  • Notes 
    • Born in District 2, Anderson County, Tennessee to Cornelius Whitton and his wife Nancy.

      Notes from Carlos Eugene Easley, Great-Grandson of GWW: George Washington Whitton married Nancy Gilbert and after eight children his wife died in childbirth. He married her sister, Paulina Gilbert, who had come to care for the babies and after two children she died in childbirth. He took all ten back to Grandma and enlisted in the Tennessee army. After four years he returned to Tennessee and married a 24 year old girl. After six children she died and he went to California where he died at 92. When my wife Wilma and I visited his grave we thought "Mary" must be a son's wife. Then we got the records from the War Department. He didn't mention his first ten kids when he applied for a civil war pension at the age of 70!"
