In Reply to: WHITAKER WILLIAM AND IDELLA by Gilly of 372

To Gilly. William and Idella Whitaker are my great grandparents. They are buried in Stafford Springs, CT along with four of their children who died in infancy or childhood, and my great aunt Ethel, who lived to old age. Idella died in 1948 and William in 1956. My grandfather, Richard Whitaker, was their second-youngest child. He died in 1978. My great aunt Ethel is the only other one I knew. She married late in life to Walter Parkhurst. He was my maternal grandmother's brother. (Richard's sister Ethel married Richard's wife's brother.) I never knew anything about Elizabeth or Heildreth, but will ask my mother. Their graves are not here. At this time I don't know Idella's maiden name, but if my mother does, I will post another message. Are we related?
