Re: Proof they are brothers
Zachariah Wharton had abrother, Samuel, but not the Samuel with whom you are trying to connect him. Zachariah's brother Samuel married Letitia Hutcherson and they settled in VA, as did Zachariah. Zach and Sam were at the battle of Yorktown when Cornwallace surrendered. Sam was badly wounded there and Zach helped nurse him back to health. Ancestry trees tend to show their parents as either Zachary and Sally Young Wharton or George and Elizabeth Alsop Wharton. Ancestry trees tend to feed of one another so I don't trust them. I've yet to see convincing proof of whom their parents were. I believe that the George and Elizabeth, above, were their grandparents, but I can't prove that.
