    1. [VANSLYKE] Lydia M. VAN SLYKE
    2. I am looking for the parents and siblings of Lydia M. VAN SLYKE, b. 10 Jul 1823 in NY; d. 27 Nov 1885 in Belleville, Republic, Kansas. Lydia's husband was Lemuel Palmer WHITNEY, b. 22 Oct 1821 in Java, Wyoming, New York; d. 14 Aug 1901, in Belleville, Republic, Kansas. They were married on 08 Jan 1844 in Java and resided there for about six years. Three of their 7 children (Louisa, Newton, and Edwin) were born in Java. The family moved to Riley, McHenry, Illinois in 1851 and built the first house on what is now known as the Alfred Nelson place. Lemuel's parents, Palmer and Judah (Barber) Whitney also lived with the family. Four more children were born to Lemuel and Lydia (Emma, Ida, Nelson and Allen) in Riley, Illinois. In 1882 Lemuel and Lydia moved to a farm in Belleville, Kansas. They are buried at Belleville Cemetery in Belleville, Kansas. Lydia Van Slyke Whitney is my 2nd great grandmother. I would love to find out more about her ancestors. Thank you. Janet **************Know Your Numbers: Get tips and tools to help you improve your credit score.
