Judge William Beck Ocheltree from the State of Texas and his son, Thomas Peck, from the State of Texas were both well educated and political men.They were from Carolina.
Judge Ocheltree moved up to Texas but was on the scene with his son Tom, in Carolina prior to the Civil War.
One sat on the Republic of Texas at Texas on the Brazos.Tom went to New York and Europe to delegate with our cousins and had a setting with the King or Queen, ...
Tom was a newspaper man and wrote editorals for the London Times, I believe, he then returned to the states and wrote for the New York City paper, ...I can post a link if you all would like.
Tom and his father, William were sons or grandsons to the Lord Ochiltree from Jura to Carolina,.As I posted, David came to Jamaica in 1685.What would have kept him from traveling from Jamaica to the Carolinas.
There was a third or fourth generation Ochiltree, Mary Custer.Ever who has the Railey book would have to look.It is the family that relocated to Ks and Iowa after the Civil War.She was not George Custer's wife. A brother, perhaps.There are a lot of Whitmers listed in the Railey book that live here in the part of Kansas that I am in.
Like y'all say, we have to keep on looking down all avenues of information and try to make a link.
