Herrin/Herren/Herring and Ricks of Laurens County, early 1800s

According to the book Laurens County Georgia Legal Records 1807 - 1832, Abraham Herren of Laurens County sold to Richard Ricks of Montgomery County a piece of land December 29, 1811, and the two men were brothers-in-law. Also mentioned in the book are Arthur Herrin and Adam Herrin. It also mentions Abraham Herring of Jefferson County and Arthur of Wilkinson County. I am assuming these are all Herring men, who are related in someway.
Can anyone tell me if this Abraham Herring is the brother of Elizabeth Herring who supposedly married Richard Ricks?
And are these 3 men the sons of Abraham Herring who was supposedly the father of Elizabeth? Also there is the marriage record of Richard Ricks and Nancy Evans, April 8, 1819. Is this Richard Ricks who was the father of Barbara Ricks Thigpen, or her brother?
Lot of other Ricks and Herring records.
Could use some help figuring out these families.
