Death: Jul. 17, 1866

Dr. Carrington was probably named for his uncle who had just passed away in 1829. He was educated at the Univ. of Virginia but chose to practice in New York until the outbreak of war when he offered his services to Virginia & the Confederacy. He was appointed surgeon & inspector of hospitals to the 5th Virginia Volunteers on 5/16/1861. In July he was transferred to the 7th Virginia Inf. of the Confederate forces. On Oct 1, 1862 he became Inspector of Hospitals under Gen. Gustavus Smith. By March 1863 he was Inspector of all Richmond hopsitals and in Sept. 1864 he was made medical director of all of Virginia's hospitals. The war completely wore him out and broken in health he returned to "Ridgeway" where he died a few days after his father on the 17 of July.

He was married to Mildred Coles Carrington, daughter of Isaac Coles and Sarah Read Carrington of "Sylvan Hill" on 10/21/1863 and had the following children: William A. Carrington (died as an infant), Edgar Wirt Carrington.
