Whitehurst Family Genealogy Forum
I saw your reference to William M. and Sarah Shipp in Missouri. My gggranmother was Ella Carson Whitehurst, born around 1850 in Missouri. Married Richard Watson in 1869, later married Joseph Hall in Booneville, MO. Later married ? Harrell in Kaufman Co, TX, then ? Kelly in Dallas TX (almost makes you question her cooking).
Ella had a brother Jessie Whitehurst who was living in Dennison, Texas in 1891. Do any of these names fit in with your Missouri Whitehursts?
Other family notes say that the Whitehurst's were from VA, TN & NJ. Thanks!
