Hi Jackie - We have emailed each other before about this lineage. I have been studying mine and this is what I am in process of researching.
William Whitfield & Jemina Ely, as you know had 9 children. I am following the lineage of one of their sons: 1. Alexander Ely Whitfield who married Nancy Ingram. Alexander's brother is, John S. Whitfield who married Nicey English (your line)
Child of Alexander & Nancy: (5 children total) 1. James Ely Whitfield married Sarah Montgomery Blackman/Blackmond
Child of James & Sarah: (9 children total) 1. James Alexander Whitfield married Permelia Ann Adaline Barrington.
