2 Records are so far silent as to the origins of John McWhorter [db#708] of Albemarle County, Virginia. It is generally assumed, however, that he was born in Ireland. A few researchers assert that John of Albemarle County was the same John McWhorter who came to America about 1733 and settled a land grant on Yellow Beeches Creek in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. 

What is known is that John McWhorter was in Albemarle County, VA by 23-Aug-1745 when a petition he filed against a Daniel Latimer was dismissed. On 14-May-1747 John became firmly established in Albemarle County when he purchased from a James McCanne 120 acres of land in that part of the county which is today Nelson County, VA.
