We communicated awhile back about my GGGGGG grandfather Timothy Whitehead Sr. and you emailed me a copy of a page from David Whitehead's diary. Have you found out more about this family? You told me you were planning a trip to the Springfield, NJ area. Did you make the trip?
Also, why would Timothy Sr. object to James' enlistment as a drummer boy?Sons of Timothy Sr., Elias and Timothy Jr., both were Patriots and involved in the American Revolution. There is documentation that George Washington was a Timothy Whitehead Jr.'s house at around the time of the Battle of Springfield.
