Classification: Query
Surnames: WHITEFIELD & Towler
Seeking info on the parentage/place of origin (likely England) of my gx5 grandfather, William Whit(e)field, who might have been born in Goochland Co., VA in 1751 and died in Shelby, St. Clair, Alabama in 1835. He fought the British under the command of Gen. George Washington at Valley Forge.

William and his wife, Mary Towler (Toe-lur), had six children: George, Elizabeth, James T., John T., Mary and David. Their son, James Towler Whitfield (b. 1777 in Goochland, VA, died 1850 in Bushy Fork Person Co., NC) , was my gx4 grandfather.

Descendants of Wm. Whitefield settled in NC, SC (Pendleton District), GA , Alabama (and beyond).

Hope you can help me "hop the pond" with William Whitefield's family tree. Or, if you have info re. the migration of Mary Towler's parents (Mary and John), I'd appreciate that too.

Thank you. - EW
