RE: James Houtkamp.
Not related to the Houtkamp/Houtcamps, but I have Knickerbocker's in my family and was looking at the Knickerbocker connection.

Hutchins Cemetery
You have Peter and Helen Baragar spelled wrong, which makes them hard to find. The last name is BARAGAR not BARAGER

RE: Joseph Ebert

You had him in the correct cemetery in New Salem to begin with. Somebody decided to change it. If you don't want to manually change it, I have hopes that Find A Grave will.

RE: Edna Pauline (Whitehouse) Gifford
Thanks for the response.

Over the next few days, I'll also be adding edits to get them all linked, where appropriate, parents/kids, husband/wives.

My interest is mostly in the Whitehouses, Pauline's ancestors. She's descended from a guy (James Whitehouse) that came over from England in the 1780's, and landed in south central Kentucky. Pauline is descended from James' oldest son, Thomas Whitehouse (1779-1847). Her Whitehouse branch eventually drifted north, over the state line into southern Indiana. She graduated from DePauw in the mid 1930's, and while she was there, she had met Thomas Gifford, from Chicago. Apparently he became this big time lawyer in Chicago over the next 40 years.

That family seemed to have a fair amount of tragedy. Too bad, they see like nice people.

Oh, and by the way, my Whitehouse branch, in all of this, is from one of James' MIDDLE sons.

Thanks again,
