Bio and Links
Bio Photo My DNA test results confirm what I felt was true.

I am a descendant of Samuel Whitney (circa 1615-1674) who came from England to the Bermuda Islands in the 1630's. His grandson Joshua later immigrated to Isle Of Wright, Virginia.

There are three principle immigrants who came to the United States in the 1600's

Each of the following have distinct y-dna marker differences.

John Whitney - Watertown, Massachusetts
Henry Whitney - Long Island, New York
Samuel Whitney - The Bermuda Islands

I, and my genetic cousin Tara have co-authored The Whitney Newsletter. The Whitney newsletter is intended to reach Whitney families in the United States. I want to connect every Whitney to their rightful immigrant.

Issue one was sent out this month 11/2011.
If you know of any Whitney families or their lineages please contact me. Take into consideration that I have studied countless Whitney lines. Do not trust everything you see on 50% (or more) of what you find about Whitney's is wrong, or absolutely provides no clues to the present for establishing contact with disconnected Whitney lines.

Max Woolsey
In your memorial for Max R. Woolsey (53990232) you have his wife as a Mattie buried in Oklahoma. It should be Mary F. Wollsey (53990231) buried in Midway Cemetery.
Thank you

Thank you for the information on my grandmother. Would it be possible to turn it over to me?

You are so right about Ancestry! It is a good website to use because you can get good information from the hints, but sometimes the hints have the wrong person.

Richard H. Easley, d. 1878
You have a entry for the above man.

The date of birth listed is for a different Richard Easley. It belongs to Richard Easley, son of Daniel and Edith (Anderson) Easley, who was born in Halifax Co., VA, and settled in Fulton Co., IL. That Richard Easley married Richard Valentine. The mother, Edith Anderson, was from a Quaker family. Daniel Easley freed his slaves and took them to Harrison Co., OH. I have a lot of accumulated data on that different branch of the Easley family.

Barrier Cemetery
Hi, Grady! THANK YOU for YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS, here! They are very much appreciated, Sir.

I see you photographed a tombstone for the Barrier Cemetery in Omaha, Texas.

Was the marker illegible?

I am looking for a relative in this vicinity who passed away in 1879 - Olivia Green Burge - my GG Grandmother; thus, my curiosity.

Beautiful picture, by the way!

Any help you could provide would be much appreciated.
