I would like to hear from anyone who has info. on my gggggrand parents Thomas&Elizabeth Duttrow Phillips married Dec. 6 1774. They had property in Martinsburg VA. in 1770's then moved to Augusta Co. VA. along Calfpasture River in 1788. He bought and sold several propertys in that area till he died 1834. His Will is in Court House at Stanton VA. I am in Phillips Group 2 At Family Tree DNA. We believe his father was another Thomas who died 1779 at Martinsburg without a Will and that he was married to Mary Pollard.
I am looking for information regarding my great-great-great grandfather John Kielty who was in Augusta about 1840 or earlier as far as I can tell. His son, also John, was born in Richmond in either 1861 or 62. Family then moved on to NYC sometime after the Civil War. Any help would be appreciated.
For the many people who have entered that Peter Whittinghill was born in Augusta County, Virginia - there is absolutely no proof of his birth in this country or another. Apparently you have copied information from another who erroneously entered his birth. I have searched Peter Whittinghill endlessly in Augusta Co., VA; Mercer Co., KY, Warrick/Spencer Cos, IN, Salt Lake City, Fort Wayne, and anywhere I could look on the internet. No one knows anything about Peter Whittinghill before he was in the Revolutionary War. The Whittinghill book gives several stories about Peter and I've heard others, but they are ALL speculation. If you have any real source (the Whittinghill book is not a source, it's secondhand information) proving his birth or the births of his children, please post for all to see. This is the biggest brick wall I have and I too would like to know if Peter was found in a cabbage patch or he actually had parents somewhere. Thanks.
