I have noticed, however, a page that has been omitted. That is page 301 in the original Gazetteer, Josiah Harringtons--Josiah Harrington with wife Mary Jennison Parker; Josiah Harrington, Jr. with wife Sarah, and Josiah Harrington with wife Susannah Warner. With thanks and best wishes.
I have inserted page 301 in it's proper order. This actually changed/corrected the parents of the children of Josiah and Susannah Warner listed on page 302. Good catch and thank you!

Calvin Harrington is in Shaftsbury, VT for the 1870 census with 2nd wife Nancy Tyler Carey, and with daughter (from first wife name unknown) Harriet Louise.
Nancy Carey was the wife of Benjamin Carey listed above who died in prison with Calvin Harrington. When he returned in 1864 he married Nancy Carey. Benjamin's brother Oliver is shown living next door to Calvin and Nancy in the 1870 census. Oliver was also a POW with Calvin and Benjamin.
Harriet Louise Harrington married Merriam James Ostrander 20 April 1876 in Woodford, VT. (Certificate gives Harriet's mother's name as Clarrisa)
Merriam dies 06 February 1906 Bennington, VT.
Harriet remarries to a Henry Richard Cone, 20 February 1909, in Bennington, VT.
Harriet and Merriam have 8 children.
I descend out of Sarah Herrington d/o Job Herrington & Alice Weightman or Elizabeth Ann Spencer (not sure which was Sarah's mother) of Rhode Island. Sarah married Elisha Baker and had four children: Christian, Dorcas, David and Herrington Baker. Elisha died between 1758-1761 (Year Will probated). Sarah married again after his death, in the later half of 1770's to a Mr. Potter, first name not yet determined, this surname for Sarah comes from her father's Job's Last Will.
Herrington Baker married a Lydia Jeems/James and had a fairly large family. Herrington, wife and children eventually settled at Penfield, Monroe Co, NY (earlier was known as Northfield, Ontario Co, NY). I noted the city was stated as "Plainfield" so I thought I would send in some of our family information to correct the wonderful book written in 1941...to correct what was stated.
I haven't yet found information for her first marriage...but am thinking it was rather short and produced no children, or at least none that I have found!
Children born to Elisha Baker and Sarah Harrington/Herrington d/o Job Herrington
Dorcas Baker, born 18 May 1754 at Exeter, Rhode Island
David Baker, born 06 Dec 1755 at Exeter, Rhode Island
Harrington Baker, born 08 Oct 1756 at Exeter, Rhode Island; died 1833 at Penfield, Monroe Co, NY; buried Oakwood Cemetery, Penfield, NY. American Revolutionary Soldier for State of Vermont.
Christian Baker, born May 18, 1758 at Exeter, Rhode Island
Thought you might like some new information relative to this particular line!
CAROLINE VAUGHAN, his wife.
Son of Joseph & w. Mercy Ann Thomas
Hosea's parents, Joseph and Mercy, are buried in the Harrington Hill cemetery at Warrensburg, NY. He died in April 1829 at 48 years - which gives a birth date of 1781; Mercy Ann died on 12 May 1831 at 46 years which gives a birth year of 1785 or 6.
According to family history Hosea was bound out to his brothers but ran away from them and went to work on the William Vaughan farm in Queensbury. The census says he had been there 16 years. There he met Caroline Vaughan and they were married 26 October 1848 by the Rev. John H. Baker. They continued to live on her parents farm until June of 1855 when they followed the footsteps of Caroline's uncles and moved to Waupaca, Wi. By this time they had given birth to four children:
Harriet C., b. 4 Aug 1849 lived only 16 days. She was buried at Sunnyside Cemetery.
Orion Capron b. 14 April 1851, Glens Falls, NY, d. 23 June 1933, Waupaca, WI.
Ovanda C. b. 10 May 1853 at Queensbury, NY, d. 4 May 1866 at Waupaca, WI
Carmi V. b. 6 Jan 1855 at Queensbury, NY, d. 1 Feb. 1858 at Waupaca
Harriet B. b. 27 April 1857 at Waupaca, WI, d. 26 Jan 1858 - 9 mos.
Leroy Hosea b. 27 Oct 1858 at Waupaca, WI, d. 17 March 1917 at Waupaca, WI
Emily L. b. 20 Dec 1859 at Waupaca, WI, d. 19 April 1877
Phoebe C. b. 21 July 1863 at Waupaca, d. 1 Sep 1863
Sarah Mariah b. 8 March 1865 at Waupaca, d. 15 Sep 1941 at Chippewa Falls, WI
Cora B. b 21 April 1866 at Waupaca, d. 25 July 1950 at Marion, WI
Linus J. b. 19 Oct 1869 at Waupaca, d. 6 Jan 1934 at Chippewa Falls, WI
We have much more on the descendents of Orion, Leroy, Sarah, Cora and Linus. My husband is a grandson of Leroy Hosea.
The "Orion Doubleday Harrington" listed never came to Waupaca with Hosea as far as we know - and their family all say they only came in 1855 after receiving a deed for property from Caroline's uncle.
Our daughter visited the Harrington Hill Cemetery several years ago and cleaned the stones there and 'read and recorded' the cemetery.
Hope you can use this to clear the record for Hosea.
Sincerely, Marion Bender

