Yes, Louisa was Francis Sr. sister left behind in Holland. Parish records do not exist though for these or the parents.
My information on Francis Jr. is that he was born Sept. 16, 1754 and married Judith (or Judah) Davis in 1781. He fought at the Cowpens with the rest of the Whelchel boys :) under Col. Brandon and was in the battle with all brothers and his father (who was a surgeon by skill.) Reference: FPA R11300; AA8398; DAR, XCI, 163
I am a direct descendent from this union of Francis Jr. & Judith Davis. Hope this is not too confusing!
