As the previous posting indicates, the 24 March 1811 will of Charles Whitlock in Stokes County, North Carolina, names his wife Esther, who was still living when Charles wrote the will, and the following children: John, James, William, Thomas, Alexander, Agnes (Dodson), and Mary (Pruitt).[1] The will states that James had predeceased his father. I’m listing the children in the order in which their names appear in the will. A number of pieces of evidence suggest that Charles did not name his children by order of birth in his will, and that Agnes was his and Esther’s oldest child, probably followed by Alexander. 

Here’s the information I have about Charles and Esther Whitlock’s children Agnes, Alexander, and William:

Children of James Whitlock (abt. 1718 – 1749) and Wife Agnes Christmas: Charles Whitlock (abt. 1739 – 1814) of Louisa and Albemarle County, Virginia, and Stokes County, North Carolina

With my last posting, I finished sharing my information about the descendants of Thomas Whitlock (abt. 1745 – 1830) and wife Hannah Phillips, my 5th great-grandparents. I’m now going to climb back up the Whitlock family tree and start a series of postings about Thomas Whitlock’s siblings, the other children of James Whitlock and Agnes Christmas of Hanover and Louisa County, Virginia, whom I haven’t yet discussed in detail.

As we’ve seen, the 22 January 1857 Wythe County, Virginia, will of William Hurst names five daughters: Nancy Suthern, Elizabeth Carnahan, Lucinda Hurst, Virginia Suthern, and Joanah Boyd.[1] It also names one son, Allen W. Hurst, specifying that he is William’s son, and names William F. Hurst without stating that he is William’s son. According to Hurst family researcher Gwen Hurst, who is discussed in the posting linked above, William Hurst and Mildred Whitlock appear also to have had a daughter Matilda who predeceased her father, and a son Charles.

In a previous posting, I shared digital images of Mildred Whitlock Hurst’s Virginia death certificate and her death listing in the 1854 death register of Wythe County, Virginia.[1] Both death records give Mildred’s age as 70 when she died 8 June 1854 Reed Island Creek in Wythe County, Virginia. This places her birth in 1784. Her parents Thomas Whitlock and Hannah Phillips were living on Little Reed Island Creek in Wythe County at the time of her birth.
