Anyone related to this family? I have several postings which includes info on the Whitfield family of Davidson and Williamson Co., TN on the Jefferson forum.
I am researching Lydia Jefferson Stovall whose family was living beside Thomas W. Whitfield in Cheatham Co., TN in the 1860 Census, see my other postings for this info.
This is info from a Chancery Court Case:
Whitfield, George W. - Died 1845
Father: Henry Whitfield Mother: Martha A. Whitfield
Grandchild: Martha A. Whitfield Grandparents: Wilkins Whitfield, Mrs. Lofton
Brothers & Sisters: Thomas W. Whitfield Henry W. Whitfield Mary E. Whitfield
CHANCERY COURT:William Spence, Admr. Vs Martha A. Whitfield
Other info: Henry Whitfield married Martha Ann Loftin Oct. 22, 1823 in Davidson Co., TN.
If you look at the 1860 Cheatham Co., TN Census you will find the B. F. Gilliam family, the Stovall Family, the Berry Family which includes Dr. Thomas W. Whitfield and his wife Sarah Berry daughter of John and Anise Berry of Davidson Co., TN.
The Gilliam family married into the Lofton family.
I need to know if Lydia Jefferson Stovall was related to any of these families.
Also, back to the lawsuit shown above. I found a marriage for William Spence and Phebe Forehand on Oct. 24, 1820 in Davidson Co., TN. May or may not be the William Spence shown above.
