This is an awesome resource. Found my grandfather and grandmother, Joseph and Floribel Whitehead. I must note a correction on page 83. (B) William Maxwell Whitehead born Feb. 10, 1911 Kansas City, Missouri. This is my uncle Bill. His middle name is not Maxwell. His middle name is Bray. Also, there were more children than the 3 listed. They had a total of 8 children. My dad, Samuel Howard Whitehead was #7.
