Well, there must be other people with Whitwood ancestors out there, outside of Allegany county NY!! Anyone with connections to this famiy name, please contact me or my aunt Josephine Taylor. We are descended from Charles Whitwood b. about 1740's in England. He came to Mass. with his Mother, Father, and sister when he was a boy, and the mother and father died on the boat on the way over. We are totally lost as to who those parents were (or what happened to the sister!). Anyone know where we could find records online for passenger ship lists from England to Mass. between 1740 and 1770?
