What's in a name?

Our chapter is named after Whiteside Station (formerly called Flannery's Fort) which was the home of William Whiteside. Whiteside was born about 1750 in Goochland County, Virginia (now Albemarle County). William Whiteside was one of nine brothers, most of whom served in the Revolutionary War, who came from North Carolina. William and most of his brothers emmigrated to Illinois. They settled in what became Monroe County. William, along with his sons and nephews, became noted Indian fighters in Illinois. William Whiteside died in 1815 at White Station. Whiteside Station was located between Columbia and Waterloo, Illinois.
