I am just beginning to research the Whitehurst family from the Currituck County, NC area. I have very little info beyond the family of Peter Whitehurst and Martha Berry Whitehurst. Their son James Berry Whitehurst married Lucy Ann Staples; both are my great grandparents.
Additionally, my paternal side of the family ties into the Whitehurst clan, but I have been unable to make the connection. Lucy Ann Staples was the first cousin of Sarah Ann Fanshaw (my paternal great-grandmother), daughter of Samuel Dozier Fanshaw and Annie Elizabeth Whitehurst Fanshaw.
