Abijah/Nancy Compton Whitt Descendents

Posted: 23 Jan 2000 4:46PM GMT
Edited: 31 May 2002 12:08AM GMT
Bob, I am descended from two of Abijah Nancy's children, Rhoda and Fleming Trigg Whitt. My records show that Rhoda's son Amos married Fleming's daughter, Sarah. I show Amos DOB Mar 1848 DOD 1923 and Sarah's DOB 15 Feb 1848 DOD 17 Dec 1937. They were married 20 July 1873. Their daughter Flora Isabel Whitt was my greatgrandmother.

I didn't have all the children for Abijah Nancy. Also I have a Hannah Sarles married to an Abijah Whitt on 11 Feb 1815. Is this the same Abijah or another one?

I am also trying to determine the parentage of Mary Showalter, Fleming's wife.

Do you know anything about Rhoda's marriage?
Since here name was listed as Whitt, I took for granted that her child may have been out of wedlock.

Any help in clearing up my records would be appreciated.

Never married

Regarding: I didn't have all the children for Abijah Nancy. Also I have a Hannah Sarles married to an Abijah Whitt on 11 Feb 1815. Is this the same Abijah or another one?
The date of marriage is what I have but I have the husband as John Bunyan Whitt – and six children; I also show John marrying Sarah Allen and Ann Schackleford Waller - I show John as the son of Hezekiah Whitt and Rachel “Indian Maiden” or Skaggs (Rachel was a full blooded Cherokee Indian). Anyway, that’s what I have and I have much more on Hezekiah and John and their families if you want it.

I am also trying to determine the parentage of Mary Showalter, Fleming's wife. I don’t have it.

Do you know anything about Rhoda's marriage?
Since here name was listed as Whitt, I took for granted that her child may have been out of wedlock. No not out wedlock as husband was L. Whitt as shown above.

Sorry this is so long. It would be easier if you send me your email address it would be easier to communicate. Good luck. Bob
