This is the brickwall in my direct male ancestry. Everything I have on him is on the profile. It's not much. Admittedly, I haven't done much research in a long time, and I never did serious shoe leather genealogy.

Thanks, Frank! I appreciate it. I updated http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Whitten-56 with the 1850 and 1870 census info. I didn't have that.

Still not sure who his parents were. Research for another day.

Possibly Albert H. Whitten could be an older brother to Samuel.
