Apr 16, 2003 - I am seeking information on Frances "Fanny" Whisenand and Adam or James Adam Davolt's marriage. Adam Davolt and family lived in Sullivan co. Tennessee. I have found them in the 1830-1840 censuses. All genealogical family trees list the marriage between these two. We have found land records that list Adams wife in 1830 as Barbara Nicely Davolt. I also have an old family register that list Barbara as the wife, and all the children are listed under Adam and Barbara. She has the same birth date listed as Fanny's. The children's birth dates range from 1808-1831. Barbara's sister was married to a Whisenand (Jacob W. Whisenand) and Adam's son was married to a Whisenand (John and Catherine), so we know there was a Davolt Whisenand connection. I wonder if Fanny was wife one and Barbara the second wife. Any information on this family would be helpful. Contact: Sandy Kramer at the Email addressed listed above.

December 10, 1998 - I am looking for the death place of my 2nd Great Grandfather Peter Whisenand. Two different books on the family, and two different sources, give the story as follows: Peter left home about 1850/51 to go to the gold mines in California. He sent some nuggets home, and in 1857 the family got a letter from him saying he found his gold and was heading home. The letter got home, but Peter did not. According to the story, the family searched and found he died in the Mountain Meadow Massacre. I am searching for the proof of this story. If I find the proof, Peter's name can be added to the Monument that is being erected for the victims of the Massacre.

Carol Noonkester (Mrs. Jimmy Nelson) had done some research on the family. She is credit for the info in the "Daphane Arlene Dudley Hoover" book. I hope someone can help me in this search, and where to find Carol. Any suggestions would be appreciated..
