Samuel Arrington's Estate

Illinois Probate Records, Gallatin Probate records, Volume 1:

15 May 1850
...value the goods, chattel, and personal estate of Samuel Arrington, dec.....

Samuel Arrington is a name that surfaced while researching my Greers and Bandys.  This message board entry at GenForum explains the connection:

Elizabeth [Bandy] married Aquilla Greer. Aquilla died abt 1783.... She married Dec 20, 1800; Samuel Arrington. By Apr 1802 inventory papers were filed on Samuel... .

My connected family line eventually moved to Gallatin County, Illinois.

Aquilla Greer, Jr. m. Elizabeth Bandy

Asa Greer m. Rebecca Neighbors

James Johnson m. Nancy Graves 
James D. Johnson m. Katie Rice

Katherine Johnson m. James H. Garrett
Living m. Richard N. Powers
Me [Cathy (Powers) Palm]

Was the Samuel Arrington in the Gallatin County Probate record above, related to the Samuel Arrington who died by 1802?  I do not know.

Was he the Samuel Arrington who married Martha Henry in Gallatin County, Illinois? Probably.
