Thomas H. Whitfield (1839-?) 
"T. H. Whitfield was born December 17, 1839, and is the son of M. (sic) Whitfield and Agnes (Boan) (sic) Whitfield.  The father of our subject was born in the year 1811, and his mother in the early part of the present century.  They were both natives of this state.  Our subject is a miller by profession, and has followed this trade from early boyhood.  In 1866 he began milling for Ringgold Mills, of this county, and has been regularly employed there ever since.  He is an extra fine miller, and to him the people of Montgomery County are indebted for the extra quality of flour they receive from the mill.  He is an honest, upright man, as all say who have any dealings with him.  His flour competes with the best made in the county."
