    Notes:

    From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=1715836&id=I00667, about Willis Worley and the cemetery he's buried in:

    "The cemetery is located within the sound of the roaring falls of the Cumberland River. Pioneer, Willis Worley, rests here under a rock canopy covered grave. His wife was Jane Prewitt. Jane had planned to buried here next to her husband, however, when she she died 6 years after him, the river was in flood stage and could not be crossed so she was buried at the Prewitt-Bryant Cemetery in Whitley County. This section was located in Whitley County in Willis Worley's time. He was a Whitley County Justice of the Peace for the district west of the river. He operated the boarding house at Cumberland Falls, before the Renfros came to the area, and performed marriage ceremonies for the people who came to the boarding hours."

    Willis married Jane Prewitt on 2 Aug 1824 in Whitley County, Kentucky. Jane was born on 4 Feb 1808 in Knox County, Kentucky; died on 10 Apr 1886 in Whitley County, Kentucky; was buried in Bryant and Prewitt Cemetery, Whitley, Kentucky. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    *****

    According to "familywest" on ancestry.com, his first marriage to Mary Hendrick is recorded in the Hendrick family Bible.

    *****

    From Ancestry of Elizabeth Louise White by Steven C. Perkins:

    He was probably born 1750-55, as Nancy Jonckheere states that in 1777 he sold land inherited from his father, Richard. Was this the 330 acres in Bute County that he was devised? At that time he was stated to be a planter from Craven County. CHECK

    He was probably born in Warren County, N.C., and about 1798 he came to the portion of Knox that is now Whitley County. He died between June and October 1829, based upon his appearance in Whitley County Court as a Commissioner in June and an Order in October that his son, Dempsey, return court records. CHECK whitley order book 1 for his signature. He is probably in an unmarked grave at Redbird; there is a marker for a John White, but the date of death appears to be 1896.

    A John White was a taxpayer in Warren County, North Carolina in 1784. North Carolina Taxpayers, supra, v.2, p.217. A John White was a purchaser at an estate sale in Franklin County, N.C., confirmed in June of 1796, Bradley, Will Book B of Franklin County, North Carolina 1784-1804, 929.375654 qB811b 1988, p.16 and at a sale on 10 January 1799, p.38.

    A John White is on the Knox tax rolls for 1804, with 300 acres of 2d class land on the Cumberland, 2 horses and 6 slaves. A John White appears in the 1810 and 1820 Knox County censuses, and in Lincoln County before that; a John White is on an 8/3/1790 Lincoln tax list. John White and John White, Sr. appear on an 1816 Knox County tax list. A John White appears on a 1788 Fayette County tax list, as do two Williams and a James. Some Pre-1800 Kentucky Tax Lists, supra, p.11. CHECK

    On 28 September 1826 he granted Demcey (sic) White (a Whitley County resident) a Power of Attorney to deal with legacies he might be entitled to from the estates of his father, Richard White, or his mother, Elizabeth, in Franklin County, North Carolina. Whitley County Deed Book 1, p.145-6. Mark White was stated to be the Executor of Richard and Sherrod Celly/Kinney the administrator of Elizabeth. Decker (p. 305) says that Knox County Revolutionary War Veterans included John White of Virginia, and says that he is thought to have settled in Knox in about 1804; if so, that would not [may not] be our John.

    *****

    The "Demcey" White mentioned above is almost certainly the Dempsey White who is recorded in Collins's History of Kentucky as a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives for Whitley County in 1833, 1835, 1838, and 1839; he was a son of this John White, and his daughter Nancy White (1838-1928) was the second wife of Patrick's greatX3-grandfather William Henderson Parker (1824-1898).
