Addington, Volume II, U. S. A. and England, by Hugh M. Addington, Franklin Printing Company, Kingsport, TN, 1960.
This book is a valiant attempt at documenting Addington families with an emphasis
descendants of Henry and Sarah Addington of South Carolina. However it has many errors that
need to be corrected for the record. You can not fault the author for his efforts but this was
written before inexpensive copying, microfilming, computer files and other wide spread forms of
communication have improved our ability to do genealogical research. The below corrections
are believed to be supported by factual data known and obtained by the reviewer. Comments
and further corrections are appreciated (email: email@example.com)
A copy of the old family bible quoted in line 1 shows the Bible was purchased in 1877 by John
L. Addington, a great grandson of Henry Addington and the family data were entered at that
date or later. The Bible entry says Henry married Elizabeth Buson. This apparently is the only
time that Henry's wife was referred to as Elizabeth rather than Sarah and given the late date of
the record, it is probably incorrect.

There is a record of Henry Addington renting a farm in Loudoun County, Virginia in 1765 and
transferring the lease in 1767 so I think Henry and his family first moved to Virginia and then
moved to SC between 1767 and 1772 (not in 1755).
The reference in Henry's will referring to putting money to interest is directed to a grandson
Henry, the son of James. Son Henry is mentioned in the will but little else is known about him.

William Addington (A-1-1) bought the mill that Macalyn Lewellen had built about 1819.
William owned it by about 1830 and a latter owner was named Whipple and that is where the
name "Whipple Mill" came from.
Alcie could be a typo and really be Alice.
Daughter Alice Garrett is evidently deceased by 1833 when John mentions her children in his
will. It is not clear whether the Garrett family moved north or stayed in SC.
Joseph Addington (A-1-3) and his first wife Rachel Randel had three sons named John Randel
Addington (b.1800), William Randel Addington (b.1802), and Joseph Randel Addington (b.
1804). I believe John Randel Addington died sometime between 1815 and 1830 because of no
further references to him. William Randel and Joseph Randel Addington both have many
list of Joseph Addington (A-1-3) and his 2nd wife Celia Townsend should also include sons
Benjamin (b. 1824) and David (b. 1828)
2nd John (A-1-4), born 1777 moved north with his father in 1806 and had a large family.
3rd Thomas (A-1-5) is a son of John and Elizabeth (Heaton) Addington
5th through 11th on pages 3 - 6 are a continuation of the children of Thomas above and are
grandchildren of John and Elizabeth (Heaton) Addington.
2nd paragraph Rev. George Elvin Addington's sons George Elvert Addington and Joseph
Harold Addington were killed in a train accident in 1931 and are buried near their parents in
New Dayton/Bear Creek Cemetery.
John Addington (A-1) did not die in 1819 at Chester and is not buried in the old Ridgeville
Cemetery. John Addington was living with his youngest son James according to the 1820 and
1830 census. John's will was recorded in Wayne County in August 1833. There is a John
Addington, grandson of John Addington Sr., who is buried in the Ridgeville Cemetery with a
gravestone date of 1849. Several researchers believe that this gravestone was misread as 1819
and recorded as that of John Addington, Sr. There also seems to be some question about
whether John Addington, Sr. served in the Revolutionary War. He is listed in the DAR
reference but many researchers feel that the book is in error.
The 1910 reunion pamphlet mentioned can be seen on another webpage at this site.
Mary Addington married Thomas Roberts on 26 Sep 1801 is South Carolina. Thomas died in
1831 in Wayne County, Indiana and Mary died on 12 Mar 1866 in Hancock County, Indiana
Sarah Addington married Phineas Roberts on 6 Nov 1806 and died 26 Aug 1814 in Wayne
Elizabeth died on 8 Mar 1841 in Wayne County, Indiana.
James was the 7th child of John and Elizabeth (Heaton) Addington but John had 3 children by
his first wife Mary Lamb.
3rd paragraph The town of "Addington" OK was founded by the sons of Jarrett Addington
(A-2-10-1) who was born in SC in 1817. They later moved to TX and then later founded the
town of Addington in OK.
One of the sons, Thomas L. Addington, did move to OK but did not live in the town of
Addington. He is found in the 1910 and 1920 census of Canadian County, OK
4th paragraph The father "James" (A-1-9) died in October 1860 in Anderson Co., Kansas
according to the 1860 mortality census. John L. Addington (A-1-9-1) died on 1 Mar 1878 in
Hardin Co., Kansas. Nancy Fansher Addington died 9 Mar 1878 in Hardin Co. according to one
It is uncertain what the Addington connection is with Juanita Violet Kolp. The 1920 census lists a John N Kolp family with wife Bertha (age 39) and daughter Janeta (age 9). Bertha is believed to be the daughter of Roscoe Dodd. The 1870 census lists a William (age 41) Dodd family with wife Melvina (age 34) and son Roscoe (age 11). The 1860 census lists a William (age 31) Dodd family with wife Hannah (age 29) and son Roscoe (age 1). This Hannah may be Hannah Addington, b. 1841, daughter of (A-1-3-3) Joseph Randell Addington and his wife Mary Barker. That would make Hannah (Addington) Dodd a great grandmother of Januita Violet Kolp.
Mary Addington, who married James C. Dodd, was born 6 Nov 1837, the daughter of James
and Susan (Kelly) Addington.
Thomas L. Addington is the son of James and Nancy (Lewellen) Addington
Elsworth Addington (A-1-9-5-5) is the son of Thomas Lewallyn and Margaret (Woodward)
Addington, who was a son of James Addington. (A-1-9)
Benjamin Addington (A-1-3-11, b.1824) is the son of Joseph and Celia (Townsend) Addington.
should be Joseph Day (not Addington) was the first teacher of . . . .
David Addington (A-1-3-12, b. 1828) is the son of Joseph and Celia (Townsend) Addington.
The reference to some descendants living in St. Louis, MO refers to the Vern Addington family
who lived in St. Louis from 1959-1961, about the time that this book was pulished.
Lewis Addington (A-1-1-6-3, b. 1839) is the son of William and Mary (White) Addington, who
was the son of William Addington, who was the son of John and Mary (Lamb) Addington.
This William Addington (A-1-1) is the first son of John (A-1) and Mary (Lamb) Addington and
the grandson of Henry and Sarah (Burson) Addington. He is not the second son of Henry and
The children of William were Joshua (or Joseph), Bishop, Patsy, John, Jacob, William, Elsie,
Elizabeth, Joab. Jacob is only listed in this book and is not found in any other records so his
name may be a mistake.
