It's very unlikely that there's any connection between the YARRINGTONs who were early in New England and those who were early in Virginia, except possibly back in England. The Mason-Dixon Line might as well have been the Great Wall of China because you seldom find migration across it. The cultural, political, and *genealogical* chasm separating the North and South was one of the reasons for the Civil War.
