About Lewis P. Gove

Lewis P. Gove's wife, Elva Jantha Whitney, is a relative of mine through Elvira Elizabeth Whitney, so of course this makes both of them my relatives.--R. Woosley

Elva Jantha Whitney was first married to Lewis P. Gove's cousin, James Franklin Gove, and had children with him, whom I am related to twice over, if she is from the same Whitney ancestry that I am from (which I highly suspect).

As Elva Jantha is almost certainly from the same Whitney family that I am descended from, and that Elvira Elizabeth and Emma Frances Whitney are from, then she would be a distant relation of mine before the fact of her marriage James Franklin Gove.

Elva Jantha also later married Lewis P. Gove, who is another of my Gove relatives.

September 3, 2008--Elva Jantha, is in fact another of my Whitney relations before the fact of her marriages to my two Gove relations. She was a first cousin to Elvira Elizabeth AND Emma Frances Whitney. Her father and Elvira Elizabeth's father were brothers, both being children of Zimri Whitney and Susannah Sanderson Whitney. Therefore, Elva Jantha's & James Franklin Gove's 3 children are my cousins twice.
