Estate of Reverend Ashel HARRINGTON, of New Haven, Oswego, NY  
Estate of Reverend Ashel HARRINGTON, 
of New Haven, Oswego, NY 
5/04The following is a text copy of  a report made to Oswego County Surrogate’s Court concerning the estate of Reverend Ashel HARRINGTON, of New Haven, Oswego, NY. Ashel Harrington is my 4th great-grandfather. My proven line is: Jonathan > Daniel > Ashel > Newell Perry > Francis Leeland > Frederick William > Frank H. > George William > to me, William (Bill) Harrington Sr. I have information showing that Ashel’s parents were Daniel and Sarah (or Sally, Carpenter) Harrington. Ashel married Polly Patrick, daughter of James and Susanna (Burt) Patrick. This document proves that Davis Coe was Ashel’s son-in-law, husband of Sally Manervia Harrington.

I have just received copies of D.A.R. records that support Ashel’s ancestry. They are requests for D.A.R. membership filed by two daughters of Clayton Whitney Harrington. The applications were submitted in 1942 and show ancestry back to Daniel Harrington born abt. 1765 at Exeter, RI. These ladies submitted notarized copies of a Harrington Family Bible with their applications. The D.A.R. assigned the numbers: 334635 and 334636 to these applications. Copies of all documentation may be requested from the D.A.R. in Washington, D. C.

The applications also show the ancestry of  Daniel Harrington’s wife, Sarah (or Sally) Carpenter. The request for membership was made on the basis of her grandfather’s service in the Revolutionary War. His name/title was: The Honorable Benjamin Carpenter Esq. He enlisted while living in Vermont. 

Your site has a wonderful church history of Vermillion that mentions Rev. Ashel. He was AKA Asel, and Asa. I am attaching Ashel and Polly's stone pics. Hers is in two pieces. Anyone interested in this line may contact me, at:  (, William (Bill) Harrington Sr.   Also check out "Families on the Move" for Newell P. HARRINGTON

**Note: This is another success story- within days after this went on line, Bill was contacted by a descendent of Rev. Ashel Harrington and they have since exchanged information.  More coming.
