I am a descendant of ELI MCWHORTER and ANNA REAVES of Hancock co., GA through their son WILLIAM REAVES MCWHORTER. I am aware that most or all of the sons of ELI and ANNA moved to TX after the Civil War., but I have no knowledge of the fates of the daughters. If anyone who traces their progenitors to ELI and ANNA would care to correspond with me I have many questions that I am dying to ask.

I am the great-grand daughter of JOHN STEVEN MCWHERTER. He was born somewhere in Indiana on 9-Jan-1881. He died in Clinton, Minnesota in 1957. I received this information from a Litchfield newspaper and my Uncle regarding his death. He married a woman named FRANCIS CONGWELL and they had 3 or 4 children; MAUDE, LESSIE, CLAUDE and unknown. I am LESSIE’s granddaughter. At some point in his life JOHN lived somewhere in Iowa then Clinton, Minnesota. I’m not sure how he fits into the “tree”, but in searching some of the web resources, Noble, Indiana seems to be a possible place of birth for him. My family has always been under the impression that we are of Irish descent from his side of the family.

Seeking info on the family of GEORGE MCWH*RTER, who died in Hardin co., TN sometime during early 1847. In the 1850 census, his widow, MATILDA, appeared with three children, AARON, ANNA and NARCISSA. It appears that MATILDA died in 1854, and the children left the county shortly thereafter. Any additional info would be appreciated, particularly on GEORGE and his son, AARON (who relocated to Fulton co., KY).

Searching for information on ____ MCWHIRTER who married MARY E. HALE abt1845. She was born in Alabama abt1827 and died in Benton co., Arkansas on 7-Oct-1892. They had 3 known sons: DAVID JAMES MCWHIRTER (b. abt1846 in Tennessee); LORENZO DOW MCWHIRTER (b. 18-Mar-1856 in Kentucky); and, HUBBARD GILLESPIE MCWHIRTER (b. 6-Jan-1860 in Tennessee). MARY was remarried and living in Arkansas in 1870. Her MCWHIRTER husband may have been killed in the Civil War. I’ve found no trace of him in the 1850 or 1860 census.

I am searching for a JEFF and EMILY MCWHIRTER who had a daughter, ELSIE. They lived in Aurora, MO in the first quarter of the 1900’s. I believe JEFF was a farmer. His wife EMILY was a half-sister to my grandmother SARAH CATHERN JONES MAIN. EMILY was older than SARAH, so I don’t know if she was OLIVER JONES child or CORNELIA GRIFFEN’s child, my grandmother’s parents. Does anyone recall seeing these names?
