      See also: Hillhouse. A History of Burke County, published in 1985: "Sometime before 1765 Thomas Whitehead brought from Orange County, N.C. his large family: wife Alice; one daughter Sarah; and seven sons: Reason, Thomas, Jacob, Amos, Charles, Caleb and John. At the time of his death, Thomas Whitehead, the original settler, owned 220 acres on Brier Creek. Later when the cotton gin and slave labor made large plantations feasible, the holdings of his descendants would extend some fifteen miles along the western bank of Brier Creek."

      Recheck reference for John Whitehead: INVENTORIES Liber 39, Folio 185. Entry is for Samuel Whitehead and not John Whitehead. Next of kin is John Shweres, a surname of German origin, rarely found in Maryland records, with variant spellings of Shwer, Schwere, Schwiere, etc. Is it possible that John Shweres is a son-in-law, and there is at least one daughter born to Charles Whitehead?
