Hi Linda, Actually, have not spent too much time on the surname. CANNOT help, tho, but wonder of the HARRINGTON surname. Mike HARRINGTON, has been researching the WHEELDON/WHILDEN family of SC for years----------the WHEELDON/WHILDEN family, I believe, were the owners of my WEELDON ggrands in Christ Christ and Sumter, SC. The WHILDEN family are descendants of the GABRIEL WHELDON family of the MAYFLOWER. Have been trying to figure ANY of it out for 14yrs., Linda. ?????? Warm regards, carol.
