I am trying to locate as many descedants as possible of Amanda Whitehurst and Isiah "Bratch" Blackwood.
Amanda and Sidney Tapley Whitehurst were brother and sister. They were the children of Eli Whitehurst, who died at Alton, Ill. Military Prison in l863. Amanda and Isiah moved to Texas and I suspect Eli's widow, Emmaline went also.
Sidney Tapley Whitehurst was my husband's great grandfather.
Can you e-mail me at DJoh485660@aol.com?I have researched the Whitehurst going on 23 years, but just found out last year what happened to the daughters of Eli Whitehurst. Before then, I kept hitting a brick wall.
