Re: William Whitworth, b Jan 29, 1839, Breckinridge Co., KY
In regard to your question asking if your William Whitworth was connected to Isaac Whitworth, son of Abraham Whitworth, Sr. of Breckinridge Co., KY.
Breckinridge Co., KY Deed Book 27, pp. 16-21.This concerns the settlement of the estate of Abraham Whitworth, Sr. which was settled after the death of his widow, Behethlan.The settlement was ordered by the Breckinridge Co. Oct 1869 court. The deeds for the division of his estate to his heirs dated 5 Mar 1870.All of the heirs are named including some grandchildren.Isaac had died before the settlement so the names of his heirs were named in one part of the document - Burrell Whitworth, Allen Whitworth, Abraham Whitworth, Nancy Compton, Elizabeth Stinnet& James Stinnet her husband, Henrietta Stinnet, Zilpha Horsley & Allen Horsley her husband. Linda J. Snider & John W. Snider her husband, Eliza Adams & James Adams children of Mary Adams, late Whitworth.
Isaac did not leave a will but often names of heirs are found in the division of an estate as in this case. You will note William was not named as one of Isaac's heirs.
