Dear Judi,
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.
