Their first born daughter Eliza Harrriet eas baptized in St. Pauls
Luthern Church Red Hook,Dutchess co NY. No other child appears to have
been baptized in the Red Hook area. I have most of the Churchbook
records for Dutchess co NY and no where do any other children appear.
This is not unusual. The family appears in USC1850 in Red Hook surname
is listed as WITAKER there. It appears they migrated to Iowa between
1855-1863. They appear in USC 1870-1880 in Davenport Scott co IA.
