From: "Gerald E. Whitney" <gwhitney -at-> Subject: Re: [WHITNEY] at Belleville, Ks. Date: Sun, 17 Sep 2006 16:18:11 -0500 In-Reply-To: <> Hi Janet Ide, I must write you out of interest, I was born in Belleville, Ks. and now live close to Lincoln, Ne. Can you fill in on some information about Dewitt Clinton Ide.Did Jessie and Alvin Thompson live in Republic county while DeWitt lived with them? Are Ida and Dewitt buried in the Belleville Cemetery or a cemetery close to Belleville ? Is Alvin Thompson related to anyone in the Republic Co. area now? Have any of the male Whitney's of Ida's line taken the DNA-y test ? It was most interesting to read your reply to Allen, I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Gerald E.(Jerry) Whitney Milford, NE gwhitney -at- -----Original Message----- From: whitney-bounces -at- -at- rootsweb.comOn Behalf Of JanetLynne121 -at- Sent: Sunday, September 17, 2006 8:35 AM To: whitney -at- Subject: Re: [WHITNEY] Milestone for New Web Site Allan, I am hoping you may have some information about the IDE family that Ida G. Whitney married into. Below is my line. Following that are notes that my grandfather George Palmer Ide wrote in his own hand. Ida's father-in-law, Harvey Ide, is my ancestral brick wall. I cannot connect Harvey in Simeon Ide's genealogy book and researchers in VT have not had any luck, either. I enjoy reading all of the e-mails from the Whitney web ring... it's so interesting! I would like to edit Ida Whitney's husband, D.C. Ide (I've seen it interpreted as District of Columbia!) to read Dewitt Clinton. However, I'm not sure how to make that change on the web site. Thank you for your time and for any information you may have on my Ide family. Janet Ide Rubertone IDA G.9 WHITNEY (LEMUEL PALMER8, PALMER7, JOSEPH6, TIMOTHY5, JOHN4, JOHN3, JOHN2, THOMAS1) was born 16 Sep 1854 in Riley, McHenry, Illinois, and died 27 Jul 1910 in Long Beach, Los Angeles, California. She married DEWITT CLINTON IDE 07 Jun 1876 in Boone Co., Illinois, son of HARVEY IDE and SARAH DELAND. He was born 26 Jul 1854 in Genoa, Dekalb, Illinois, and died 27 May 1929 in Belleville, Republic, Kansas. Notes for DEWITT CLINTON IDE: DeWitt Clinton and Ida (Whitney) Ide were married in June 1876 and had two children born in Genoa, Illinois: daughter Jessie Myrtle and son Clarence DeWitt. Shortly after Clarence's birth in 1885, the family moved from Genoa to a farm three miles east of Belleville, Kansas. It was there that George Palmer and Nellie May were born. In March 1910, Ida was in poor health, so the farm was sold and DeWitt, Ida and (possibly) Nellie May (age 10) moved to California. Ida died from tuberculosis at Long Beach, California on July 27, 1910. Ida is buried in Belleville, Kansas. After Ida's death, DeWitt lived with his daughter Jessie and son-in-law Alvin Thompson for the remainder of his life; excepting a few years spent at a sanatorium in Colorado Springs. DeWitt died on May 27, 1929 and is buried in Belleville, Kansas. ------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the list, please send an email to WHITNEY-request -at- with the word 'unsubscribe' without the quotes in the subject and the body of the message
