As the title states, this genealogy is a work in progress. As more information is found in the Whitcraft Scrapbook, I will add more. Also keep in mind that the younger generations might have had more children. As an example, G.E. died in 1954 so the information listed here is from that time. As I am mainly followingt the scrapbook, the later generations undoubtedly added to the descendant count.

This was the first sight of an army that had come to destroy and subdue, and no one but those who were here enjoying the fruits of their hard labors, can express the prevalent feeling when asked to surrender their own to the would-be destroyers of our Government.*
Sir: the authorities of the borough of Gettysburg, in answer to the demand made upon the same borough and county by you, say their authority extends but to the borough; that the requisition asked for can not be given, because it is utterly impossible to comply. The quantities required are far beyond that in our possession. In compliance, however, to the demand, we will request the stores to be opened and the citizens to furnish whatever they can of such provisions, etc., as may be asked. Further we can not promise. By authority of the council of the borough of Gettysburg, I hereunto, as president of said board, attach my name. D. Kendlehart

This is one of those cases where photographs weave an interesting story, providing more information than that a person standing while smiling or frowning awkwardly into the camera (every picture I am in). Narration and photograph merge to provide a more complete story than usual.
These five photos came in a box of about fifty photographs, most of which were unidentified (pet peeve No. 5001). All were strewn haphazardly in the box. An anonymous, elderly hand carefully labeled each of these five photographs with a blue ballpoint pen, which tipped me off that they belong together. Three are identified with the shared last name, "Morrow", making identification possible. "Thank you" unknown blue ballpoint pen labeler. Thank you.
Upon researching "Morrow", the photographed subjects began to flesh out as information found on the Sherbondy Family Association website provided background. The photographs do not encompass all of the Morrow family members found in the following passage. Some have probably been separated over time, or perhaps some Morrow family members never had their likeness photographed. However, I want to present a more complete background of the generations than represented by the photographs alone.
This little, battered suitcase sat forlornly on the table awaiting the fall of the auctioneer's gavel. It was marked with a sticker reading "Heiligenblut" and labeled with a handwritten note written in Hungarian ( a guess). A batch of postcards and pictures were sticking out, so I a left a low bid for a friend to execute on my behalf. The bid was low, not because I felt the suitcase and its contents were worthless, but because later documents prove difficult. How much about a family should be disclosed, especially as some members are undoubtedly still alive? Yet, these papers do no one any good sitting around in a suitcase. The worst-case scenario would be that the contents picked through and then scattered. Once that happens, the documents can never be regrouped again and these tell a cohesive story about the Vidovich family.
A handful of records I recently ran across from Washington County, Pennsylvania, shows how courts settled property among families when the father died intestate (having left no will). For genealogists, such documents can be helpful because they list his children. When those children were grown and married, the names of his daughters' spouses are helpful to genealogists. They clearly show family relationships.
One such example was made for Peter Ground of Strabane Township, Washington County. This area is near Pittsburgh and the date of the document was 1834. Peter Ground's widow was Elizabeth. The paper says the Grounds had seven children. One might have predeceased Peter Ground, for this documents lists only six children, namely: John; Elizabeth, wife of John Norris; Katharine, wife of Daniel Weller; Mariah; Peter; and Joseph. All were above the age of 21 years.
Another was made for Samuel Thompson of Chartiers Township, Washington County. Samuel's wife, Sarah, predeceased Samuel, who died about 1832. Samuel and Sarah Thompson had six children. One was Jane, wife of John McKinney; Margaret, wife of William Greer; John; James; Samuel; and Sarah, wife of Sylvester Tripp.
A third was made for Thomas Hill of Cecill Township, Washington County. His children were Betsey, wife of Barnard Anders; William; Esther, wife of Thomas Miller; Mary; Abigail; and Thomas. This documents dates from 1831.
Thought I would share this information with folks who might be researching ancestors near Pittsburgh.
