Or, Subtitled: “An old Virginia family of English ancestry”
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. 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.

This posting continues my discussion of the two daughters of Charles Whitlock and wife Mary Davies — Agnes, who married John Grayson; and Hannah, who married James Calfee. I began this discussion with this previous posting discussing Agnes and her husband John Grason. In what follows, I’ll discuss Hannah Whitlock, her husband James Calfee, and their family.

In my penultimate posting, I told you that, having recounted Thomas Whitlock’s (abt. 1745 – 1830) story up to the point that he and wife Hannah Phillips Whitlock sold their land in Wythe County, Virginia, and moved to Kentucky in 1805, I’d proceed with a chronicle of their life in Cumberland County, Kentucky. Before I do that, however, I’d like to share some important information I’ve now unearthed about Jonathan Jennings.
