Re: Whiteheads in Fulton County Ill
A group of Whitehead & Saville families migrated to Fulton County from England, mostly in the 1840s. I have details of large numbers of their descendants in the U.S.
Samuel Whitehead was born 12 Feb 1857 in Liverpool, IL. He was the son of Henry Whitehead and Rebecca Guthrie and the grandson of John Whitehead & Nancy Saville. Nancy is part of my Saville family.
Samuel married twice, firstly to Effie Smilie in 1877 and secondly to Lydia Burhans in Jan 1938 just before he died in April.
I have a Henry D Whitehead and wonder if he is your Henry Dayton Whitehead. Henry D was born circa 1878 in Illinois the son of Ralph Whitehead & Eliza Ann Lowder & grandson of John Whitehead & Nancy Saville. I have no information about Henry D marrying nor, inevitably, about any children.
If you would like to contact me direct, please feel free to do so.
