Perhaps Herrington is a common alternate spelling for this family?
Yes, I have seen the alternate spelling too.  I think it depended upon who was the person doing the writing.  We believe they were originially from Ireland and ended up in the USA by entering Canada, and gradually many of them moving.  They were quite close to Detroit and had family there.  Thanks for creating the page and attaching the sources!  Jo W G
