much more information on this line than is shown here. Please
contact me if you are interested in additional information.
Whitaker was born Bet. 1744 - 1747 in Prince Georges Co., MD,
and died 1809 in Logan Co., KY. He married Isabel Jane Acklen
Bef. 1770. She was born Abt. 1747, and died Bef. 1809.
Notes for Thomas Whitaker: Thomas
was believed to have been born in MD, probably Prince Georges Co. He
died in 1809, his estate having been inventoried and sold in Dec
1809, Logan Co. Book 1-A, page 121-128. In a DAR application, a
descendant said his wife was Isabel Jane Acklen. There is no record
of service in the Revolution, but he could have been among the
thousands for whom a service record is nonexistent. When the Sandy
Creek Baptist Church was organized on 15 Jun 1805, there was a
membership list of 40 persons and the first four on the list were:
Wm. Gough, Thomas Whitaker, Isbel Whitaker, Nancy Whitaker (identify
of Nancy has never surfaced). Also in the records of that church,
there is a checkmark in the column "died" for Thomas and Isbel.
There is a checkmark in the column "dismissed by letter" for Nancy
to join another church.
Butler Co. Deed Book B, page 23, 9 Jan 1815, there is an indenture
between Mark Whitaker, Jinny Whitaker, Henry Whitaker, David
Whitaker and Thomas Whitaker, heirs and representatives of Thomas
Whitaker, dec'd, of the first part and Abedengo Shelton of the
second part....whereas the aforesaid Whitaker heirs in virtue of
contract entered into by their father in his lifetime do....confirm
unto said Abedengo Shelton a certain tract or parcel of land....in
Butler Co. granted by commissioner certificate number 3099 in the
year 1798, containing 100 acres as appears by patent ....14 Dec
1813. Signed by Henry, David, Jinny, and Thomas (the Mark named was
Jinny's husband). In the record of inventory and sale of the estate
of Thomas Whitaker, the only Whitaker buyers were: livestock and
household goods by Henry, David, Mark and Jane/Gean. Since there
was no dower allotment for Isabel, it is assumed she predeceased
