Herndon connection? Two families are cousins?

Jeanette W Cuthriell and Laroy A Evans have Richard Herndon and Lucy Poe as George Herndon's parents.

Nancy Gobble has Richard Herndon and Sarah Lucy Poe as George Herndon's parents.

There was a Sarah Poe that married a William Herndon. William Herndon might have been Richard Herndon's cousin. As I was doing some research I came across common ancestors for George Herndon (b 1731 m Sarah Wingfield b 1732) and John Herndon (b 1742 m Sarah Wingfield b 1746).

At first I thought that the Sarah Wingfield's were the same person but the dates of birth, husbands, and children do not match.
(a.) Sarah Herndon (b About 1762) whose mother Sarah Wingfield married George Herndon married a Henry McCoy (b About 1750).
(b.) Sarah Herndon (b 1772) whose mother Sarah Wingfield married John Herndon married George Baber.

This started because I had an Elizabeth Beavers (Baeber) who married Abimelec Barbee. I was trying to see if possible Elizabeth Beavers connected to any of my Bevers family that was already in my tree.

I found that Elizabeth Beavers parents were George Baber and Sarah Herndon. I knew I had a Sarah Herndon in my tree but the dates of birth did not match up so I listed her as another person. Sarah Herndonís parents were John Herndon and Sarah Wingfield. I knew I had a Sarah Wingfield in my tree but I had her married to a George Herndon not a John Herndon so I listed her as a separated person and kept going. I could not find who this Sarah Wingfieldís parents were but her husband John Herndonís parents were William Herndon and Sarah Poe. William Herndonís parents were James Herndon and Mary Elliott George. James Herndonís parents were William Herndon and Catherine Digges. William Herndonís parents were William Herndon and Ann Bishop. William Herndonís parents were John Herndon and Mary McGregor. John Herndonís parents were John Herndon and Colita Kinsinton. John Herndonís parents were Albert John Herndon and Martha Ann Broderick.

I am not sure what made me realize that I had two Colita Kinsintons in my tree but when I started looking at both of them I realized they are the same person. Both married a John Herndon and both Colitaís in laws were Albert John Herndon and Martha Ann Broderick.

The lines are as follows:
Albert John Herndon b 1556 m Colita Kinsinton b 1555
John Herndon b 1569 m Mary McGregor
William Herndon b 1621 m Ann Bishop b 1622
William Herndon b 1678 m Catherine Digges b 1645
Edward Herndon b m Mary Waller b 1674
Richard Herndon b 1708
George Herndon b 1731 m Sarah Wingfield b 1732
many children


Albert John Herndon b 1565 m Colita Kinsinton b 1555
John Herndon b 1596 m Mary McGregor b 1602
William Herndon b 1620 m Ann Bishop b1622
William Herndon b 1649 m Catherine Digges b 1654
James Herndon b 1683 m Mary Elliott George b 1686
William Herndon b 1706 m Sarah Poe b1718
John Herndon b 1742 m Sarah Wingfield b 1746
Sarah Herndon b 1772 m George Baber b ????


I still feel that the Sarah Wingfield who married George Herndon b 1731 and the Sarah Wingfield who married John Herndon b 1742 are the same person but it is not proven.

I also wonder if Lucy Poe and Sarah Poe are sisters.

I have contacted Jeanette W Cuthriell, Laroy A Evans, Nancy Gobble and asking where they got their information. Jessica Davis Nov 14, 2009
