Thomas born in Currituck Co. NC was the grandfather of James Bray Whitehall (brother to Thomas b. 1828) James was born April 20, 1833 in Fountain County IN. He married Elizabeth Clark there Nov 21, 1852. One child born in Fountain County, IN. He then moved to Henderson County, IL (one child born there) then to Mercer County, IL (where the last three children were born) then to Greene County, IA (where all the children were married) and finally settling in Douglas County WA. with his wife and all children except one. There he died in 1916.
I have heard of the Battle of the Great Bridge, although I don't recall the entire story I understand there was a Whitehall involved. I have not researched that event as of yet.
