Subject: RE: Brown Co IL Cemetery book look
ups please. At your convenience
Here are the cemetery
listings you requested. My husband, Ken, is a descendant of the Whited family.
John (Thomas) Whited (1828-1920) who married Eliza Gifford (1829-1905), was a
brother to Ken's 3gg father, Isaac Whited. John T. and Isaac are two children of
Thomas Whitehead and Mary Waters of Pennsylvania. Ken is also a descendant of
the Gifford family, so he has a double connection with these listings. In the
final paragraph I have used our own records to clarify a Cooperstown Cemetery
family relationships entry.
