This is a fully researched, comprehensive history of the descendants of Thomas & Martha Whittington of Bedford County, Virginia. More than twenty years of research went into this book. It includes over 5,000 names of descendants and their spouses who originally migrated to Kanawha, Mason and Putnam Counties, West Virginia and Calloway County, Missouri, as well as those who remained in Bedford County, Virginia. Almost every Whittington from Kanawha, Mason and Putnam Counties is part of this family, which has been traced to the mid-1700's. Descendants are now spread throughout the United States. This is the first genealogy of its kind to be published about this family.
Because of the marriages of the female Whittingtons, there are many other surnames included in the book. Some of the more well-known names in Kanawha, Mason, and Putnam Counties are: Atkins, Birchfield, Carpenter, Carson, Casto, Cornell, Craig, Cundiff, Cunningham, Davis, Fisher, Fowler, Frye, Garrison, Henry, Hull, Jividen, Johns, Johnson, King, Love, Martin, Oldaker, Parcell, Parsons, Reed, Reedy, Runnion/Runyon, Spradling, Thornton, Trador, Tucker, Walters, Wears, Young and many more. Those most well-known in Bedford County are: Alcock, Alford, Garrett, Kabler, Overstreet, Scott and Spradling.
