  • William Whitley

    I'm trying to reach descendants of WW, died in the battle of thames, 1813. I know this is not a genealogy site, but didn't know where to start. Anybody out there?

    A good start, possibly! (Linky)


    Read post number 2, as well! You may be related.

    Haven't seen much of him for awhile, but he gets around from time to time.

    Quite a knowledgable mate, too!


    If I may be of assistance, let me know...

    Welcome aboard, Lass!

                I am not a descendant of William Whitley but my 5th great-grandfather was a neighbor of his in Lincoln County, Kentucky. He also rode with him in the journey to Michigan from Kentucky to liberate Frenchtown (just south of Detroit) and Detroit from the British during the war of 1812. My 5th great grandfather Moses Hodges also charged the Indians in the battle of Thames in 1813 Oct 5, he was a part of the Forlorn hope group, a group of twenty men volunteering to charge first charge on the Indians in the Battle. I believe almost 15 of the twenty were severely wounded or killed in this charge. My Moses Hodges being one of the severely wounded(he did survive) and William Whitley being killed by some say Chief Tecumseh?

                        You've walked into a "tiger pit" of historical questions. Seems your best question has been answered. Family was in the County by 1827, but I have nothing to add.

                              It seems Whitley has drawn quite a crowd!
