Code Dean Whitfield was my Grandfather. He was born in Tishomingo County, Mississippi in 1897. His father was J.T. Whitfield who had brothers named "Tink" and Dick Whitfield. Dick moved to Texas and lived out his life there.
They were traced back to a Joel Whitfield born in 1750 from either North or South Carolina. I have lost all names, places & dates between Joel and Code (except for the ones mentioned above).
