Sarah d. 1811.  According to the application, James Whittington fought in the Watkins Point Co,. of the Princess Anne Batalion of the Somerset County Militia (see original Militia List page 189 at the Maryland Historical Society, Balitmore, MD). 

      The DAR line shows the following:

      William Whittington b 1740 m Priscilla Polk b 1740
      James Whittington b 1765 m Sarah Coulborne d 1811
      Margaret Whittington b abt 1804 m Thomas Bothum d abt 1843
      Anna Maria Whittington Bothum b 1825 m John Selby Goslee b 1821
      Emily Goslee b 1849 m Thomas Barton Freeney b1859
      Thomas Barton Freeney b 1884 m Sara Jane Webster b 1887
      Sara Marguerite Freeney b 1911 m W L Howard b 1906  

      The GHOTES web site shows his parents to be William Whittington and Priscilla Polk, but differ in the name of his wife and in the names of his descendants.

(Sarah Lawson appears in the DAR application as James' second wife m. 21 Nov 1814).
