James Nicholas Whittekiend
I was so excited to see this!I am still pretty new to the geneology thing, so please bear with me:
My father is Allan Ray Whittekiend son of Willet Barton Whittekiend son of James Oliver Whittekiend son of Nicholas Whittekiend.That's all the farther I was able to get, but seeingyour information (as well as others here) I think thatNicholas (John Nicholas) was the son of a Tobias Whittekiend/Whittaken/Whittaker.I believe this because we know that Nicholas married Temperance Kuns around 1852.Maybe you could help me trace this back a bit farther?I need all the help I can get - this has been pretty confusing.
I started doing geneology to trace the military history of the Whittekiend's for my book that I am writing.It's just a book for the family.My dad, Allan, has mentioned more than one time that he would like to trace back how long the Whittekiend's have served their country. (He served in Vietnam and I am just now starting to get him to talk a bit about his experience - perhaps our family history will help!)
