Searching for possible WHITFIELDs living in Person County, NC in early 1800's. My ancestor, ROBERT A. WHITFIELD married SARAH MCKISSACK abt. 1857 in Georgia. In the Gordon Co., GA 1860 Census, Robert's birthplace is listed as NC, born abt. 1835. I know that Sarah was born in Person Co. about 1837-8. Taking a shot that perhaps Robert was born in that county too.
Also listed in that 1860 Gordon Co. county census is two other male Whitfield's that list their birthplace as North Carolina. GEORGE W. WHITFIELD is listed as age 45 with ELIZABETH WHITFIELD, age 38. JOHN G. WHITFIELD is enumerated near George and is listed as age 23 living with REBECCA, age 17 and JAMES, age 3 mos (both of them born in GA).
Any info on this group of WHITFIELDs would be greatly appreciated! The Georgia marriage records were destoyed by Union soldiers and Robert Whitfield died in 1862 in the Civil War. I'm desperate for some piece of info on Robert's parents (possibly George and Elizabeth?) and which NC county this group of Whitfields is from!!! Please help!
