Whittaker Family Page

The surname for this ancestral line was sometimes spelled as Whitaker and sometimes as Whittaker, with other various misspellings noted on census and other records. Much of the following information was obtained from Carla Pigman, a descendant of John Martin Whittaker, for which I am grateful. The Ancestry website, the Familysearch website, and the Find a Grave website have also provided useful information. I cannot vouch for the complete accuracy of all of the information I have gathered, so would appreciate being informed of obvious errors. I can be contacted by email at kkgoins@comcast.net. The Whittaker Family Page was last updated in March 2016.
