Comments: Barbara: I very much enjoyed your site. I'm just getting into the geneolgy thing and was so happy to learn so much from just one site. I'm descended from John Carrington's line branching from John's son Abraham Carrington and wife Rebecca Johnson ---> Abraham's son David Carrington and wife Thankful Tolles ---> David's son Daniel Carrington and wife Rachel A. Dorman ---> Daniel's son Abram E. Carrington and wife Mary J. Patterson ---> Abram's son Hiram D. Carrington and wife Anna Voland --->Hiram's son Franklyn H. Carrington and wife Ann Sherwinsky [my grandparents]. I discovered a number of articles regarding John and Joane Carrington [parents of Dr. Peter] in the Connecticut State Library this past January - mostly witchraft and indian bartering references. However, I was unable to determine a date for their arrival from Europe. Any leads? Thanks again for all the info on your site.
