    I was hoping if there is any more info on this Whitehurst line? I have a line I’m researching with native american background that I suspect is through my Whitehurst line and found I do have Whitehurst in Princess Anne at that time. My mothers ancestry kit shows native north and they ended up in Albemarle, Charlottesville and Roanoke Va. She has several matches to participants in various Va tribes and trying to find closest connection. If anybody could help me I’d really appreciate it and can show the sources and tree and decendants. My line is through Laura (Whitehurst) Boone, her sister Mary E. (Whitehurst) Terrell named her child Virginia Pocahontas in the 1800s and our dna connections match with Taptico Wicocomico line (they have been y tested and Q haplogroup), also have some Bass matches in Nansemond project, and matches in other Va tribes. Would like to find more Whitehurst and related lines that have dna tested.

      vaboone757 I have a connection to the Whitehurst family in Princess Anne and Norfolk County, VA as well. I also connect with some Basses from Norfolk Co., VA. My Smith line goes back to Norfolk Co, VA area in the 1700’s. My Y-Paternal Line is Native American Haplogroup Q-L456. What Whitehurst’s and Basses do you match or have in your tree and how far back do they go?
