Oh yes, the story of what happened varies from version to version.. so as to which one is correct, who knows.
I think the whitehead family was living close to some Bartons, who were also from SC, but I am not sure.
Alot of these families relate in one way or another.
It would seem to me too that the time was right, the name etc. It is also spelled various ways...waford,wofford etc.
I'm still looking at some of my other documents,books to see what else is mentioned if anything on your family..
sorry I put james in there!
can you contact me on ancestry? I'll send it to your email if you want to post it on that instead of here, but if you want to post it here that is fine too.
