Mary Hamilton was probably born in Charlotte Co., VA in 1784. I don't know if she was married, but if so, she may have been a Whitlow before marriage. Mary inherited a life estate interest in 17 slaves in Laurens Co., SC in the 1850's. She and the slaves were living in Shelby Co., TN in the late 1850's. Mary sold her life estate to William Corneilus ca 1858. She died in Shelby Co., TN in 1860. Mary was somehow related to the Henderson Whitlow family of Hardin Co., TN. Henderson was born in Charlotte Co. Va in 1781, moved to Laurens Co., SC before 1810 and to Hardin Co., TN before 1820. Henderson or his wife owned said slaves. After Henderson's death in 1841, three of his children sold their interests in said slaves to William Corneilus. Is anyone related to these people?
