  • Whitney - Ballard, Barrett, Betts, Bray, Case, Ellsworth, Essley, Hayes, Gould, Hughes, Johnson, Jones, Kilts, Lake, Loomis, McMillen, Messenger, Osgood, Palmer, Patterson, Phelps, Raymond, Smith, Troester and Aligned Families

    We do genealogy research on our families because we love the research and satisfaction we get when we find someone new. However much of the information contained in this document includes research notes or possible family members that one source or another (as yet unconfirmed) have led us to. We have included these people so that others may further research if they so desire.

    Any or all of the information contained herein is subject to change if new information arrives that we feel has better, more compelling sources of information. Much of the information gleened today is over the internet. This is both a blessing and a curse. We can find data very quickly, but much of it is not sourced or incorrectly sourced and due to the nature of the internet, if the other party determines a piece of information is incorrect they may or may not correct in the source we are reviewing, and they certainly are under no obligation to notify us if the details have changed. We do however hope that you will take the time to let us know if you find any errors or omissions within the pages we present here.

    We've posted our genealogy files to rootsweb databases for your viewing. In some cases we've included ties that we can not substantiate but which we feel strongly is accruate. See our Notes / Research Notes for clarification on those items. Information can be accessed by clicking one of the links below:
