Searching for any information on this family form Enfield
NC that had a platation in pre-civil war days.
When the family freed the slaves the slaves moved about 10 miles south
(some or all of them did) and their community became named
Whitakers NC because the slaves took on the name of the
family they were endentured to.This is my paternal grandmothers side
of the family and I also know that one of these Whitakers eventually baptized
Pocohontas in the Potomac many years prior at Jamestown,Va.
