Personally this has been one of the hardest families for me to find anything about. Of course there was a family name spelling change McWhorter to McWherter. I haven't been able to determine what happened to my gggm Mary Carraway McWhorter/McWherter or her children other than my ggf Jim McWherter. If anyone has any information on this family I would be greateful if you could share anything.
Best,
Jim Griffin
