Perry, I have also run into a stone wall on my Whitleys from Montgomery Co. NC. They were Thomas Whitley (b 1800 in that county) and wife, Susan____, born 1799. They moved to Randolph Co. Alabama sometime before 1832 and that's where I pick my line back up. Three of their sons were in the 42nd Alabama Infantry... John H., James and Sanford, who died a POW in Camp Douglas, Chicago. The other two survived the war and raised families. If you think there may be a connection, I will gladly share what I have.
