  • Notes 
    • Father and mother had twelve children, some of whom died while young:

      1) Richard (myself) is the oldest
      2) William married but I have forgotten her name as he married after I left home, his residence is McDowell County NC
      3) Nelson married Elmira Finger, residence McDowell NC
      4) Sarah Ann married Jesse R. Mason, residence Georgia

      There was a child older than Sarah Ann but it died and was not named.
      5) Wilson, died at about age four
      6) Elizabeth married a Loughrun who was killed in Virginia; he was with General Lee, Elizabeth lives with Father.
      7) James Westlake died when about six years old
      8) Elvira married a Simmons (I think his name was James) residence McDowell NC
      9) John Whittaker was raised by Grandfather Maffitt and lived with him as long as he lived. After his death and that of Grandmother, Grandfather and Aunt Elizabeth lived together until 1862 when he and Nelson were conscripted and went into the Rebel army. The last I heard of him he was in Knoxville, Tennessee. Nelson was also in the same company but was discharged.
      10) Celina Matilda is single, lives with Father [2]
