I am looking for info. on a family shown 1870 Sumter Co, GA at Americus. A widower Ann Whitehurst 40, William 15, Owens 13, Henry 11, James 9 and Mary 4 all b. in GA. On 1880 census, William is in Bibb Co. at Macon living with James Whitehurst. They may be related. James is son of Howell Litle Whitehurst who is son of Charles Whitehurst of Wilkinson Co, GA. James died 1884. William moved to Barbour Co, AL at Atkinson's area and married Nancy Cockcoft 1884. She was granddaughter of Wesley and Martha Highnote Wright and was living with them there. Wm. and Nancy moved to Troy, AL and then before 1890, they were in Milton, Santa Rosa Co, FL. They had 3 children: James Wesley b. 1885 AL, Wm. Henry b. 1890 FL and Carrie Lucille b. 1894 FL. Does anyone have info. on this family?
