Searching for any information on this family form Enfield
NC that had a platation in pre-civil war days.
When the family freed the slaves the slaves moved about 10 miles south
(some or all of them did) and their community became named
Whitakers NC because the slaves took on the name of the
family they were endentured to.This is my paternal grandmothers side
of the family and I also know that one of these Whitakers eventually baptized
Pocohontas in the Potomac many years prior at Jamestown,Va.

I am also a descendant of the Whitaker family. My grandmother and some other family members are in the DAR and have done a lot of research on the family history. Though most of the information is either in my Grandmothers head and not written down yet or documented on DAR paperwork which is not easy for the family to transcribe, she is working diligently to write it out in a way that the family can understand. Once she does this, I am going to publish it. In the meantime, I am trying to gather information for our family web page on Any information that you have would be helpful and I will share information in return. I do know that my distant relative, Rev. John Whitaker baptized Pocahontis. I have a picture of the painting that is in the rotunda of the Capitol Building. My family is from Rocky Mount, NC. Some of my family attends the Whitaker Chapel Family Reunion each year in Enfield, NC. As a matter of fact, it is coming up on June 11th. I will be going this year for the first time. Please e-mail me at with any information you have. I look forward to hearing from you.

Louryne-I'm from this Whitaker line too & would be happy to share info. What was the full name of the Whitaker master, do you know? I have Whitaker's that moved to Sarasota, FL, Jacksonville and other areas from NC, SC and GA. I'm curious to know if your family moved from NC to FL as well?

I look forward to your reply!
