    William Whiteside c.1710-1777

    William Whiteside (c.1710-1777) married Elizabeth Stockton, a daughter of Davis Stockton of Albemarle County, Virginia. William was born about 1710, probably in Ireland. His will is dated 24 Oct 1777. It appears that he died in what is now Rutherford County, North Carolina.

    William (c.1710-1777) is commonly shown as William Whiteside, Sr., but it does not appear that he ever used that name and his father might also have been a William.
