Re: Yarrington in VA

Greg - Another possible connection. Another marriage record my aunt found was:       "Marriage Records 1649-1840 Cumberland County, Virginia
       Aurilla Yarrington m. Henry Page 19 Dec 1827; Surety: Albert Yarrington
       dau. of Alfred Yarrington, who consents                                   Page 100

What is interesting to me is that the father is Alfred Yarrington, the same name as my gg grandfather. I have not been able to determine who Arana/Arianna Yarrington's husband was. She appears as head of household in 1810 in Essex co. VA, and 1820 & 1830 in Cumberland Co. The 1820 census lists 2 females between 10-16 and one between 16 and 26. The boys are listed as 1 between 0-10, 1 between 10-16, & 1 between 16-18 (my gg grandfather, Alfred, perhaps).

Just some possibilities....

As far as the Spears side of the family is concerned, the only clue I have is the Powhatan place of marriage between Alfred & Elizabeth, and a mention that Elizabeth's mother's name is Sarah.

Both of my parents and I were born in Richmond, VA and I will be much interested in what you find when you visit.

Best regards,
