Re: William & Elizabeth Whitlatch - Scott Co. Indiana
I think that I might have figured it out by comparing all the census records from 1840 - 1870 for the Whitlatch family in Scott Co., IN.It would seem that Isaac J. Whitlatch (b. Nov 1850) was the son of John Whitlatch and his wife Jane.I have looked at a newly received family bible copy that lists the following:
Barnet Whitlatch was born November 10th AD 1771 and Elisabeth his wife was Born August 20th 1778.
John Their Son was born May 1st 1799.
Sarah their Daughter was Born April 10th(stained) AD 1801 (slightly stained as well.)
Ruth their Daughter waS born March 16th 1803
William their Son was born January 14th 1806
Barnet Rice Their Son was born February 22nd 1809
Charles Kimberlin their son was Born March 9th 1812
Isaac Williams their Son was Born October 7th 1813
Sarah Herbert Sister to Elisabeth Whitlatch was born March 14th 1770
Died August 31st 1854
Jane Whitlatch Consort of John Whitlatch was born ...
Barnet Whitlatch Died April 5th AD 1854
Elisabeth his wife Died September 30th AD 1851
John Their Son Died July 27th AD 1850
William their son Died July 6th AD 1835
Charles H. their son died March 29th AD 1869
Jane Whitlatch Conbsort of John Whitlatch died July AD 1858 or 1888
** This information came from Barnet Whitlatch's bible.The copy came from a DAR application.
Because the only two sons that were not accounted for from Barnet's family were John and William, it is easy then to point to John Whitlatch as the husband of Jane Whitlatch mentioned in the bible as the Consort of John.John died July 27th 1850 which would explain why he is not listed in the 1850 census which was taken in September I believe.
Hope this helps someone!
