Betty... I am interested in the Louise you show as the wife of John R. Whisenant. On the 1880 census, John R. is married to a Louisa who was born about 1853 and born in GA. Her father was born in VA and her mother in NC. This info matches that of Louisa Starks, daughter of Thomas and Catherine Starks of Gilmer County, GA. The Louisa I am hunting was also the sister to Lewis F. Starks who married Nancy L. Whisenant, daughter of John Calloway & Kemley Carver Whisenant. Can you tell me where you got the info on Louisa? It would save me a lot of agony in researching her if you've already got that info.
In case you are interested, here's some more Whisenant info.
John Calloway and Kemley Carver Whisenant settled in Gilmer County, Ga. John C. was a hatter (hat maker).Kemley died in April 22, 1897 and is buried on Whisenant Mountain in Gilmer County. John C. & Kemley's children, Sarah Ann Whisenant (April 1864--December 1886) and William H. Whisenant (May 31, 1868--October 15, 1889) are also buried on Whisenant Mountain in the small cemetery there.There are several other stones, rocks or markers but only one other is legible and it is fairly new.
John Calloway Whisenant married Martha A. Davis on February 09, 1906 in Gilmer County. I don't think it was a marriage of great love since he was living with his daughter and son-in-law, Lewis Davenport in 1900. Martha was living elsewhere.
John Calloway Whisenant died January 09, 1911. So far, I haven't found his grave. Nor have I found anyone who seems to know. Am still searching.
