WHITSETT SCHOOL
ca 1901

The Whitsett School was located near the community of Wright in west Lauderdale County, AL on lands owned by Wilson Whitsett. According to the 1850 Census of Lauderdale County, AL, Wilson Whitsett was a farmer, born ca 1810 in SC. At that time, his land was valued at $2,000. Wilson Whitsett married Elizabeth Price, a daughter of Benjamin and Jane Eliza Price, 11 Feb 1830, Lauderdale County, AL. Wilson and his wife both died before 1 Feb 1882. Wilson and Elizabeth (Price) Whitsett had ten children and it is possible that some of those pictured above are their grandchildren. If you can identify any of these children, please e-mail me.
