My G. G. Grandfather HARRISON MCDONALD was born in South Carolina (don’t know the exact location) around 1828. He is the son of ELIZABETH MCWHORTER (LIZBETH MCWHORTER) who married a gentleman by the last name of McDonald. I don’t know where they got married, when they immigrated, etc. ELIZABETH, her son HARRISON, and his siblings are shown on the 1850 Murray co., GA census records. ELIZABETH must have been widowed at that time. The census states that ELIZABETH, age 46, was born in SC. Her children were: HARRISON M.; FRANCIS M.; JOHN L.; WILLIAM D.; MOSES H.; MARY LEWIS; and STEPHEN H. (the last two twins).

I am searching for info on ELIZABETH MCQUERTER/MCQUIRTA. She was born between 1775-1780 and died in 1839. She lived in TN with her husband, ROBERT NEWTON MCCUISTION/MCQUISTION, whom she married in 1806 in Davidson co., TN. She had three children with him that I know of: CHARITY; ANN MARJORIE; and MILLY (the last two twins born 22-Jun-1817). ELIZABETH was ROBERT’s second wife. I believe he was a widower, his first wife being CHARITY DUNN. The story is that she was a well-bred and well-educated woman. ROBERT was a wealthy planter who eventually moved the family to Texas.

Trying to locate any family connections to HOWARD EARL MCWHORTER, born1921. His son GARY LEIGH MCWHORTER, would like to contact other family members so he can get to know his roots. HOWARD was born somewhere in the south and raised by another family, but not adopted. The family’s name was HAUS. HOWARD retained his McWhorter surname. He had a sister who was killed in an auto accident when she was a teenager. He had a brother named KYLE who was a truck driver. GARY is very hopeful that someone will contact him through me. All information will be sent directly to GARY and will be confidential, if it is required.

Looking for ELIZABETH ANN MCWHORTER (b. 27-Jun-1869; d. 5-Dec-1950) who married WILLIAM JOSEPH PAYNE (b. 23-Dec-1835; d. 7-Jul-1928) in GA. WILLIAM fought in the Civil War and was noted as "Fiddlin Joe". ELIZABETH was much younger than he and was his second wife. They had four children: IMA JEAN, AHAZ, ATHA and RAYMOND (my grandfather). It was said that ELIZABETH ANN MCWHORTER was Cherokee Indian and that she was purchased by "Fiddlin Joe" for an unknown amount of livestock...? This may be just an ole tale but AHAZ & ATHA were both very dark skinned. Was she a McWhorter and if so what line? "Fiddlin Joe" had a 1000 acre farm in what is now Temple, GA. Any info and help in finding my great grandmother would be greatly appreciated. My wife is from the DAVID & MARY POSTEN line of McWhorters, so we are interested to know if we married cousins like so many of the McWhorter Clan.

Seeking info on the ancestors of CATHERINE YOUNG who married in Cincinnatus, NY Dr. JOHN MCWHORTER (b. 1768, Salem, NY). She was the daughter of the widow NANCY YOUNG of Williamstown, MA who remarried to a ZURIEL RAYMOND and removed from MA to NY with him and her earlier family. Supposedly widow YOUNG was going to Cincinnatus because she had been granted land from her husband, a Revolutionary soldier, who died in the war.

Seeking info about POLLY MCWHORTER who married JOHN ARMSTRONG. I don’t know the dates of birth or marriage, but one of their children, ANNIE ARMSTRONG married ANTHONY VAUGHAN in 1765. POLLY and JOHN lived and probably died in Orange County, New York. His will was probated in 1797. The only info I have about POLLY MCWHORTER has come from the Orange County (NY) Genealogy Society. One source says he married a Mrs. SARAH MCWHORTER. Were she and POLLY the same person? Any info about POLLY/MRS. SARAH MCWHORTER would be appreciated. Any info about JOHN ARMSTRONG and his children would also be appreciated.

Need information on the parents of DAVID MCWHORTER who married CLARISSA ANN WELLS in Lincoln County, Tennessee Oct-1866. He is later located in Milam and Menard County, Texas. The 1880 Menard County census shows his age at 38 indicating he was born in 1842 and shows him as being born in Texas, father in Georgia and mother in Missouri, although the 1900 census states he was born in Tennessee. Appreciate any information.
