I have in hand 15 pages of “FAMILY TRACES” by R. David Grooms and Kathy H. Grooms.Many Grooms families related to Arrington's.
Marie Davidson, in Idaho sent this to me by mail.I was interested in the Arrington Family section demonstrating origination of Haleran (Hal) Arrington.
I am about to publish my genealogy book called “ARRINGTON HISTORY A UN SANITIZED BOOK”.Seek permission to include this article’s text in my book.Article demonstrate one of four Arrington Surnames started about 1600-1700 that appear to not be blood related.
My primary tree William Arrington, Isle of Wight, Va. Origin.So, I am not blood related to this Haleran Arrington.
In my book I attempt to define how Arrington Surname originated, and from what locality.Many of today’s Genealogy Researchers do not know this and attempt to make blood connection with neighboring Arrington’s that are not related, but researcher does not know this.
Would appreciate a reply.
