William Whitworth, b Jan 29, 1839, Breckinridge Co., KY
I am looking for the parents of the subject William Whitworth. In the 1850 Breckinridge Co. KY Census William is enumerated(at age 12) with Bethlehem (Berryman) Whitworth (widow of Abraham Whitworth) and two of her sons. Abraham died in 1835, eliminating him as William's father.It is possible that Bethlehem is William's grandmother or step-grandmother. Abraham was 20 years older than Bethleham, married before and had a family with his first wife.
In 1860 William was single, 21 years old, living alone, and next door to Amos and Margaret (Whitworth) Johnson. Margaret is the daughter of Abraham and Bethlehem. William married Sarah Jane Simmons August 11, 1861, in Breckinridge Co., Kentucky.
If anyone can shed any light on William, my gg grandfather, and his parents, or willing to share data, please contact me at: email@example.com
I am willing to share. Below is William's family to help identify him. If anyone would like more data, or want to see an outline of Abraham's family, I am willing to share privately.
