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...

So I see a Whorton obit in the paper yesterday...

One thing leads to another, and...

She's not one of mine, but I've done a lot of work this morning on my Wharton/Whortons.

Now, I really must get a shower.
