Elizabeth--Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner. I have written quite a bit about the Whitledges and a lot of it can be found on USGENWEB, Pike County MO. ( I have also done a lot of Callis research.)
But, not to overwhelm you--Captain John Whitledge b.c. 1734 at Overwharton Parish, Prince William Co.VA married Alcey Fritter/Freetor/Flitter 15 September 1773 at St. Paul's, Stafford County VA.
Alcey/Alice Fritter was the daughter of Moses Fritter and Elizabeth Horton. . .and Alcey was born c. 1755, so she was much younger than her husband, Capt. John Whitledge.
They had several children when John was shot by a lone Indian and killed October 1788, leaving Alcey with very young children in frontier Bourbon Co.KY.
John's brother named Francis Callis to be the guardian of these young children, my line being Thomas who was only a few months old at the time. They were given to the Humphrey family to board and educate them, and one of the children, Susannah, married a Humphrey.
Francis Callis was an agent of some importance, and his family was from Westmoreland Co., if I remember correctly. (I believe I included it all in my articles.)Anyway, they married and had more children.
John Whitledge and his brother, William Nathanial Whitledge married sisters, Elizabeth and Frances Overall.
William Nathaniel settled in Bullitt Co.KY and was also killed by Indians. (Barack Obama descends from him.)
Both Whitledge families eventually ended up in Missouri, mine in Pike Co. and I think the Callis descendants did also. (I have fibromyalgia, and don't have the energy to dig into the details right now.)If you put Whitledge into Google, Obama's name and family tree comes right up, and it shows the earlier Overall lines that merge with Callis (but not the Callis lines.)
Barack's family moved to Kansas when they left MO. Mine to CA.
Moses Fritter was the son of John Fritter b. 1690 and Eleanor Davis and the grandson of Richard Fritter.He served in the Rev. War.
Elizabeth Horton Fritter was the daughter of Hugh Horton Jr. 1787-1766 and Elizabeth Wells Rawlings, daughter of Richard Rawlings and Jane Gollison who lived in Barbaddos, the daughter of Michael Gollison. ( I recently found the will.)
Hugh Horton Sr. married Mary Snowdall, daughter of William Snowdall b.c. 1642 and Margaret. He was a Sea Captain also.
Guess this is enough to keep you searching for a while. . .
Your cousin, Pat King
If you have specific questions after you search, I can probably find the answers. I used to keep it all in my head, but not now!!!!
