A descendant of Bartholomew Herrington through his son John has recently
(21 Jan. 2011) DNA tested. He has been found to be a 36/37 match with the
modal of Lineage I at the Harrington DNA Project where he is H-66.
His one mutation is a 19 on marker 576 compared to the Lineage I modal of 18.
He is the only person tested to date of Lineage I with this mutation. It is hoped
that descendants of Bartholomew through sons other than John will DNA test
to see if they also have this mutation, or if it occurred in the generations
from John to the person tested. If this is found in the lines of other sons
of Bartholomew, it may aid in determining those lines to which Bartholomew
may be closely related.
One such line of interest was that of Cornelius HERRINGTON of Baltimore Co., MD
who had a son Isaac HERRINGTON who died about 1774 in York Co., PA. York County
was formed from Lancaster County where Bartholomew was allegedly born, and it was
interesting that Bartholomew named his oldest son Isaac and a daughter Jane. A
descendant of Cornelius has DNA tested (H-71) and does not match Bartholomew. The
Cornelius descendant does not match any other HERRINGTON at present. They do have
a 35/37 match with the surname CRESAP, which also has connections to York County.
It is possible that there was a non-paternal event in the lineage of the Cornelius
descendant. Until they have matches with other HERRINGTONs, or a descendant from
a different son of Cornelius matches them, the question as to whether Bartholomew
may be from this line remains unanswered.
None of Bartholomew's matches at this point appear to be closely related to
him, but there are several interesting things to note about Lineage I. Several
matches came from County Cork, Ireland in the 1800s, which would support the
tradition that Bartholomew's ancestry was Irish. An interesting website gives
details on the early origin of Clan Harrington in the Beara Peninsula,
which is where matches with Bartholomew are found.
Batholomew HERRINGTON was born about 1740 and died 28 Sep. 1821, in the
82nd year of his age.1 Although there are some who claim his father was
an Abraham HERRINGTON, those claims should be regarded with suspicion.
The wife of Bartholomew HERRINGTON was Elizabeth -?- as proved by St. Louis
Co., MO deeds where on 10 June 1815 "Bartholomew HERRINGTON and wife
Elizabeth" sold land.2 Elizabeth also made depositions regarding her
"husband Bartholumy HERRINGTON" in 1837 in the Revolutionary War pension
claim of Wiliam DRENEN (DRENNEN).3 A modern inscription placed around
the original headstone states she died 16 March 1817 in her 90th year.
People who have viewed the original headstone in person state that is actually
says 1847, not 1817. Note that on the picture of her original stone, it appears
to be 1847, not 1817, and that the spacing would fit a "4," but would be too large
for a "1."4
There are also claims that Bartholomew HERRINGTON had a first name Joseph.
The source of this is Louis HOUCK's A History of Missouri, with his information
on early settlers taken from land records.5 No original records which he used
have been found to name a "Joseph Bartholomew HERRINGTON." In all likelihood
he confused records in his notes while preparing the book. Bartholomew had
no first name Joseph.
The first record of Bartholomew was in 1777 when as Bartholomew HETHERINGTON
he appeared as a private in Captain Mitchell's Company.6 Hugh MITCHELL was
Captain of the 3rd Company of James SMITH's 3rd Battalion of Westmoreland Co., PA.7
At some point he was taken a prisoner of war, and held on the prison ship "Old Jersey"
in Wallabout Bay, Brooklyn, New York, where he was booked as Bartholomew HARRINGTON.88
After 1783,8 but by 1785 he moved to Fayette Co., KY where he signed a petition
for the formation of what became Bourbon County.9 He also signed a petition
from Bourbon Co., in July 1788 requesting a tobacco inspection station be established
on the South Fork of the Licking Creek at the Confluence of Stoner and Hinksons Forks
of said Creek near Isaac Ruddles Mill.10 The division of lands of John Hinkson, deceased,
mentioned a boundary running “up the creek to a spring coming out of under the bank near
to the cabbin which Bartholomew Harrington Built.”11
He appeared in Bourbon County tax lists in 1788, 1791 and 1792,12 Harrison County13
from 1794-1796 and Campbell County in 1797 and 1798.14
On 3 June 1798 he applied for 500 arpents (425.5 acres) of land in what would become
Missouri, that was granted 8 June 1799.15

17. Evidence that Bartholomew Herrington's daughter Mary is identical to Mary
who married John Wilson is:
a) 1850 Jefferson Co., MO census p. 451, Mary Wilson was age 71, and born in
PA. The age is consistent with the ages of Bartholomew's other children, and
in #16 as the first (eldest?) daughter listed. Bartholomew Herrington about
1779 lived in PA.
b) See #15. After 1797 Spanish Land Grants were given on the basis of 200
arpents for the claimant, 50 for each child, and 20 for each slave. Of Bartholomew's
8 children, Joshua was not yet born, so one of the other daughters had either
died or was married. John Wilson and wife Mary were married before arriving in
what became MO. See "c".
c) John Wilson and wife Mary's first two sons were Bartholomew H. Wilson born in
KY about 1798 and Samuel H. Wilson. They would have been named for the
paternal grandfather Bartholomew Herrington, and the maternal grandfather,
Samuel Wilson. [Bartholomew H. Wilson died about 1838. (Jefferson Co., MO
Probate Record "1834-1838, 1836-1845?" book, p. 34, FHL microfilm
0,966,102) His daughter Evaline/Emiline in 1880 stated listed that her father
was born in KY.-(1880 Jefferson Co., MO census, p. 177C.)]
d) John Wilson and wife Mary named a son Isaac, a name not known to appear
among the Wilson family prior to that.

Joshua Herrington was then examined, who stated that he was sixty-four years old,
and that John Herrington was his father; that his father came to Missouri in 1799;
that belived at a place near Pevely, some five or six miles south of the Dorian
claim; that in 1811 John Herrington went to Arkansas; never lived on the land
in controversy; that the witness, who was his son, never heard from his father,
or any of the family, or from any one else, that his father ever resided on the
land in controversy; that he was born at a place, as he heard, south of the
Dorian claim; that he understood from his father that he staid seven or eight
years in Arkansas when he went there in 1811. This witness stated that he never
knew of any John Herrington except his father. When John Herrington came back
here he remained in this (Jefferson) county till his death in March, 1864. From
1822 he lived sixteen or seventeen miles from the Dorian survey till his death..
That Jonathan Hillebran married his father's sister, and attended to his
father's business when the latter went to Arkansas; that Hillebran was a man of
some business tact, and could read and write, but his father could not write his
name; that Hillebran died in Jefferson county at a very advanced age.
