Note: While using ANY genealogical website or program...please be informed that ANY possible family connections are NOT valid until they can be verified with documentation. 

Scope of Project is To build a single, validated and documented shared family tree the goals being:

•1) to try and descover his ancestry •2) to create on Geni an accurate representation of the genealogical information •2) to clean up duplicates and ensure quality of the involved profiles •3) to sort out the lines and connect the different lines


Nothing is known about his ancestry nor are there any clues as to who his parents and sibllings could be. All we know is that he was born in Virgina and on the 1880 census he states that both his parents were born in Virginia.

The parents of Thomas Henry Whitworth who is found marrying in 15 Sep. 1839 in Boone county Kentucky Sarah Ann 'Sally' Gullick ARE NOT KNOWN -

There has been no trace of him in records of Kentucky of Virginia

His birth date ranges from born abt 1799 - Virginia 1818

1839 - 1818 - amrrage year assumed he was 21 at least no consent needed

census records state -

   * 1850 - 36 - virginia abt 1814
   * 1860 - 41 - virginia abt 1819
   * 1870 - 71 - Virginia
   * 1880 - 79 - Virginia
   * 1885 - 85 - Virgina - Kansas census

His tombstone reads 5 jul. 1800

Some on are giving him with a parentage and another family as follows:

John Whitworth b. England m. Sarah [-?-]

Thomas Henry born 1800 d. 1892 married - Mary Winston born 1680 Lunenberg, Virginia died 1780 Virginia, United States

They had:

   * 1) John Whitworth born 1736 Amelia, Virginia died 20 Jun 1827 Middleton, Lancashire, , England
   * 2) Ellen Whitworth born 1828 - Thornham, Norfolk, , England
   * and another has added
   * 3) Joseph Whitworth
   * 4) James whitworth born 1828 - Thornham, Norfolk, , England

Now reading and studying this so-called family of Thomas Henry one has to ask the folloing questions:

   * 1) How can Thomas Henry who was born in 1800 marry a woman born 1680 and died in 1780??
   * 2) First if Thomas Henry was born in 1800 and Mary winston born in 1680 she would of been 120 years old when Thomas Henry was born!
   * 3) Next she died in 1780 20 years before Thomas henry was born!
   * 4) Also how can he have a son born in 1736 and he was born in 1800? this makes the son born 64 years prior to his father!
   * 5) How can Thomas Henry have a daughter born in England in 1828 when Thomas Henry by census records states he was born in Virginia in 1800?
