Subject: [ORANGEBURGH_SC] Will of Jacob Whetsell
Date: Mon, 28 Jul 2003 21:13:32 -0400


In a will dated July 28, 1847, Jacob Whetsell names wife, Ann Darley,
son Joel Martin, son John William, daughters Hariet Ann Elizabeth
and Laura Emma. Ann Darley is given to be Ann Darley Carr from another
source and was probably the mother of John William, and the daughters
mentioned above, but she could not be the mother of Joel Martin Whetsell
who was born in November of 1817.

Looking for information on 1st wife of Jacob Whetsell, parents of Ann
Darley Carr, and descendants of all of the above. It is likely that Ann
Darley Carr was the sister of a Harriet Carr who married Isaac Minus
Johnston. Would like to confirm that as well.

Also, Jacob Whetsell is given as the son of Martin Whetsell and Elizabeth
Unknown, and was supposed sibling to John Martin Whetsell, an Elizabeth
Whetsell, and a Henry whetsell. There may be other siblings.

>From several different sources, John Martin Whetsell married Margaret Hutto;
Elizabeth married George Bowman; and a Henry Whetsell was married and may
have had at least one daughter before 1820 according to 1820 Colleton District
census report.

Would like to hear some feed back on these folks as well.
