Does anyone know of a connection between the Porter and Whitlock families in South Carolina in the late 1700's? My third great-grandfather was Lancelot (Lott) Whitlock and I have been searching for his father for over 20 years now. I good candidate is William Whitlock who was a friend and neighbor of Hancock and Landlot (Lancelot) Porter. Their names appear togather on deeds and other documents. I believe that this could be where Lancelot Whitlock got his name. He married Elizabeth Marion Kent abt. 1813 in Alabama, she was the daughter of John Bethel Kent and Elizabeth Marion (related to Francis Marion the Swamp Fox).
