Peter Whitson is my G-G-Grandfather. He is buried about a mile from the family farm in Flat Rock, Il. It is right outside of Birds. He was born June 27, 1818. His brother John and his son Hiram are also buried in the same cemetery. The old log cabin the family lived in was North of the farmstead that exists and we still have some of the farmland that he originally settled.I have checked for years and that is all I have been able to come up with on Peter other than he was a carpenter.
