Kentucky Ancestors Magazine (Vol 9, No 1 July 1973 by C.T. McWhorter) TWO OF THE FIRST McWHORTER FAMILIES IN KENTUCKY: "George McWhorter, born in Albemarle Co., Va. in 1752, moved with his family headed by his mother Eleanor to S.C. in 1766.... He had four (4) children, sons Abner and John, and daughters Eleanor and --- who married brothers Adam and Amos Morris.... After the war {of 1812}, Abner came back to Ky. to live, settling in Pulaski or Russell Co. John remained in Lincoln Co., Tenn. for a while, but he returned to Ky. We believe to Pulaski or Casey Co., leaving his son William in Tenn.... William McWhorter married Polly Moore 1818-1819. Their children were John, James, William M., Joshua, Thomas, Mary, Sally, and Elizabeth (Polly Ann). William M. died in Texas 1859, Joshua died in Texas 1862, Thomas died in Texas 1865 (copied from my grandfather's Bible). No information on their families. / Sally (no children) married Dr. Lair, died in Texas. "
