Biography

Birth

Isaac Newton "Ike" Herrington was born on December 20, 1846, in Laurel, Jones County, Mississippi, to John A Herrington and Sarah Mathis. At the time of his birth, his father was 45 and his mother was 38. Isaac was his parents' tenth child and sixth son, out of a total of fifteen living children.

Early Life

The 1850 U.S. Federal Census, lists Isaac N. Herrington, age 6, as living with his parents in Harrison County, Mississippi. Ten years later, now listed as Isaac Herrinton, age 15, he, his mother, and his siblings were living in Jackson County, Mississippi, within the area identified as served by the Ocean Springs post office.

Civil War and Aftermath

Isaac Herrington, who would have been just short of his fifteenth birthday at the start of the war, served in the Confederate army during the American Civil War, along with his father and his older brothers. His grandson, Winston Lloyd, includes a story of what happened after the war in his autobiography: "After the Civil War my great grandfather and his older sons returned [to Mississippi] from their service in the Confederate Army and tried to resume their farming activities" and hired their former slaves to work the land. (Note This was not unusual. See the PBS Special Feature Slave to Sharecropper.) The story continues, however, that the freed slaves came from a meeting one night and reported that the carpetbaggers were coming to take the Herrington home and kill the family. The family escaped, several of the ex-slaves traveling with them, and on looking back from a hilltop were able to see the house in flames.[1]

Note Winston Lloyd's autobiography mentions Isaac Herrington's father as returning home after the Civil War; however, given his absence from the 1860 and subsequent U.S. Federal Censuses, as well as other documents placing his death in 1859, it seems likely that the autobiography is in error on this point.

After leaving Mississippi, the Herrington family moved to South Florida. The 1870 U.S. Federal Census places Isaac, his mother, and several siblings in Cedar Key, Levy, Florida.

Marriage

Isaac Herrington married Ezella Fleming Boykin on December 29, 1885, in Marianna, Jackson County, Florida.[2]

Family

Isaac and Ezella had three children:

Luther Eugene Born 27 September 1886 in Florida. Died of drowning due to a fishing accident, age 18, 4 July 1905 in Brent, Escambia, Florida.
Inez Minerva Born 20 July 1889 in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida. Died, age 96, 24 Jan 1986 in Santa Rosa County, Florida.
Isaac Newton, II Born 20 August 1894 in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida. Died, age 84, 20 June 1979 in Mobile, Mobile County, Alabama.

Property

Isaac Herrington owned property in Brent, Escambia County, Florida, which he purchased sometime in the late 1800s. There, in about 1910, he built a two-story, five-bedroom house for his family[3]. The house had no indoor plumbing or electricity.

On May 9, 2010, I took the following notes from a phone conversation with my father, the oft-mentioned Winston Lloyd, which echos information also included in his autobiograpy:

Isaac and Martin were farming and selling vegetables, which were delivered by horse. Then, Martin died and his daughter Laura went to a lawyer and sold her share of the 80 acre farm to the lawyer. The lawyer told Isaac that he was kicking Isaac and his family off the farm and taking it over. Papoo [Ezella Boykin, Isaac's wife], and Sissy [Inez Minerva Herrington, Isaac's daughter], convinced Isaac that Laura, and therefore the lawyer, was not entitled to the whole farm. The lawyer agreed and split the farm. The lawyer kept the half near Brent Lane, which was worth more than the other half, because it had the road. And, Isaac took the half (forty acres) that had the family residence on it.
Winston has a legal document, an abstract, which has details about this series of transactions.

Occupation

According to his obituary on Find A Grave, which cites the Thursday, January 9, 1913 issue of the Pensacola Journal, Isaac Herrington had been a member of the Pensacola police force and it was only upon his retirement that he took up farming. Wikipedia reports that all members of the Pensacola Police Department had to meet a set of standards which included the following: "Officers had to be able to read and write in English, never have been indicted and convicted of a crime, of physical health and vigor, of good moral character, and of unquestionable energy."

Death

Isaac Herrington died on January 8, 1913, in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, at the age of 66. He was buried in Clopton Cemetery, a small cemetery located next to the East Brent Baptist Church in Pensacola. I have visited the cemetery with family members and located Isaac's headstone. Winston Lloyd, in our May 9, 2010 phone conversation, described the location of the cemetery with respect to the family property in Brent: "Isaac and Martin were both buried in the Clopton Cemetery at the east end of the farm, which was adjacent to the Herrington family property. Now, I-110 separates the cemetery from the remainder of the farm."
