Regarding Charles Whitman, perhaps there might be a clue here. In the Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia on page 503, we find the orphans of Charles Whitman, deceased. This would mean his wife had already died. The date of the apprenticeships is 1768, so this would suggest a possible date range for the death of Charles i.e. 1767/1768.
His orphaned children are listed as: 1. Hurson Mathias Whitman was was apprenticed to James Gregory to learn the trade of weaver. This could be Matthew? 2. Catherine Whitman was apprenticed to Andrew Siltington; 3. Jacob Whitman was apprenticed to John Warwick as a shoe maker.
If Sarah Whitman Carlock was a daughter of Charles Whitman, which we believe to be true, then she would have been married prior to 1768 when the orphaned children were being farmed out. My records show that she married Hanchrist Carlock as his second wife in 1764, so this would fit perfectly. This also suggests that there could have been other older children besides the three orphans listed above.
Charles Whitman is listed as being part of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Augusta. His wife, Sarah Mathias, is allegedly part of the German immigration that landed in Pennsylvania. We know that the Carlocks first arrived in Pennsylvania after older brothers arrived about 1710 in the Schoharie NY area. In the Pomeroy Carlock book, Sarah Whitman Carlock claimed to be descended from German royalty, so this would fit.
If anyone else is researching this family and has information to add, I would appreciate an email. LM firstname.lastname@example.org
