message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I would like to explore this. My mother is descended from the Whiteside line, though the name was changed to Whitsett around 1800. The last one who is directly in my line is Mary Polly Whitsett, born May 31, 1802, in Montgomery County, Kentucky, and died April 12, 1869, in Lafayette County, Missouri. Her father was Joseph Whiteside, born 1774 in Pennsylvania. The question that amuses me is whether my parents were distant.
