Cynthia, I would very much be interested in sharing Wilhoit-Willhoit family information with you.I am especially interested in the Bible entries. In 1985 we purchased a home and acreage, nine miles south of Cameron, in Clinton County. Ironically, next to our driveway was the old Deer Creek-Holland Cemetery where many of your Wilhoit family are buried. With the coincidence of surnames (we spell ours with two L's) we have done substantial research on the Wilhoit-Willhoit families. We left the Cameron area in 1991 and now live in Kansas City (MO).George's line is thru Solomon Wilhoit and his first wife, Katherine Ridenhouse of Greene County, TN; John W. Wilhoit (1784-1860) & Mary Vansandt; Alfred Hunter Wilhoit (1821-1901)& his second wife, Lydia Lamb Rollins; James Washington Willhoit (1850-1926) & Elizabeth Griffith; George Washington Willhoit (1881-1942) & Clara Bruer; and Howard Thomas Willhoit(1918-1949) & Ella "Mae" Sallee. James Washington Willhoit moved from Tennessee to Missouri in 1866 and homesteaded in Ozark County.

Several years ago I obtained an article entitled "Early Farm" from the Clinton County Genealogical & Historical Society. There is a black & white picture of the Wilhoit farm (built in 1851). The article reads: "In 1843 Sam Wilhoit bought the Creason homestead, nine miles south, where he developed fine orchards and livestock. Mrs. Elizabeth Wilhoit Ward, now 92 years old, is the only first generation living. Other descendants are grandchhildren: W.O. & E.S. Watson, Clara Pollard, Else and Gene Wallace, and Nancy Jane Knoch."

Samuel Wilhoit (1816-1888) was the son of James Wilhoit (1790-1850) and his first wife, Susannah Hixson, who were married 04 September 1809 in Greene County, TN. James Wilhoit married (2) Mrs. Nancy (Estes) Corum, the widow of Nerod Corum, on 03 July 1828 in Clay County, MO. (James and John W. Wilhoit were sons of Solomon Wilhoit & his first wife, Katherine Ridenhouse). Samuel Wilhoit (1816-1888) married (1) Nancy Benton (1817-1857 on 28 August 1834 in Clay County, MO. Two of the first graves that you see in the Deer Creek-Holland Cemetery are two of their sons-- John Q. Wilhoit (1852-1920) and Greenup Wilhoit (1840-1904) who married Elizabeth Ann Henderson (1843-1933). Samuel married (2) Catherine Smith (1826-1896) on 09 March 1855 in Caldwell County, MO. Their daughter, Ida V. Wilhoit, married John Hinds.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to contact me directly at:
