I found William Arrington on the early pioneer list. I have been hunting for this name for a long time. My GG grandmother was Susan Arrington born in Tx in 1842. Our family has been looking for her parents for about 30 years. Seems in this age of technology, we may have some luck. We first found her and her brother William in the 1850 US census living with Samuel and Matilda Eldridge in Shelby county. Is there any other information on William Arrington other than he was an early pioneer? Where did the original information come from? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
