Thank you for replying to my query. I'm not a descendant of James Augustus Whitley, but I believe my line connects to yours just a couple of generations back from James Augustus. I have visited his home place and the small family cemetery in Martin County and have photos of both. I have quite a bit of information and would love to share it with you and compare notes. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll send you what I have.
