63 Herrington, Abel Pg 63 Herrington, Andmartin? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wills of Amite County, Mississippi Will of Sarah Birt Cobb Bradford, 1824, Amite County Will book Vol. I p. 52; Inventory of the Estate of Sarah Birt Cobb Bradford, 1824, Amite County Archive File 16.) Jeptha Harrington had inherited property from his aunt Sarah Birt Cobb Bradford in 1824. Sarah Birt Cobb had married Benjamin Bradford in her home parish of West Feliciana, LA but after her 1820 wedding had moved to the then sparsely settled northeastern corner of Amite County where by the late 1830s most of the Harrington family continued to live. Benjamin Bradford must have died soon after for her will is part of the original survey; she could not have written her will unless she was no longer married. While there are no other records of other marriages, the number of last names she used and the fact that Sarah Bradford described herself in her will as having "feeble bodily health consider[ing] my advanced life," Benjamin Bradford was probably not her first husband. She left no slaves or money that would indicate her property had been passed on to either Jeptha Herrington or Nancy Williford for her estate consisted entirely of livestock, fodder, and farm implements. Will of Nancy L. Williford, dated June 17,1840 Probated Nov 24, 1840 Amite County Will Book, Vol. I, p. 210. Nancy L. Smith Harrington Williford, late of Maurey County, Tennessee, was visiting relations in Amite County in the summer of 1840 when she fell ill. Although she was then currently a resident of Tennessee, Nancy had previously lived in northern Amite County after her first marriage in 1835. In the previous five years Nancy Williford had inherited property from her father, Thomas Smith, of Maurey County, her first husband, James Harrington, in Pike County, Mississippi, her husband's brother Jeptha Harrington of Amite County, and from her brother, William Smith, in Yazoo County, Mississippi. Nancy Williford's former brother-in-law Jeptha Harrington had left her fifty dollars in his November 1837 will.(28) During this last stay Nancy bequeathed her entire estate to her present husband, Almasine Williford, whom she had married in 1838. he records for both Pike County and Yazoo County from the 1840s have been lost. The Harrington lands in Amite County are entirely within Sections one and two of Township Three, Range 6 in the northeastern corner of the county just adjacent to Pike County. James Harrington's lands may have been adjacent to the rest of the family property but across the county line. During her first marriage Nancy Harrington did worship in Amite County for she was received as a member of the Pisgah Presbyterian Church on September 231837.

It has been rumored that the burial of my late deceased father, Jeptha Herrington, was designed to palm a fraud upon the community; and some have been induced to believe that he is actually alive. So unnatural an act would not only be calculated to darken the memory of my departed parent, whom I at least hoped charity would now suffer to rest in peace, but such an act could not fail to draw down public odium upon the character of his sons who survive him. It is on this account and this alone that I have thought proper to publish the sub-joined certificates. /s/ Hezekiah F. Herrington Manchester, August 10, 1838 "I hereby certify that I attended upon Mr. Jeptha Herrington upon the 17th and 16th days of July last and that I left him dying upon the evening of the 16th and did not suppose that he could live over eight or ten hours, his disease was congestive fever of a highly malignant character. I imployed the workman to make the coffin and know full well that Jeptha Herrington did die upon his and his sons plantation (H. Herrington) upon the Yazoo nine miles below Manchester, and that further his son started to remove the corpse to Amite County in the lower part of this State. /s/ W. Dorsey, M.D. Yazoo County, Miss August 16, 1838 We hereby certify that on the 16th day of July having received information that Mr. Jeptha Herrington was very sick on his and H. F. Herrington's farm on the Yazoo River 8 or 9 miles below Manchester, we rode to see him and found him dieing, we remained with him all night about two o'clock he died, and we assisted in dressing him and laying him out and sat up with the corpse until daylight, his son H. F. Herrington informed us that he was going to carry him to Amite County to bury him. And we well know that he started with him. /s/ Warren Alford C. J. Crane John J. Burris Manchester, Herrington's Landing, August 17, 1838 This is to certify that on the 16 day of July I was called upon to go to Mr. H. F. Herrington's plantation about 8 or 9 miles from Manchester in Yazoo County, Miss. I being informed by one of Mr. H. F. Herrington's boys that the father of Mr. H. F. Herrington was lying very sick and not expected to live. I immediately proceeded to Mr. H. F. Herrington's plantation and found the father of Mr. H. F. Herrington lying at the point of death. I also found on my arrival that Doctor Dorsey, C. Crane and Mr. Parriss(?) were there, I also the next day in the morning went to the plantation of Mr. H. F. Herrington as he requested I should superintend his business until his return from Amite County as he was obliged to take the corpse of his father down there to be buried, it being his fathers request when on his death bed.

