Crystal - I have tracked your family back to Edgefield County, South Carolina. There are 27 Whittle families in the 1860 US census. I couldn't find your family in the 1870 census.

John B Whittle at World Connect - you might want to contact the owner for more information about your Whittles.

Several other Whittle around John 1860 census and are probably his brothers. I havn't liste them all.

Go to the Edgefield site and ask for a 1850 Census Lookup and try to explain you are looking for John's father. Let them know there should be a Emanuel in John's father household.
