I am related to the Whitehursts through the Whitis family.
In our geneagoly I have found it says that Simon Whitehurst, who married Argent Cox , was born in 1730 and died in 1800. Thier son Batson was the father of Thomas joshua who was the father of John Whitehurst Whitis.....my branch.

Okay, now, I found a problem when going thru records that I'm hoping someone can clear up for me....Simon Whitehurst is listed as the son of Richard whitehurst and Margaret Nichols....
BUT Richard Whitehurst died in 1705 25 yrs before the Simon who married Argent Cox was born.....

I have also found a listing that says Richard and Margaret's son Simon was born in 1675 which fits in with the birthdates of his other children...they can't be the same Simons....SO there appears to be a missing link somewhere between Richard Whitehurst/Margaret Nichols and Simon Whitehurst and Argent Cox....does anyone have the answer here?? Please feel free to email me at
worrywrt29@aol.com if you can clear this myster up for me :)
