The family tree of Dr. William Heth Whitsitt taken from "Annals of a Scotch-Irish Family: The Whitsitt's of Nashville, Tenn. published in 1904

Descendants of William Whitsitt
Nashville, Tennessee

Much of the following information is from Dr. William Heth Whitsitt's, "Annals of a Scotch-Irish Family: The Whitsitt's of Nashville, Tenn.," American Historical Magazine, Vol. IX, Nashville, Tennessee, 1904. I have added additional information that was located during my research of the Whitsett family history. Dr. Whitsitt's history of the very early family was based records or the knowledge of Margaret Whitsitt Blakey.  It is reasonable to assume that Mrs. Blakey's information was passed on to her by her father and is probably reliable. See Samuel Whitsett of Ireland for some of that early history.

23.   Dr. William Crawford Whitsett (William2, William1, William-1, William-2, Samuel-3) was born August 3, 1812 in Kentucky, and died January 9, 1883 in Bonham, Fannin County, Texas.

Cecil Coale in "Sim and Hade Whitsett" wrote: Dr. Whitsett was a farmer and physician in the Shiloh Community about 8 miles south east of Bonham. This is Dodd City today. He and his family came there from Kentucky about 1853. The Fannin county census of 1850 shows Dr. Whitsett living on the farm of Mr. Dodd. His family had not yet arrived in Texas. Dr. Whitsett's date of death is from the Edmunds' family Bible.

The dates of birth and death from the Edmunds' Bible may be questionable, although Joseph's date of birth in relation to his siblings appears to be correct, or nearly so.
