I have hit the brick wall with my Whitehead family.So many of them bear the same first name that it is hard to figure out who belongs to whom. I have a James Whitehead born born before 1774. and was in Edgefield S.C. by 1792.He died between Nov 1819 and Jul 1820 leaving sons; Mathew, John; daughters Mary and Sophia; wife Sally Melton. I don't know the relationship but he is tied in somehow with Thomas, and Charles - maybe a brother? Most of my info is hearsay from other web pages and I am unable to prove any of it.He may be the brother of Jacob b 1774 Edgefield; who lived in GA then back to SC then on to Henry Co. AL> I am trying to find a connection for them to Thomas & Lucy Whitehead. Sorry, I can't help you more.I was hoping you might have more info on James linking him with my Jacob.
