Bio and Links
Bio Photo I research the McWh*rter family and I am a member of the McWh*rter family DNA project Kit# 15497.I am the DNA representative for William McWhirter 1720-1802 and his brother Henry McWhirter I live in Lincoln County Tennessee. I have 38 years of Family research to exchange with anyone who has connections or information on this family. I research North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas. My main families are McWhirter, Moore, Ferrier, Marlin, Baker, Lewis, Little, Delong. I work to expand all the memorials I manage and link each and every person to their family members. I do not care for people who horde memorials for no other reason than to say they have the greatest amount of memorials, that they plan to do nothing with "ever".

James R McWhorter #47123033
It is my belief that James is the son of Henry & Martha based on the 1860 census for Hardeman Co TN and the obituary added to James' memorial. I know that my uncle, ED Coston and my GGmother, Lucretia Coston Wright attended the funeral and were in-laws of James because he married Melissa Coston in Lamar Co TX 10-6-1874. I have not yet located the 1870 census for McWhorter but I know that my Coston family was from Blount & Hardeman Co TN. (See Memorial #60157205). I would appreciate any "Proof" you might have to help me. Thank you for all your research.

Hi Jessie,
Sorry, I cannot determine what is written on the bottom of his memorial. I do know that it is the name of his wife but the first name has worn over time. Did you check with John as he took the photo? Another option would be for me to send the link to a photographer friend and see if she could use different filters. Let me know...Debbie

Hi, Jesse. I received your message about transferring Jesse's memorial. Sorry it has taken so long to respond, but my father has been in the hospital, and I haven't been online.

How are you related? Jesse's wife, Rebecca, is my cousin. Therefore, we are also cousins. I would love to add you to my family tree.

Please email at

I am not certain where James S McWhirter is buried. Since he is supposed to have died at Corinth, MS, you might try contacting the administrative office of the National Cemetery at Corinth. It is possible that he could be buried there.

Yes, his 2nd wife, Rebecca, is memorial 5238787. His first wife was Ann Arnold but I don't know where she's buried. Richard and Rebecca are my 3rd great grandparents. Are you related to them?

Hi, Jesse. Think I found the tombstone of one of your folks at Mt Olivet in Nashville a while back, and am just now getting around to posting it. I don't remember seeing his spouse sharing the monument, but could have been too late in the day to read it if so. Will have to check. At any rate if, indeed, this should be one you're looking for, just let me know.
