Description
"Five Hundred Years in the New World, Vol. I: WHARTON/WHORTON & Allied Families of North Carolina & Beyond, 1684–2021" details the genealogy and background of the descendants of David Wharton and Mary Hobbs. Beginning in Craven and Pamlico counties in eastern North Carolina in 1684, the records follow members of the family as they move to Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, California, Texas, and many other states. This book highlights eight generations of the Wharton family, including the surnames Broughton, Cahoon, Cuthrell, Jones, Kittrell, Lupton, Martin, McCotter, Paul, Phipps, Riggs, Silverthorn, Slade, Stanton, Tingle, and Woodard. Author Lynn Hughes Akin, Ed.D., has provided a great reference for those researching their family history or those interested in genealogy in general. Follow the history of the Wharton family from the late 17th century until present day. Hughes Akin has set out to follow the evidence. Many families have legends that have been passed down from member to member, but with historical records, it is possible that details were missed or misconstrued along the way. This is the challenge of familial research. In her effort to capture as full a picture of the family as possible, the author has meticulously researched each member of the Wharton family included in this book. All pertinent data has been recorded using simple genealogy research techniques available, including registers, wills, marriage records, death records, censuses, graves, and more.
About the author
Lynn Hughes Akin, Ed.D., has been researching her family since the mid-1980s. She is a graduate of multiple universities with a doctorate in leadership and curriculum. In her 30-plus-year career as an educator, she has taught at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. When not in the classroom, she researches genealogy in her spare time. This branch of her family tree can only be proven from 1684 to the present, but other branches have gone back further in time, and she plans to record those for posterity as well.
