I have a William Whitworth who shows up in land records in Bedford County, TN in association with the Isaac Whitworth and Jacob Whitworth that I am researching. This may be the same William Whitworth who is on the 1820 census of Rutherford County, TN. Is anyone else researching these Whitworths?
This is the record in question:
