George Frederick Whitmire (W8/1.3), was born about 1749 in Stuttgart, Wurttemberg-Baden of parents unknown.  He arrived in America at age 18 October 29, 1767 in the ship "Sally" which carried 62 passengers from Rotterdam, Netherlands via Cowes, Isle of Wight.  In the passenger list he was carried as "Georg Fried Wiedmayer, according to "Foreign Immigrants into Pennsylvania."  It is believed that he made the decision to emigrate partly at the instance of his mother who requested that he find his broth­ers and advise Michael Whitmire (W8/1.1) that their stepfather had recovered and that he was not a murderer.  Overdown Whitmire (W3/1.1) stated that he was influenced to immigrate by Peter Stuckman, his friend, who preceded him to American and who was probably the "Johannes Peter Stockman" who arrived in 1766 on the ship "Polly" from Amsterdam and Cowes.  They were neighbors again in South Carolina, according to Over­down Whitmire (W3/1.1).

 

He landed at Philadelphia and spent some time in the German community there.  Later he spent a short period of time in Baltimore, Maryland, according to the research of Mary Alnora "Nora" Cox Drennan (C2/10.4).

 

He was married in 1774 in District 96, South Carolina to Sarah Phoebe Hagood (H8/1.1), daughter of Rev. William Hagood (H9/1.1) who was born in Virginia in 1752. The Rev­erend Hagood was the son of Reuben Hagood (H10/1.1) and Phoebe Hagood.  They had moved from Virginia to Warren County, North Carolina and then to District 96 in 1772, ac­cording to "Jacob Clark of Abbeville, South Carolina" published in 1926 by Eva Turner Clark (T4/1.1).  Sarah Phoebe Hagood (H8/1.1) was described as a "Quaker born in Phil­adelphia" in "Whitmires of South Carolina" by Ann E. Hatton Lewis, however the Rever­end Hagood was a Baptist minister.

 

George Frederick Whitmire (W8/1.3) settled in Newberry District, South Carolina and bought a plantation there between Enoree River and Duncan's Creek in present-day Union County, South Carolina.  He received 960 acres of land as a gift from his father-in-law.  Their first residence was a primitive log cabin which he built. Later he con­structed a large, commodious home which served as a residence and a tavern.  The building was still standing after almost 200 years of continual use by the family.

 

He was a Revolutionary soldier and served under Gen. Levi Casey.  Indent No. 31924 was issued July 3, 1786 to "Frederick Whitmire for five pounds for duty as a private in Brandon's Regiment per account audited."  Overdown Whitmire (W3/1.1) reported that he was an impressive soldier, standing 6' 4" tall and weighing about 300 pounds.

 

He was enumerated there in the 1790 census as "Fred'k. Whitmire" living on his planta­tion.  His family consisted of "six males under 16, one male over 16 and two females."

 

"Frederic Whitmire" was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1800 census of Union District, South Carolina.  The family was reported as:

 

        "Whitmire, Frederic     white male      over 45

                                white female    over 45

                                white female    26-45

                                white female    16-26

                                white male      16-26

                                white male      10-16

                                white male       0-10"

 

George Frederick Whitmire (W8/1.3) established a trading post on his property, about 1801, and it was the forerunner of the town of Whitmire, South Carolina, population, 2,246 in 1970, located on the north edge of present-day Newberry County, according to Evelyn Whitmire, family researcher, who in 1968 lived in Leavenworth, Kansas.  The trading post has been preserved as Drucilla Whitmire Museum, according to "South Car­olina Guide Series."  A cottonmill was also built on the site by George Frederick Whitmire (W8/1.3).

 

Descendants report that George Frederick Whitmire (W8/1.3) often spoke of a longing to return to Germany and quoted him as saying that he owned property there, perhaps re­ferring to an inheritance.

 

He was a witness to the will of John Mumford October 26, 1811 in adjoining Laurens County, South Carolina, according to "Florida Pioneers" by David A. Avant.

