Herring Daniel [Male] b. 1729 Bertie County, N.C. - d. 21 SEP 1797 Duplin Co. N.C.

Abstracts of Duplin County, NC Deeds, Book 1A, p. 8
p. 85. Daniel Herring to Stephen Herring, both of Duplin Co., 25 Oct 1783, for 110 pds. specie 3A on the NS of Goshen Swamp & on BS of Herring's Branch incl. a grist mill on it, the sd. Daniel Herring having had an order of the Court for the sd. mill Aug 1766. Wit: Arthur Herring, William O'Daniel, Alex (X) O'Daniel. Oct. Ct. 1784.

Herring Highlights II: Daniel's linkage as a son of Abraham Herring is based on interactions with his "brother" Abraham in Duplin County. They seemed to move together from Bertie County, and they were closely connected in deeds. A complicated Duplin County deed of 23 Dec 1794 suggests that Daniel and Abraham (then both dead) probably were brothers, links them to the Whitfield and O'Daniel families, and shows the families' interactions.
William & Elizabeth (Goodman) Whitfield had 10 children, among them, Sarah and Charity, had patented 300 acres on Goshen Swamp near Herring's Mill Branch. At one time or another both Daniel & Abraham had held deeds to this property, conveyed by William Whitfield. Abraham conveyed the land to Daniel Herring who, in turn, conveyed it to Owen O'Daniel, the son of Frederick and Charity (Whitfield) O'Daniel. In 1794, Owen O'Daniel married a Charity Herring on 16 June 1781.
For years books have indicated after the death of Sarah (Whitfield) Herring, Daniel married widowed sister Charity (Whitfield) O'Daniel, and by her had sons Benjamin & Whitfield Herring. Horace Fussell, Jr. a descendant of Daniel, found this to be false. Charity's husband Frederick O'Daniel died between 1761 and 1773, and Charity remained a widow until after 1780. By then both Benjamin and Whitfield Herring were adults.
The mill branch mentioned in the deed above figured in an earlier deed. On 25 Oct 1783, Daniel Herring sold 3 acres, including the grist mill, to his son Stephen for 110 L. Samuel had operated the grist mill since 1766. Daniel is in the patriot index as a soldier in the Revolutionary War.

Herring Abraham [Male] b. 1682 Virginia - d. 1744 North Carolina

Herring Highliths II: A Williams family genealogy indicates Anthony Herring, brother of Samuel, married Mary Williams (listed as Mary Herring in John Williams' will of 1745 in Bertie County, NC). An Isle of Wight Co, VA deed of 1724 lists Bridget as the wife of Anthony Herring, and so she was when they sold their VA land on 22 Nov 1740, the same in 1742 when Anthony came to North Carolina. This researcher, among others, believes Mary Williams married Abraham Herring.
Abraham probably left the Isle of Wight County between 1718 and 1724. The Herrings in 1718 bought 150 acres from Benjamin Joyner on Blackwater Swamp and in 1724, "brother" Anthony sold this parcel where Abraham Herring lived to John Little. Abraham did not surface in Bertie County, NC until 12 years after that sale, 1736, when "brother" John sold him 380 acres on Bear Swamp for 100 L. Three years later Abraham Herring sold this property.
As of the 1740s, most of Abraham's documented activities are in the Bucklesberry Swamp area, adjoining John Williams, et al. One Herring family researcher says that Abraham served as sheriff of Bertie County. Abraham had his stock mark registered ( a swallow fork in the left ear and a nick in the right ear) at the Bertie county court in Nov 1740. On his death, in an account supposedly dated 1744, John Holbrook was paid to cash for going to Neuse after debt that was due there to acquaint the heirs of his death...Note mentions, among others, Abraham Herring. However, in 1749 and Abraham Herring was listed in a deed selling land to Arnold Hopkins, & continued to be listed in Bertie County deeds until 1757, sometimes as a witness.
