Rootsweb.com has a link on their Home Page of finding "U. S. Town/County name" for problems such as yours.
Go to www.rootsweb.com, scroll down on LEFT HAND SIDE COLUMN until you see in 2d BLOCK GROUP, US TOWN/COUNTY and click on link which takes you to another screen to enter the name of the town you want to find. You have the option of omitting the State to see other geographic places with the same name.
It is a very good 'tool' to use. THEN contact that Parish Historical Society or Parish (City)Seat (Louisiana has "Parishes" instead of Counties because of French rule under Napoleon Bonaparte).
I looked up Cravin and had no response to query so changed spelling to "Craven" and Vernon came up with town spelling of "Cravens", Vernon Parish, LA. Vernon Parish Seat is named Leesville, LA. Vernon Parish is located on the Louisiana/Texas state line with the Sabine River as the dividing boundary line.
There is a Texas website for finding old lost pioneer towns under "Texas Handbook on line" which may have Barrington listed, when it existed and County name? There are several topics to choose from including Who? Where? and What? Where might be the listing of all cities, towns and smaller road intersections of a municipality to follow up.