...back to the subject at hand. acording to the tree an area harrington clergy man and his father gave my dad at great uncle clyde's funeral we are descendents of rufus harrington and elizabeth aylesworth. they had a son john born january 1st 1785 who married a betsy cogsdel. this tree's originator is beleived to be deseaced, but i did follow it back by locations listed and did infact find much fact from this john to present. census records here in wisconsin also back this. john's son nathaniel and his wife sophia mosher lived in wisconsin and john moved here to be with them in his later years. john was born in rhode island, moved to new york, and then wisconsin. he is buried near my home as are his children nathaniel,rhoda, waity, phooebe, rhoda, waity, lewis. i come from nathiel "nat" harrington's son george who married isabel smith . the mariage of isabel and george disolved and no one was to mention or ask of family after that. my dad's little brother is the last of my older contacts and even today he gets edgy mentioning the past even being the last child alive with both parents being long gone. i feel no matter what the past holds if it were not for ancestory there would never had been a chance for our own lives. as i told my uncle," we can be proud of the line we came from ,or proud of what are line became,but in the end it is our line." well,have to get going for now. god bless,todd harrington

My name is Judie Dunkle and I am a direct descendant of Peter Harrington 3rd) born in Watertown 8 Dec 1799 (some say 1800) and died in Wakefield, Mass on 11 Jan 1890. I thought that you might like to have some more up to date information on the descendants of our Peter.
Most of Peters children did not marry and there are several who died as infants and 2 that I have not been able to gain any information about. To the best of my knowledge Charles Theodore is the only child to have children. I enjoyed your web site and the information about our Peter that you have. Judie

MARY HARRINGTON, b. before 1835; m. in Waltham, Mass., July 27, 1749, Josiah Bigelow.
Vit. Rcds. Waltham, Mass.
I think I have the Josiah Bigelow lineage (Josiah, Thomas, Samuel, John the emigrant) If you think this is accurate, I think also that this is the lineage for Mary Harrington Bigelow Jonas, John and Robert (the emigrant). Reason being that my ancestors were connected with both the Harrington and Bigelow families in Sudbury and Marlboro (and also Worcester County)
(Chuck note: As I researched your comments I noticed that the book does not have an entry for Jonas as son of John. I checked FamilySearch.org and found he is apparently a twin to James born 2 Apr 1695 and married Abigail Stearns. Perhaps that is why the lineage was not determined at the time this book was put together in 1941.)

I have done some work on Stephen Harrington/Herrington of Conn/Richfield NY. I have found the wife of Stephen Herrington to be Sabra Back daughter of Jesse Back. You have Buck. Sabra went on the marry Arnold Green of Richfield Ny and died between 1855 and 1860. She was living with her son Nathan in 1855. Nathan lived in Richfield until around 1870 with his mother and brother Clark. There are sisters listed as Sally Rhyde, Lydia Sitts and Betsy Lewis. The ages do not match for them to be his sisters. I believe they might be his daughters. Sabras pension claim does not list daughters so I wonder if these are not Nathans daughters. Do you have anything on Nathan, Clark or King besides what you have listed? All the Best

