Ann, your John Whitsett (will probated in 1845) is the first entry of the Chart # 02A, "John & Lucy Ramsey Whitsett", posted by Kathy Whitsett as GenForum Message No. 45 on 2/22/1999. John was the son of Samuel Varner Whitsett. There have been many followups. I don't know your John W, Whitsett, but I'm sure that Kathy does.
