I am also a descendant of the Whitaker family. My grandmother and some other family members are in the DAR and have done a lot of research on the family history. Though most of the information is either in my Grandmothers head and not written down yet or documented on DAR paperwork which is not easy for the family to transcribe, she is working diligently to write it out in a way that the family can understand. Once she does this, I am going to publish it. In the meantime, I am trying to gather information for our family web page on myfamily.com. Any information that you have would be helpful and I will share information in return. I do know that my distant relative, Rev. John Whitaker baptized Pocahontis. I have a picture of the painting that is in the rotunda of the Capitol Building. My family is from Rocky Mount, NC. Some of my family attends the Whitaker Chapel Family Reunion each year in Enfield, NC. As a matter of fact, it is coming up on June 11th. I will be going this year for the first time. Please e-mail me at Lwiddle1@aol.com
with any information you have. I look forward to hearing from you.
