My name is Samuel Whiting Van Dam. My mother was Regina Whiting Rutherford, daughter of Jessie Whiting and Walter Rutherford whom I visited many times in Clarksburg. We are descendants of Robert Whiting.
I Never met Doris but was aware of her work a genealogist and host of the family reunion at Cedar Creek.
I am very sorry to hear about her passing. She was obviously a fine person.
I wish that I had been able to attend a reunion. Perhaps the reunions will continue ? If so I would like to attend.
I have given money to the Pisgah cemetery fund and my current address is PO Box 88, Thetford, Vermont, 05074.

A note to Doris Radabaugh's dear family:

I am so saddened to know of the death of Doris. She has contributed so much to my life. I will remember the day forever that I met Mary, Doris and Fred.

My grandmother was Breatice Radabaugh Freeman. My mother, Jeanne Freeman Lipscomb, attended the Radabaugh reunions and enjoyed them so much. How I now wish I had attended with her. She came home so happy that she had visited with cousins! I had already been bitten by the "genealogy bug" years before, but I always thought I was too busy to go with her. I was married, teaching school and my husband and I had 2 small children.

Many years ago my husband and I were looking for the area where my grandmother had lived. We turned down a road that led us to a beautiful farm that had a mailbox with Radabaugh printed on it. Doris, Mary and Fred invited us into the beautiful farmhouse. They told us the history of the farmhouse . I learned so many things about my family that day! All three were so caring and proud of their heritage. Doris and Mary have shared so much of their research with me. I am sorry that I never got to visit with them again. One day, I drove from my home to do some "digging" at the research center located in the old school house at Horner. I had just missed seeing Mary and Doris that day!

Just a cousin,
Andrea Lipscomb O'Dell
