- " Elijah Whitton. His wife was Nancy Swope. I think they were both born in Virginia. Their first son was names Jesse W Whitton and he was born in Ky in 1812. He married Angelina Ann Swope in 1836 in MO. Angelina was born in KY in 1818. Her parents were Charles Swope and Ruth Wiles. In 1844 they were in Scottland CO. MO. along with Elijia. Jesse joined Fremont's third expedition and came to CA in 1845. He returned to MO in late 1846 or 1847. He and his family show up in Napa Co, CA census in 1850. The Swopes show up next door in the census along with Jesse's brothers Green and Morgan Whitton. Both Elijia and Nancy may have come to CA at the same general time. Jesse and his family and some of the Swopes move to the Hollister, CA area around the 1860s. Angelina's family sister? was in the Hollister area in 1880. Jess and Angelina had 9 daughters. Also Angelina's nick name was Missouri. Some of the Whittons still live in the general Napa Co, CA region. My great grandmother was Emma Whitton who married Marion Crow. Their Daughter Ella married J.J. Harris and their son Howard Harris was my father"
