I'm not sure how much you have discovered since your 8-29-00 post but through the internet you can find a long line to the Rev. James Applewhite. He was a multiple great uncle to me and brother of my direct ancestor Woodard A. Applewhite. The son of John Applewhite, Jr. (will on file in the Holmes Co. courthouse). I was actually at the cemetery today and noted several other Applewhites likely in his line. I don't have much info outside of Leonidas who died at age 18 and possibly a child or two.
