Every time it seems like I am getting close to finding out about my heritage, the person I am exchanging emails with decides to stop contacting me, so I am trying again.
Clarace (1930 Census spelling) or Clairsia (1900 Census spelling) (born 1871) and William William (born 1866) are my great-grandparents.As far as I can tell, both were born in Alabama, with Clarace (Clairsia) being the daughter of the founder of the town they were married in, Castleberry, Alabama.I have been told that there was some sort of feud that drove the Castleberry and Whittle families apart, but I don't know what the feud might have been about.
I believe (have been told) that Clarace (Clairsia) was White, and I believe (was told) that William was Mulatto, as I know my grandfather is listed as Mulatto, although he and his siblings as well as his parents are listed as Black and Mulatto, depending on what Census is looked at.
My question is this.Is there anyone else from this line, or is there a way for me to link these Whittle's to other Whittle lines listed on this site?Does anyone have a connection to these Whittle's and therefore to me?
Any information that can be/is provided, would be greatly appreciated.Please understand that I am not looking to strike up a friendship, or visit anyone, I am just looking to put together a legacy I can pass on to my daughter.
