Batson is part of my paternal grandmother's line. She was a Whitis, as the name Whitehurst became later. I have Richard Whitehurst and Margaret Nicholas parents of Simon Whithurst. Simon and Argent Cox parents of Batson Whithurst. Batson married,but I don't know who. I have Thomas born 1789 and died 1830 married to Elizabeth P? born 1791 died 1852. they married 1814/15. First child born 1816.I have Thomas as Batson's son. Now I wonder if he was Batson's brother instead.
