It has been some period of time since your posting.
Have you been able to find any information regarding your Robert Taylor Whaley?
My great great grand-mother was Ann Whaley, born about 1812 in Wyville, Lincolnshire, England.
In 1833 she married Thomas Brown in Bitchfield, Lincolnshire, and was widowed before she was fifty.
So far I have found only one sister - Ellen, who from what I can detect, never married.
Has your Robert any sisters? Could we have a connection?
I am trying to connect Ann with parents and siblings. Any help would be appreciated.