Thank you for the email. I would appreciate you adding my comments on the web site, This branch has had me stumped for years. Lydia Sitts listed with Nathan Herrington was first married to Ruben Williams. They had sons George, Owen and David. I have so many different ages listed for her that I cannot figure out if she is Nathans sister or daughter. It is odd that Sabra Herrington does not mention daughters in the pension file yet we have Lydia "Liddie" Sitts, Elizabeth "Betsy" Lewis and Sarah "Sally" Rhyde. The ages are close but Stephen is said to have died in 1811 so I believe some if not all are Nathans daughters. Nathan appears on the 1820 thru 1870 Census for Richfield. Just for the record some indexs wrongly list Richfield as Richland. Nathan and Clark lived togheter for awhile and King appears as well. Thank you and have a happy holiday,
First of all, please let me say how incredibly impressed I am with your website!!! It's very cool.
I'm the granddaughter of Harold Harrington, printer of Oshkosh, WI, who died Jan 21 1960. I'm currently living in Manchester, NH, and am doing a bit of research on Edward Wetherbee Harrington who was mayor here from 1859-1860. Your website's details about his life are incorrect.
You correctly note that he was born in Acton, MA, on 21 June 1816. According to his obituary in the Manchester Mirror and American, printed on July 12, 1876:
He moved to Manchester (NH, not MA) in 1839 and opened the city's first restaurant. He did a brisk business serving the many workman who were constructing textile mills at that time.
He married Frances M. Dearborn in May 1843. She died in November 1844, leaving him with one daughter, Frances M. Harrington. (She later married the Hon. John P. Bartlett, who served as a judge in Manchester.)
In May 1849 he married Margaret A. Bond. They had four children, two of whom survived to adulthood. Edward W., Jr., and Delena were living in Manchester at the time of his death.
He was mayor of Manchester from 1859-1860 and was involved in many aspects of civic life.
He died on July 10, 1876, in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he had traveled to seek relief from gout. He is buried in Valley Cemetery in Manchester, in an ornate tomb. See photo online
His wife Margaret died in November 1902.
Hope that helps!!!
Almond (A.S.) Harrington (listed as Herrington in 1860 Barton County Missouri census) born Burlington, NY Nov. 5th, 1810 died Trinidad Colorado April 3, 1899 ( I have a photo of him) married to Eliza A. Mason who was born at Williamstown Mass May 24, 1816 and died Boston, Barton County, Missouri 1904. They were maried in Oneida County, New York 1831. Eliza Mason can be traced to 1620. They had 4 sons and 5 daughters. They moved from Lima, Ohio in 1855 to Iowa City and then in 1857 to Johnson County, Missouri then moved in 1858 to Barton County. They lived in Lamar during the Civil War. Their son Henry F. Harrington was the first sheriff in Barton County after the Civil War and would have likely known Wyatt Earp who was a constable. Their youngest son, Charles, was also later a sheriff of Barton County. In his obituary, it says that Almond's great grandfather was Daniel Harrington who fought in the Revolutionary War at Lexington. It also mentions 9 Harringtons who fought with Col. Stark in the Battle of Bennington. The 1860 Barton County Census lists A.S. Harrington age 48 born in NY; Eliza A. age 44 born in Mass; Fernando age 25 born in Ohio; Henry F. age 23 born in Ohio; Ann J. age 16 born in Ohio; Virginia age 12 born in Ohio; Teresa age 7 born in Ohio; and Charles A. age 6 born in Ohio.
Henry Franklin Harrington (sometimes mispelled Henery) was born July 9, 1837 in Lima Ohio. He died Jan 20, 1911 in Ekalaka, Montana. He married Lucinda (Murphy) Harrington born 1848 in Buchanan County MO. Died July 20, 1928 at Ridgeway, Montana. Henry's brother Charles A. Harrington married Martha Ellen Cones on Sept 17, 1871, and they had 13 children (11 of whom survived their parents). They were Messrs Sumner and Harry Harrington of Lemoore California, Frank Harrington of Lamar, Ronald Harrington of Jasper MO, George Harrington of Zack OK, Mrs. A.C. Kopp of Lamar, and Misses Josephine, Ella, Edna, and Elva. Charles served as sheriff in 1908.
Henry and Lucinda had three children: Charles A. Harrington born about 1869, J. Dunn Harrington born about 1871, and Walter Franklin Harrington born April 3, 1874 in Lamar MO. He died July 16, 1929 in Alzada, Montana. He was married to Margaret (Johnston) Harrington born Sept 2, 1883 in Alzada, Montana and died January 6, 1959 in Ekalaka, Montana.
Their son was Homer Henry Harrington born May 31st, 1907 in Alzada, Montana. and died April 22, 1967 in Ekalaka, Montana.
I have just come across your site and can make the following correction:
Your web site suggests that the Joel Harrington who married Ruth Wheeler was the son of Samuel Harrington but this is incorrect. The Joel Harrington who married Ruth Wheeler was the son of Jabez Harrington and Abigail Smith.
Joel Harrington died 10 Dec 1839 age 71-9-15 and both wives: Ruth Wheeler & Olive [--?--] are buried in the Laona Cemetery, Pomfret, Chautauqua County, NY.
I have scanned the pertinent information which I found online and will attach them to this e-mail (the pdf file is 2 pages). I will also attach an outline descendant tree for Joel Harrington which I have generated from my FTM program.
The information on the cemetery is online at www.rootsweb.com/~nychauta/CEMETERY/Pomfret/Laona2.html. You will see there is also listed a Sylvia, wife of Joel Harrington who died 1 Mar 1826 at age 47 but I can't fit her in???
The will is online at www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nychauta/Wills/Volume1.htm. FHL film #588096; Wills Chautauqua County NY, Vol 1: 1831-1842
Joel Harrington and Ruth Wheeler were the parents of Abigail Harrington born abt 1795 who married Otis Goulding. Otis & Abigail Goulding were my great-great-great-grandparents.
Dear Chuck -- I have some info that will correct what I see as a probable mistake in the Harrington Genealogy. The land sold in Kingsbury, NY was very likely sold by Ebenezer Harrington who was married to Paulina Doolin. They did have a son, Asa, but would not have been found in the 1800 census in the Kingsbury area. There was an Ebenezer Harrington married to Paulina Burnham, who could have been the family in the 1800 census. My Ebenezer was in Cayuga County, NY at that time. The info below was copied from my family bible and a handwritten letter from an ancestor. Could you include this in your notes so that future researchers can take this into consideration when researching Ebenezer of Kingsbury, NY?
She referred to the listing of Ebenezer Harrington and Paulina Burnham.
