Thanks, Mary Ann(Perigo) > Lindsay in CA. (malincal@metro.net) I have two lines of descent from John and Elinor (-----) WHITNEY. One goes John-1, John-2, Nathaniel-3, Hannah-4 (mar. Nathaniel BILLING). The other goes John-1, Benjamin-2, Joshua-3, Gershom-4, Sarah-5 (mar. Jonathan FLAGG). I have quite a few genealogical records about the John and Elinor WHITNEY family before 1800 in New England in which I would be willing to do look-ups. I am also interested in verifying and expanding the said data. It was collected while trying to esatblish that second line, which I believe I have successfully done. In that sense, *my* search is over. Regards, Robert L. Ward <img src="/robertward.gif"> 12236 Shadetree Lane, Laurel, MD 20708-2832 (301)776-1659
