Robert, I wonder if anyone knows the real truth.I'm still as confused as I've always been.
John Whitehurst left a will dated Jan. 1720 in which he names his wife Elizabeth, sons Gideon & Enoch, & daughter Mary.He says his wife is with child - this is the John born after the death of his father.He married Sarah Sharwood.
Now, John Carraway in his will dated 25 Jan. 1727 names his 3 daughters:Ann Whitehurst, Elizabeth Whitehurst, & Dinah Horsington.
To confuse the matter, John Carraway signed a deed of gift 2 Oct. 1717, to "my son-in-law John Whitehurst & my daughter Ann his now wife".
So, are we dealing with 2 different John Whitehursts here?Or what?