 

Sarah Phoebe Hagood Whitmire (H8/1.1) died June 13, 1817, according to Nancy Jane Hin­kle Flesch (H3/7.7).  George Frederick Whitmire (W8/1.3) died in Newberry District June 23, 1829 at age 80.  Both were buried at Lower Duncan's Creek Baptist Church of which they were members.  The church was located about a mile from their plantation on Duncan's Creek.

 

Overdown Whitmire (W3/1.1) wrote that native granite stones were erected over their graves.  He stated, "Crudely chiseled on his stone was, "Geo. Fred. Whitmire, died June 23, 1829, aged 89 [80] years."  Her stone was inscribed "Phoebe Whitmire died June 13, 1827 [1817], aged 85 [65] years."  Detecting a problem with the dates [as he read them] he wrote, "The dates and ages on the grave-stones indicate that George Frederick Whitmire was born in 1740 and his wife in 1742, which might indicate that the date usually given for their marriage in 1774, may be a mistake.  Early marriages were the rule in those days, and seldom did people wait until their thirties to marry."  [His uncertainty about the date of birth suggests that the year of birth given in the immigration record is more reliable.]

She, a teacher, was married June 15, 1862 to George Hearst (H5/1.1) who was born Sep­tember 3, 1820 to William G. Hearst (H6/1.1) and Elizabeth Collins Hearst (C6/1.1).  He had participated in the California goldrush and was successful.  They removed to California where he parlayed his gold holdings into a large fortune in ranch and min­ing lands.  He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1886 and served until his death in 1893. 

 

Phoebe Elizabeth Apperson Hearst (A5/1.1) travelled extensively, studying art and lit­erature.  She became a generous patron of music and education.  She was the chief and at time the sole sponsor of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. 

 

After her husband's election to the Senate she transferred her philanthropies to Wash­ington.  The National Cathedral School and St. Albans School were founded by her.  She established a school for kindergarten teachers.  With Mrs. Theodore Birney of Georgia, she founded the National Congress of Mothers February 17, 1897.  In 1924 the organiza­tion changed its name to National Congress of Parents and Teachers.

 

Following her husband's death she returned to California and served as the first woman regent of the University of California at Berkeley and gave more than a million dol­lars to the University.  Libraries and kindergartens in Hearst mining areas in Utah, North Dakota and Montana were also included in her benefactions.

Their papers were deposited in Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley.

 

One son was born to them:

 

        William Randolph Hearst         (H4/1.1)        born in April 1863

 

William Randolph Hearst (H4/1.1), son of George Hearst (H5/1.1) and Phoebe Elizabeth Apperson Hearst (A5/1.1), was born in April 1863 in San Francisco.  He enrolled in Harvard University and remained two years, becoming interested in journalism.  On his return to California in 1887 he took control of the "San Francisco Examiner" which his father had purchased for political purposes.  He was married about 1888, wife's name Millicent.

 

In 1895 he bought the "New York Morning Journal" which he made a one-cent newspaper. In 1900 he established the "Chicago American," in 1902 the "Chicago Examiner", and in 1904 "the Boston American."  He served in the House of Representatives from 1903 to 1907 and ran unsuccessfully for mayor of New York in 1905.  In 1907 he was defeated in a campaign for the governor's office of New York.  By 1925 he owned newspapers in ev­ery section of the nation in addition to several magazines, including "Cosmopolitan," "Good Housekeeping" and "Harper's Bazaar."

 

He became infatuated with Marian Davies, a starlet on the Broadway stage.  When she became his mistress he catapaulted her career into movie fame, according to "The Hearst-Davies Affair" which was telecast in January 1985 by the American Broadcasting Company.  His holdings just after World War I were enormous, but living on a princely estate at San Simeon, California and buying antiques and art on a munificent scale he strained even his large income.  The long depression beginning in 1930 endangered his empire.

 

He had to assign control of many of his newspapers to a banking house trusteeship, but after 10 years they emerged to profitability again.  A great part of his art treasures were sold off in 1941.  He died at Beverly Hills, California August 14, 1951.
