Go to www.ancestry.com/ Type in Michael Whidden, and then when the results come up, go to phone listings. There are 5 in Florida, 1 in Texas and 1 in MA. I hope one of them is yours. Good luck!

It was cut out ot Manatee County with the county seat in Pine Level. The first meeting held in the new county was on July 1887, to vote on a new county seat. An election was held in December of the same year, but it failed to bring a majority vote. Sources reveal there was a yellow fever outbreak that quarantined many communities, so a second vote was postponed. On August 4, 1888, a second vote was taken and again failed to produce a majority vote. Finally, on November 6, 1888, a third vote was taken and Arcadia won the county seat by 21 votes.

John McDuffie, 16, was listed as "hired help" also lived with the Whiddens.

According to Edward Whidden, David's daughter Gabriella Whidden (born in 1881) was living in Zolfo Springs, Hardee County, Florida, in the household of her brother-in-law, William C. Crews.
