It sounds to me like it is a possibility that we are working on the same line, Although it looks like you were able to come up with more information than I have found so far. From what I have pieced together, there was a big split in the family somewhere, and most of the family information didn't filter down through my line. I do know that part of the family fought in the Civil War as part of the Union and another part fought for the Confederates. I don't know if this was the cause of the split or a result of the split.
The information that I have only goes back as far as William R. Whitehead born Aug 26, 1848 in Missouri, married Elizabeth Rector Nov 26, 1848 in Platte County, Missouri, and died Sep 06, 1890 and is burried in Matfield-Green, Kansas. I don't have his parents names, but Elizabeth's parents are Jesse and Susannah Rector.
William and Elizabeth had 8 children:
Jeanette L., nbd
Henrietta Maud, nbd
Gertrude, nbd
Bessie Edna, nbd
Fannie, nbd
John T., b. c.1872
William Harvey, b. Jan 20, 1875 in Kansas
Arthur Everett, b. Jan 05, 1879 in Kansas

Arthur Everett is my GGGrandfather.

I am supossed to be getting some more information from my aunt Rita that was passed on to her from my great-aunt Hilda before long, so there might be something that will help there.

If this information listed above sounds like it might be a tie let me know. Please be patient with me as I am in the middle of moving and it may take a little time to respond.
Thanks, John
