I am a descendant of Benjamin L. Whitehurst (born abt. 1801 NC).

My father is Billy Joe Robinson (b. 5/7/1938 in Hazelhurst, MS). His Father was Forrest Lee Robinson (b. 1/10/1915 in Tishomingo County, MS d. 7/20/1997). Billy Joe's mother is Sallie Barnes (b. 3/26/1915) and still lives in Iuka, MS.

Forrest Lee Robinson's father was Alfred Thomas Robinson born 2/25/1897 in Tishomingo County and died 3/7/1962 in Tishomingo County, MS. Alfred T. Robinson married Nola Newcomb (b. 08/04/1895, d. 12/23/1978 in Iuka, MS).

Alfred Thomas' father was William Joseph Robinson born 1867 and died 1952. W. J. married Mary Charlotte (aka Charolotte) Whitehurst born 11/16/1870 and died 10/30/1938 in Iuka, MS.

Mary Charolotte's father was Delaney L. Whitehurst born 4/21/1832 NC and died 6/8/1916 in Tishomingo County, MS. He married Gracey Ann Beaty born 12/21/1837 in GA and died 10/17/1897 in Tishomingo County, MS. Family history states that he was a union soldier during the Cival War and that's how all the republicans got in the family. Mary's brother was a Doctor in Iuka. I do not know his exact name, everyone always refers to him as Dr. Whitehurst. I have some more info that I can share if this helps.
