Whetsel Family

Some documents refer to this family as “Whitsel”.

Jesse Whetsel and family were a restless bunch. In 1850 they appear in the Hardy County, VA census. By 1860, they were in Greene County, TN. And by 1870 they were living in Sullivan County, TN.

Jesse’s son Paulser married Margaritte/Margaret Jane Green.

Paulser’s son William married Melissa Ford. They bought property from James and Hannah Gragg in 1897. This explains how the Gragg cemeteries are located near Whetsel land in the 1916 survey map.

William’s son Orge married Lavada Quillen
