John Whitman SC/GA
Posted by: BEN CALLAHAN (ID *****1945) Date: July 17, 2011 at 10:20:55

Am looking for info on the family of John Whitman, b. cir 1849, SC, son of David (Davis) Whitman and Lorena Callahan. Davis Whitman and Lorena Callahan were married in Jackson Co. GA in 1848. The family was residing in Forsyth Co. GA in 1850. Lorena(probable daughter of John Callahan and Nancy Lay) died in 1856 and is buried beside her grand-father, James Callahan, in Jackson Co. GA.
David was a cabinet maker and I think he was somehow connected to the family of Davis and "Fetnal" Whitman from Spartanburg, SC. Davis Whitman was born 1790-1800 in Massachusetts. He was also a cabinet maker.
Any info will be greatly appreciated.
