Children of Henry Wilfong [Jr.] and Mary Karahoof

Children of Henry Wilfong [Jr.] and Martha Pritt

     Verbatim, From "The History of Upshur County West Virginia", by W. B. Cutright, quote: "Ashley Wesley Wilfong, a farmer in the Union District, was born December 1, 1847, son of Henry Wilfong and Martha Pritt. grandson of Henry Wilfong and the great grandson of John Wilfong. Legend has it that John Wilfong, the great grandfather of the Wilfong family, when very young, was taken, raised and started into life by a German of Bath County, Va., and through gratification of an eccentricity of this German, who raised the boy, he was named, or rather, re-named, Wilfong, and what his original family name was, his descendants here do not know.15 Henry Wilfong Jr. was a soldier in the Mexican war.2 The author believes, without firm proof, that Ashley Wesley Wilfong and Ashley Pritt are one and the same person. Ashley Pritt is shown in 1860 Census in the same household with Henry Wilfong and Martha Pritt. The same story goes for William Alonzo Wilfong and William Pritt, who was also shown in the same 1860 census.

It seems clear that Ashley and William are shown as Pritts in this census because their mother was not married to Henry Wilfong when they were born.16 From the HISTORY OF THE SAGO COMMUNITY, Prepared By E. R. Grose 1926:

"The Henry Wilfong family settled on the waters of Truby's Run before the Civil War. In this family were several children; namely, George, Samuel Henry, John, Daniel, Columbus, Bilda, Phillip, Abraham, Mary Elizabeth, Loise, Tilda, and Loretta.

Four of the boys, George, Samuel Henry, John, and Daniel, served as soldiers in the Civil War on the Union side. Samuel Henry lost his life in the service of his country.

The family is noted for its industry and has added largely to the development of the Truby's Run locality."17 Henry Wilfong [Jr.] was also known as John Wilfong.18 Henry Wilfong [Jr.] was also known as Henry Wilflong.6 He and Mary Karahoof appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Lewis, Virginia, enumerated 14 August 1850. Their child Eli was listed as living with them.6 Henry Wilfong [Jr.] and Martha Pritt appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Upshur, West Virginia, enumerated 18 July 1860. Their children Josiah and Robert were listed as living with them.7
