Looking for African American Whitehurst Family in Jones County, Georgia 1800s

I am researching the Whitehursts from Jones County Georgia. There is a Green Whitehurst on the 1880 Census married to a Rebecker Whitehurst with two children, Owen age 3 and Abbie age 1. Owen is my maternal great grandfather. There is also a Austen and Sarah listed for the 1870 Census. I am looking descendants of any of these Whitehursts. Owen Whitehurst married a Kate Whitehurst and later moved to Chicago, IL from Georgia, they had 11 children. I believe that Green Whitehurst had brothers and sisters in Georgia at the time. I believe there are still some Whitehurst family in Georgia. These Whitehurst are African American.
