he might be in Doris Estes WHITELEY book, Washington Co. AR. check the library for a copy.
Doris Estes author of the Whiteley book. Her book has 16,000 Whiteley's and only one man that lived in AL! Samuel Whiteley, her ggg-grandfather, married in White Co. TN about 1817 to Lucy Maynard, a 1/2 Cherokee. extrapolated: They moved from McMinn. TN to Jackson Co., AL where they homesteaded to be near Lucy's parents and the Cherokee Reservation. They sold their homestead in 1831 and arrived in Washington Co. AR in 1832. He had joined his two brothers, Isaac and Charles Booth Whiteley, both Primitive Baptist Preachers. The Bible of Samuel listed the names, dates of birth and marriages and some deaths of his children and there is not a Sue listed. Samuel died in Newton Co. AR in 1864. Doris does not think Samuel is related to our Whitely's. She did not list for me the names of the children in the Bible so don't know if our Frank is in there. She is very insistent that about the spelling of Whiteley (two e's). I have seen no docs where a Whiteley ever wrote the name - but noticed that the marriage book spelled it Whiteley -
Land records: 1839 Samuel Whiteley SW sec 13 Twp 17 R26; 1840 Isaac Whiteley NW SW SEC 28 TWP17 R 26

William L Whitley & Rebecca Jane Day Oct 19, 1842.
