|143||(Research):Conrad was the first WILHOIT to come from Virginia to East Tennessee, in 1781. In Washington Co., TN, on 19 April 1782, he witnessed the will of Adam Broyles. It appears that most, if not all, of the WILHITE/WILHOIT's in East Tennessee are descended from him. On 29 Mar 1800 (as Conrad WILHITE) he bought 100 acres of land from John Love. This land was found lying in Powell's Valley, at the head waters of Indian Creek in Grainger Co., TN (today Campbell Co., TN).|
On 15 March 1772 "Connard Wilhoit" purchases 139 acres of land from Adam and Mary Broyles in Culpeper County, VA On 13 April 1777, Conrad and Elizabeth are recorded as sponsors at the baptism of Michael Broyles, son of Michael. On 21 April 1776 Elizabeth "Wilheitin" (sp) is a witness of the christening of Matheus Breil, Jr. On 21 August 1775 Conrad sold 100 acres of land to his brother, Michael. The land is described as lying on the branches of Deep Run in Culpeper County, Virginia. This was probably the land that Conrad inherited from his father's will (Will Book A, pg. 28 and Deed Book H, pg. 111). This was the last record found on Conrad in Virginia. About 1780, Conrad and family moves to Washington County, TN (now Campbell County). On 19 April 1782 Conrad witnesses the Will of Adam Broyles in Washington County. On 2 August 1783 Conrad witnesses two deeds on the Little Limestone from Joseph Bullar to Nicholas Broyles. According to the North Carolina Revolutionary War Accounts, Conrad was issued Specie for one pound, fourteen shillings on 12 June 1783 in Sullivan County, NC (now TN). According to notes in the "Wilhoit-Wilhite Connections" Conrad may have been at the Battle of King's Mountain (Volume IX, Number 1, page 445). On 26 October 1786 Conrad buys land that is located along the border of Washington County and Greene County, Tennessee. On 10 November 1794 "Mathias Broils and Conrad Woohight" patent 200 acres of land on the south side of the Nolachuka River in Washington County (now Campbell County). This land is described as adjoining the land of John Wadel. On 16 January 1796 Conrad signs as security for the marriage of his daughter, Rosina, to Isacc Wilson in Greene County, Tennessee. In May 1796 Conrad is named to a road committee in Greene County. In 1797 Conrad is taxed for 200 acres of land. On 29 March 1800 Conrad buys 100 acres of land from John Love. The land is described as lying in Powell's Valley on the headwaters of Indian Creek in Grainger County, Tennessee (now Campbell County). Conrad died before March 1806 in Campbell County, Tennessee. The last record found for Conrad is an indenture made on 17 February 1809 between Hugh Montgomery on one part and Simeon Wilhite and Henry McKinney, Executors of the Last Will and Testament of Conrad Wilhite, deceased ,on the other part selling 100 acres of land in Campbell County. Conrad's will is said to have been probated in 1806 in Campbell County but it has not been located. The listing of his children was obtained from the Family Bible of Stephen Wilhite in "Germana Record Number 13," October 1971.
