Event Date Place Description Sources
Marriage before 1846 Arkwright, Chautauqua, NY    

Some coincidences led me to descendants of Hiram, and show he is a son of Jabez and Lydia Harrington -
1850 Arkwright: ( a few hh's from sister Mary Harrington Potter)
H Harrington 32
Viola Harrington 24
Susan A Harrington 4
Abigail Harrington 2 (note - male, could be Abijah or Abigial)
E Burgy 22
1860 Wayne, Erie Co, PA (Same as Harriet and Andrew Smith in 1850)
Viola Harrington 34
Susan Harrington 15
Abigail E Harrington 12 (Hial? again, male)
Laura Harrington 7
===> nearby, a "Hial Harrington" laborer, but wrong age at 20.

1) very close to where Harriet lived.
2) Viola was Harriet's daughter
3) Susan was Harriet's sister
4) Both moved from Arkwright to Wayne within a few years of each other. (Laura born in NY -> moved to PA after 1853)

Hiram is mentoned in Harriet's journal.
