Hi Melissa:

You have much more information than I do!

I haven't been able to find my WILLIAM DOOLITTLE and wife, MARTHA FRANCES McDANIEL in any census data at all. I keep seeing this 1900 DeWitt County, Illinois census on everyone else's research, but I sure can't find them there in 1900 on

As far as photos....I wouldn't know! I have many old photos that I have yet to identify. They were in a box that was handed down from my G-G-Grandmother. I've found that there are quite a few pictures of the McDaniel's, and I could have pics of Martha Frances McDaniel-Doolittle.
I just wouldn't know, though.

Here's what I have on the DOOLITTLE side. Might be something you don't have, or something we need to research further.....

WILLIAM DOOLITTLE, born 1790, NY, died in Crawford Co., IL (unknown date), married about 1810, NY, to HANNAH WILLISON. She was born 1788, NY.

~3) LAVINA NINA "Vina" "Verna" DOOLITTLE, b.5/1856, Hutsonville, Crawford Co., IL, Married 12/31/1871 or 1874 (two different marriage records at, to CLINTON EVANS, son of Noah Evans and Martha Bell. Clinton was born 7/1848, Hutsonville, Crawford Co., IL.

~~~2) NANCY C. DOOLITTLE, b.1923, IL
~~~3) ELISE M. DOOLITTLE, b.1926, IL
(1930 Glendale, Los Angeles Co., CA Census)

If I could only find whether William Doolittle and Martha McDaniel had any kids....they just seem to disappear.
I also have POSTLEWAITE's in my files that connect to SEANEY's in Crawford County, IL. Interesting!

I'll be happy to help you if I can. Just let me know.
Other that what I have here, I'm at a brick wall with William Doolittle and Martha McDaniel.