James M. and Young John were deceased when the will was written in 1838. I believe the others that were enumerated in the 1820 Census had died young." [MY NOTE: Apparently Jeptha's son T. James Harrington died ] [ before 1840 when his wife Lucy remarried to ] [ Turner McKinney, so this would account for 1 son ] "Jeptha was a member of the Georgia Militia and served in the War of 1812. I have Jeptha's passport from Georgia to Mississippi through the Cherokee Nation issued in 1806. I believe it may have been a military mission and that he went back to Georgia and moved to Miss. later sometime before 1816." "If you should ever run across the name of Ernest Harrington in your Texas research I would be very glad to hear of it. He was my father's brother. Their parents and grandparents died when they were young. They lived with a step grandfather awhile, then left home for New Orleans. They left New Orleans and came as far as Memphis together. There they separated. My father (Birt Garner Harrington 1867-1945) came to Kentucky and Ernest left for Texas. He was never heard from again." ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1850 Census Amite County, Mississippi PG_NO DWL_ LINE LAST_NAME FIRST_NAME AGE SEX BIRTH_PL NOTE 141 141 Tarver E.

The elder Alexander McMorris was from Scotland. His wife, Elizabeth Baxter, was also from Scotland. They emigrated to America and were married in Edgefield District, South Carolina, at the close of the Revolutionary War, where they lived until their children were nearly all grown, when they came to Mississippi and settled in Amite County. Alexander McMorris Jr was their son. Joseph Herrington, of Irish descent, and Anne Brown, of English parentage, were married in Sumpter District, South Carolina, where all their children were born. Then they moved to Tennessee, where both died, after which their children moved to Mississippi and also settled in Amite County. Among these children was Esther Herrington, who became the wife of Alexander McMorris, Jr, in 1842, and in 1843 he bought the place on Bogue Chitto, where the church was organized in 1812, and lived there until his death in 1850. Alexander McMorris Jr and Esther Herrington had two children: Richard H. McMorris who married Maggie Jones and Esther Ann McMorris who married Isaac Charles Dick.

The members of the first Scott County Board of Police (now called the Board of Supervisors) were John Dunn, James Russell, Wade H. Holland, Stephen H. Bery, and Jeremiah B. White Berryville, which no longer exists as a town, was the first seat of county government. It was located four miles southwest of the city of Forest and served as the county seat. Prior to the Civil War, Scott County was located at Hillsboro. During the Civil War it was burned to the ground on Sherman's famous "March to the Sea."

It was named for the Yazoo River, which flows thru it. The original county lines took in the area which is presently the counties of HOLMES, ISSAQUENA, MADISON, WASHINGTON, and parts of HUMPHREY and SHARKEY. It was bounded on the east by the BIG BLACK and PEARL Rivers, on the south by Warren County, on the west by the MISSISSIPPI River, and on the north by the Choctaw Indian Territory. Pg 4 1834 TAX LIST J. Herrington H.F. & _?_ Herrington Pg 5 I. B. Majors ** Daniel Henderson ** _?_ Herrington MY NOTE: ** An Isaac B. Majors patented land in Anderson Co, Texas 17 March 1859. A Daniel Henderson from Miss also moved to Anderson County, Texas. Daniel Henderson was a neighbor in Texas of the Thomas and William Harrington who resided 1850 Scott Co, Miss and who moved to Anderson Co, Texas in 1851. I am wondering if that is a clue to a possible kinship with these Yazoo County Harringtons. Pg 8 Thomas Calvet ^^ Stephen Calvet ^^ Charles Calvet ^^ Alexander Calvet ^^ Pg 9 1843 TAX LIST H. W.

Andrew had a daughter Texana who was born 24 Oct 1854 in San Augustine, Texas, but his next child Hamilton was born 1857 in Columbia Co, Arkansas. So we know that Andrew J. came to Texas for a short period. His brother-in-law Daniel Smith received a Republic of TX bounty warrant in 1837 and was enumerated in the 1850 San Augustine Co, Texas census. However by 1855 they had gone on to Columbia Co, Arkansas.
