I am also tracing this same whitfield lineage, only my g-grand father is the son of Nathan Whitfield. My problem is there are two William C. Whitfield's born abt. 1858 and 1860. Each of them lived a different life. Their mother was Elizabeth Cobb Green. One William became a doctor and the other lived in Tattnall, County Georgia and was a minister. I'm confused. I have a picture of the minister and he looks like the Whitfield's I have found on the internet, namely a judge in Flordia. Can someone help me clear up this confusion?
