Therefore Herron did not pay, and Seigler sold his land. Lexington County records are not extant. This family appears to have resided in Orangeburgh Co. (present day Branchville?) whose records were burned by Sherman's men in 1865.

Were these two daughters of William Herron of Orangeburgh County?

(1) Margaret Herron, dau. of Wm. H. Herron,marr. 1853 Darius L. Stuckey(SC Equity p88) (if 21 when married, then born c1832)

(2) Eliza Herron, daughter Wm. H. Herron, married 1853 Jonathan Wright (SC Equity p100) (if 21 when married, then born c1832)


Disconnected Early Herron Records

There were many early Herrons in the southeast, at least one documented from Germany, several from Ireland.  The Branchville (Orangeburgh Co.) Herrons married into the Allendale Canty family.

1774 James Herron. Perhaps the earliest Herron in Georgia left a Will (Abstracts of Colonial Wills of the State of Georgia 1733-1777, published by The Reprint Company, Spartanburg, SC, page 67) James Herron, St. Pauls Parish, planter. Wife: Anne Martilina Herron, entire estate, real and personal. At her death the entire estate to Daughter, Elizabeth. My estate was purchased of Richard Womack. To wife, one-fourth of the profits of a sum of money I daily expect to receive from Germany. Daughter: Elizabeth one-fourth of the money from Germany. Anne Tinley, one-fourth of the money from Germany, one black mare and mare colt. Mary Smith, my wife's daughter, one-fourth of the money from Germany, one bay mare with a horse colt. Father: John Herron, residing in Ireland, 10 pounds Sterling for the rest of his life. Sisters: Mary Herron and Elizabeth Chambers, 10 pounds Sterling each, yearly. Cousin Joseph Caughran, all my wearing apparel. Exors: Robert Rae, James Rae, George Whitefield. Mentions Aunt Tennet Rae of Ireland. D: 20 Aug. 1771 P (by oath of Robert Rae): 21 June 1774. R: n.d. Document attached in which Edward Barnard, Thomas Waters, and John Daniel Hammerer are empowered to administer the oath of exor to James Rae. Dated 21 June 1774 and 6 Aug. 1774. While this man obviously left no male line, his presence demonstrates Germans named Herron in the area before the Revolutionary War who clearly communicated back to the home country.

The family tree is (note Anne Tinley is left a full share, probably a married daughter, but not so stated in the will):

_______Herron

1) Tennet Herron married a Rae residing in Ireland 1771

2) John Herron died >1774 residing Ireland in 1771

3) James Herron died c1774 left will in GA, married Anne Martilina, probably her second marriage as he mentions daughter and my wife's daughter.

There is an indexed record for one Harry Lester Herron in the General Docket Volume 3 (1952-1957) page 301 which states " Estate of Harry Lester Herron", attorney John F. Hardin, 2/9/1956 petition for appointment of guardian. I assume this is the father of Harry Wayne Herron above, but I could not figure out where the court record for the estate of Harry Lester Herron resided.

It is not clear yet how any of these might be related to Charles Cumiller Herron
