I am researching James Early Whitfield (1817, Granville Co, NC -- 1890, Pettis Co, MO)mar. Hixie High Winston 1844. His son William Henry Whitfield (1849, Franklin Co, NC -- 1921, Johnson Co, MO) mar. Nancey Ellen Scott 1871. W.H.'s daughter was Minnie Pearl (1888-1974). My questions concern James Early: 1. Does anyone have this line connected this way? 2. a county genealogy in MO states that he served in the Civil War 'in the South' even though he lived in MO; does anyone know of when and where he did serve? Any help would be appreciated.
