Just found a whole passel of my Whortons in Navarro County, TX.

For years, I've looked for them as Whartons.

Apparently, Jeptha Whorton - son of Thomas Jefferson Wharton (1800-1894) - was the one of the children to change the spelling of the surname in my direct line.

So, they've been under my nose for a long time...
