This site is dedicated to all those who trace their ancestry to the Wharton's of Philadelphia and the allied families that played such a major role in the early life of Philadelphia and the nation. Here you can find tales of early Wharton's, links to contemporary cousins and if you are so inclined help solve a mystery or two. I also hope you will get involved, email me with links, solutions to mysteries, additions to the cousins and of course corrections. But, please if you have a correction be sure to give me the source that proves the error! Our hope is to make this a reliable site for the Whartons of Philadelphia line. If there is a question (hence not proven) about a lineage I will post it here for discussion.
Please come back often as this page is very much under construction, with lines being added daily. For a note on sources and some great links click now. SOURCES
