Bessie, don't know if you remember us or not, but we just heard about Ken's passing last week. My Dad passed away last year, also. Seems like the good ones are all gone! Hope you are well.

Whitney line
Bessie - I found this on Google Books:

"History of Gorham, ME" by Hugh Davis McLellan. If you have not seen this - there is a large chapter concerning the Whitney line. Try to paste the link into your browser. I searched the name Edgecomb - for Rebecca, wife of David and parents of Nathan whose memorial you maintain.

Unfortunately, the ability to convert to text is not available for this particular book. Not sure if you've used Google Books. I did a print screen and emailed it to myself to transcribe later.

Nathan Whitney #32766083
Bessie - I don't think you will mind, but I wanted you to know that I just placed a JPEG of a document on this memorial site. It is a copy of the birth record of Nathan Whitney. I am not a descendant, but my granddaughters are - their other grandmother's maiden name was Whitney. This document shows Nathan was the 7th child of David and Rebecca Whitney.

Dessman Gumm
When adding the link to Dessman's mother as you requested, I found the memorial #113431078 to be someone other than the name you listed. After doing a search I found #115431078 to be the correct number. The link has been added.

Madora A. Six Powell Allen
I see you have a memorial for Madora so I have removed mine. I also see you have already found the info I found on WV Archives. If you want me to add the photo I have of her headstone let me know.
Thanks, Jim
