I descended from Dr. John Whelchel & Abigail Davis. I have read "Through the Mists of Time", compliments of Kennett, and also saw reference to Dr. Samuel Whelchel. Do you have info. regarding my Dr. John? I am from the SC line of Welchels(Whelchels). I am also related to the Keiths. I read your article on Rachel Jo and it took my a while to figure out who was who and how! My grandmother used to attend family reunions at Francis, Sr's old home site and according to her, there was a family tree carved on the side of the old house. My g'g'grandfather Samuel also discovered a gold nugget in Gaffney which started a gold rush to the area.
