Or, Subtitled: Post-Revolutionary Migration from Western North Carolina to Tennessee and Kentucky
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). 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:

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.
