 Mr. Bigelow;
    My name is Bob Wilkins, and I found your page containing reference to Morrison R. Waite, and Henry Matson Waite via the Family Tree Maker Virtual Index.
    My mother is Priscilla Waite Wilkins, whose father was Ralph Blaine Waite, and grandfather was Henry Clay Waite.  Henry
Clay's father was Alvin, and his father was William, or possibly Charles William. According to Priscilla, Morrison was a cousin
of her grandfather Henry Clay Waite.  I have a picture of Morrison in robes as 7th Chief Justice.
    I don't know how much you've found about the Waite side of your family, but I would be appreciative of information about
William/ Charles William per above. I'm sending a copy of this to Greg Waite, who is also researching Waites.
