Judy...here's a tad of information about Asariah: Conflicting birth dates in the same book: WHITTINGTON-BROWN BOOK states he was born in Md. in 1783: another notation is born Aug 25, 1794. From the Whittington-Brown Book 1066-1965: Winona Whittington Pfander; #234: In the census of 1850, Asariah WHITTINGTON gave his birth place as Maryland. The word Maryland is written out completely which leaves no doubt of the place where he was born. The farm on which they located when they came to Illinois in 1828, and upon which they (he and his wife) are both buried, is located in what was known at the time as the Mount Zion District. William Jaspar WHITTINGTON, grandson of Asariah and Elizabeth, in his autobiographical sketch of his life, published in the "Franklin County History, Centennial Edition, page 68, writes of his grandfather: "My grandfather was a gallant soldier under Andrew JACKSON at New Orleans and I used to love to sit and hear him relate his experiences in that war..." After his marriage on February 8, 1814, Asariah entered the service on November 18, the same year. He served throughout his term of service under the command of General Andrew JACKSON, and among other engagements participated in the Battle of New Orleans. His service record in Adjutant General's Office is as follows: "Private in Captain Mathew NEALE's Company of Infantry, Third Regiment, West Tennessee Militia. Drafted at Gallatin, Sumner County, Tennessee, October 25, 1814, for a term of six months. His roll is dated Camp Hines, November 18, 1814. He was present. His certificate of honorable discharge, dated May 18, 1815, is in his file in the Adjutant General's Office, Archives, Washington, D. C. This certificate is signed by William CAROLL, Major General, Second Division, Tennessee Militia." (RICKnote: Interesting to note that when the widow applied for bounty land December 11, 1855, William C. WHITTINGTON (one of Asariah/Elizabeth's sons) and Augustus ADAMS attested to the fact that that Asariah and Elizabeth were man and wife, that they had lived in the County for the last 27 years except about one year when they resided in Marion County (Illinois). Asariah WHITTINGTON's name was probably Thomas Asariah, named for his grandfather Thomas WHITTINGTON. He did not name any of his sons Thomas.... (and) was called Asa/Acie by everyone who knew him...."

This is probably more information than you want, but I'll include Asariah and 3 generations of descendants... hope it doesn't "scramble" when I send it. Hope this helps. Email me (anyone) if something/someone rings a bell or if I can be any more help... Rick
