The records I have on John Whelchel born 12/2/1811 (btw, he was a twin brother of my gggrandfather) sez:
"John, born 12/2/1811 in SC, died 06/26/1892
married(1st): 09/18/1834 Elvina Smith; married(2nd) before 1850 Amanda Bates; married(3rd): 12/14/1871 Mary Ann Pierce
Father of John:John "The Good Fellow" Whelchel
m: (1st) Mary Gilkie - one child Elizabeth
m: (2nd) Sarah House around 1806
Both John and Davis were twins.The two created the "Whelchel District Militia - District 57, Hall Co, GA"
after they settled on Little River in 1832."
That is the closest "John" Whelchel in the records I have that date exactly to 1811 birthdate.
