JAMES MADISON5 'MATT' HERRINGTON (Samuel S.4, William3, Charles2, John1) son of Samuel S. Herrington and Mary, was born August 1824, and died August 08, 1908 in Ellisville, Jones Co Mississippi

He married MARTHA JANE BARLOW, 1852.  The daughter of Bryant Barlow and Nancy Herrington/Harrington, she was born 1831 in Mississippi, and died before 1900 in Jones Co Mississippi, burial in Jones Co Mississippi.  Nancy's parents are unknown, her maiden name has been verified by the death certificate of son, Darling Barlow.

From Roger Herrington: There are 2 unmarked graves next to Madison and Martha's son, James M. Herrington, believed to be that of Madison and Martha but, no proof has been found.

WYATT G. HERRINGTON, born February 24, 1854 in Ellisville, Jones Co Mississippi, and died May 03, 1930 in Livingston Parish, Louisiana.

He married MAHALA A. 'HALIE' WELBORNE, 1875, daughter of William and Sarah Welborne. She was born in 1860, and died November 29, 1936, Livingston Parish Louisiana
Police Jury Ward: 4th, Ward District No 32-5212. It was found in death indexes for the state of Louisiana at the Archives on Volume 14, page or certificate number 6504. According to his death certificate, Hallie, his wife signed Wyatt's name as WG Herington. He was 78 years of age. His trade was a farmer. He was sick and being treated by Dr. Riv or Biv Travis for Mucos Coletis (possibly his weight dropped to 114 lbs.) from April 28 to May 01, 1930. Wyatt died May 03, 1930.  Burial: Bankston Cemetery North Albany, Livingston Parish Louisiana
Notes for Mahala A. Welborne from Frances Westbrook:
Mahala A. Welborn death occured while she resided at 1322 Carondelet Street, Orleans Parish, New Orleans, Louisiana. She died at Charity Hospital, for New Orleans was the biggest and best hospital. Cause of her death was cerebral thrombosis, and congestive heart failure, attending physician was Dr. J. M. Batchelor, MD, Coroner was Dr. C.G. Cole. A. Marks was the undertaker, and possible funeral directors were P. Henry Lanauze and W. J. Prudhomme. An interesting note is that Mahala's death certificate is listed like this:
Hallie Welborn Herrington, widow of Wir Harrington and the daughter of Turner Welborn, a native of Mississippi. Her death certificate was found in the state indexes in the Louisiana Archives, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in Volume 209, page 625, November 29, 1936. She was born in 1860.  Burial: Bankston Cemetery, North Albany Livingston Parish Louisiana
