Hi Gary,
You and I have same info re children of Mary Pamp(h)lin Carrington. The boys names are all common in the Carrington family going back several hundred years.
Ran across interesting site last night www:// (notice spelling Pamphlin) This is the Pamphlin's Family & Connections home page. There is discussion of two volume work titled same as above. Parts of the first and second chapters are on line as well as name index(Pamphlin surname only). There were hundreds of Mary Pamphlins listed by volume and page number. If we can locate copies of these books or find someone on the Pamphlin Forum who would be willing to do a look-up, this might answer our questions. The books are still in print and are offered for sale.
Checking on FamilySearch I found the Pamphlin line given as a lead by Chris Pamplin. This family was traced to progenitor, Geoffrey Paunfiliun, born 1250 in the Kingdon of Navarre. Died 1304 Thaxted, England (Essex?). Cause of death :hanged for stealing horses.
They always say go back far enough and you will find a horse thief somewhere in the line. There was nothing in this tree to definitely tie our Mary Pamplin to this family but it is a good lead. Similar info on Ancestry entered by Kristi Taylor.
The spelling I had was Pamplin this is also how Chris spelled his last name. Close enough. It appears name was spelled both ways in the Pamphlin books.
I will check the Tennessee Geneological Society re availability of the Pamplin books. It may be some time as my wife is ill.
Let me know if you find anything. Jim
