Allen, I am originally from Wilmington,NC where my father George William Applewhite Sr. still resides. He was also born in Wilmington in 1946, with two sisters Mary and Betty. His father George Washington Applewhite (a deaf-mute) was from Acme-Delco,NC born in 1917, died in 1995. He is survived by a sister Maxine Applewhite who now resides in Connecticut. My great-grandfather, William Henry Applewhite resided in Acme-Delco until his death in 1976. I'm not sure where he originated from, but I believe it may have been Virginia or West Virginia. That is as far as I know.
