Wanting to find someone related to my Daniel Wightman/Whitman or anyone having information on his family.
I have all the information I need right now for the direct line, but am looking for Daniel and Wife and all 8 children? *Find my direct line below from 1480 - 1840* I have details of everyone else except Daniel. The spelling of Daniel's last name started off as Wightman than by the time he was another age it went to Whitman (Not sure why?) but it is the same Daniel.
Daniel was born 17 Oct 1808 had a wife by the name Eliza Degraw m. in 1831
Daniel was born in Steventown, Rennselaer Co., NY He is buried in Jefferson Cemetery, Green Co., Iowa His obits make mention of out living all his children except his son Charles Otis Whitman. His wife shows died in 1880
Out of the 8 children We have 3 - Helen, Clarria, Charles Daniel Father: George Wightman b. 1760 Daniel Mother: Mary
Daniel Obits also mention his travel in his years. Living in Steventown, NY until the age of 19, than went to Columbia Co., NY, then at the age of 24 moved to Livingston County, NY where he met his wife, Eliza De Graw in 1831, by 1841 he moved to Jefferson Co., Pennsylvania, In 1855 he started to Iowa and appears to remain there until his death.
For the direct line of Fathers it starts with 1480 - ends with 1840 for the birth of these men.
(1st generation)Thomas Wightman b. 1480 (2nd generation)Richard Wightman (3rd generation)William Wightman (4th generation)John Wightman (5th generation)Edward Wightman (the one who was burn at the stake in England) (6th generation)John Wightman (7th generation)George Wightman (8th generation)George Wightman (9th generation)Samuel Wightman (10th generation)Benjamin Wightman (11th generation)George Wightman (12th generation)Daniel Wightman/ later spelled Whitman (the one I need more info on children and wife) (13th generation)Charles Otis Whitman (14th generation)Seth Charles Whitman (15th generation)Glenn Ferris Whitman (16th generation)Glenn Evans Whitman (my father)
Thanks to a good person by the name of Debbie, I have all this direct lineage (generations), my main concern right now is Daniel Whitman who was born in 1808, some reports show him born in 1807 and others 1808 *same Daniel.
It is possible that 5 of his children were born in New York.
Any help with this family group would be apreciated, Thank You, Sheryl firstname.lastname@example.org < my email address.
