Seeking any information on the family seen below. Birthplaces of children seem to indicate the move to IN from OH was made ~1850-51. Their children went various directions, at least 3 to Indian Territory, at least 1 to CA, at least 1 to IL, and at least 2 to NE. There were various Harringtons and Huffmans/Hoffmans in Clark and surrounding counties at the time of the couple's marriage... does anybody have a clue to which of those families either of these individuals may belong?

Other children are known per a family bible record that a relative of mine received from a Hitchcock whose grandmother Maude Kirkpatrick gave a family Bible and a box of pictures. In the Bible was a series of small pages that had been ripped out of the order section of a seed catalog. She isn't sure who wrote the names & dates. The writing is really curly & old-fashioned, so some of it was hard for her to read:

Mary Harrington 9/28/1816
David Harrington 10/19/1839
