Mr. Whitfield was the builder of Joyce Chapel and the Goosepond Cumberland Presbyterian Church. It is reported he was a large property owner in Scottsboro. Mr. Whitfield was Black and is buried along side his wife in the old Black portion of the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Scottsboro, Al. It appears Mr. Whitfield died after his wife in 1929.
