Re: Origin o/t Virginia Whitehursts Debate
The main problem you will have were the number of William, John and Richard Whitehursts of this period in England.

Trentham, Cheadle and Dilhorne Parish records contain the most Whitehurst records of the period but many other records for other parish's from this period no longer exist.
Where we might "win" is if we can establish that a whole family immigrated together. Then we maight be able to match up some US burial records with baptsim records in Staffordshire.
Most people on the US side have id the Trentham branch as the one's who immigrated.
