Most of the people I have contributed to on the site are relatives, distant relatives, or in-laws. I think they all deserve to be remembered in a special way. |
I would like to share my unfortunate genealogy sharing experience @ http://www.http://speakingmymind.webs.com
I would also very much like to thank everyone who has left flowers or contributed photos to my loved one's memorials. I really appreciate them and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless.

No I didn't know him, I'm familiar with the Book "Class of '67" and know the author Jack Wells (LtCol Ret'd). I just returned from a reunion in San Diego where he was also in attendance. We will Never forget our Fallen"

James and Mary were famine Irish who arrived at the port of St. John's Bay Canada. They married in Canada. They continued to Kent, Ohio; however James is missing in the next census in Kent Ohio at approximately 1870. They had the child named Margaret.If you would like to know more; please contact me or if you could send me more information I would appreciate it if you would share that with me.

|KatieMac||RE: James Whitfield Kilvert Cemetery|
My mother was a Whitfield, but as far as I know not related to this family. They seem to have been free persons of color out of Southampton County VA. Something I found online led me to believe that the original free Whitfields of that county had belonged to the family of Benjamin Whitfield a son of the Thomas Whitfield branch (I descend from Matthew who may or may not have been related). Ben Whitfield freed a number of his slaves early in the 19th Century from whom James and his father Shadrack may have descended. That is the only free family of Whitfields I could find prior to Shadrack showing up in Ohio and marrying Anabelle Holbert (also of a free family) in Columbiana. The timing of their arrival may have been precipitated by the Nat Turner rebellion, 1831, after which there were Black Laws passed in reprisal. Seems like a number of these free families decided to move north right around that time. I had no idea there were so many free persons of color in the South, nor that they actually had voting rights, if property owners, as many were. Those rights were revoked in part of these Black Laws, in the north as well as in the south. I only stumbled onto this because of an inquiring I received on my McDonald-Whitfield family tree on Ancestry from a person whose family owned Shadrack's old farm and who used to care for the cemetery stones of Shadrack & Anabelle. Once I got to digging into the family and found all this fascinating new history of free Blacks so early in our history I got carried away looking for his descendants and found Kilvert Cemetery.

James was the son of Shadrack Whitfield and Anabelle Holbert of Barlow Twsp, Washington, Ohio, both originally from Virginia. I notice there are Holberts in Kilvert as well and likely they are Anabells' nieces and nephews. Anabelle was the dau of John and Susannah Holbert who as early as 1830 were free people of color inFrederick, VA.
