Paul Sydenham Carrington
Birth: May 10, 1798
Charlotte County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jul. 9, 1866
Charlotte County
Virginia, USA

Paul S. Carrington, son of Paul Carrington Jr. and Mildred H. Coles Carrington of "Sylvan Hill" was married to Emma Catherine Cabell 5/9/1826 in Richmond. She was the daughter of Gov. William H. Cabell & Agnes Belle Gamble. He and his wife first moved to Staunton where he practiced law but in 1828 he & Emma moved to a cottage on his inherited land and built "Ridgeway". He used many local materials to construct the original Georgian style brick "big house" which was completed in 1829. They had eight children to include six sons, all of whom served in the Confederate Army. In addition to the service of the sons, they supported the war effort through the purchase of bonds and the supply of material and labor. Paul was spared the specter of a raid or destruction of his home from Grant's and Sherman's pincer operation by the Appomattox surrender. Emma and her daughter, Adeline Mayo Carrington, worked to retain the 1174 acre "Ridgeway" after the death of Paul and managed it up until Emma's 1887 death.
