Whitcraft Family (Work in Progress)

The following information was and is being compiled by Pat at Passed Time (in conjunction with Jeannie-ology). My work, my copyright.*

      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.
