Thanks for taking the time to reply. :)
Since posting this thread, I've learned more about the Waite side of my family, and you were right about them being from England. It was a surprise, as my family had always believed them to be German.
They descended from the Wyatt family. The name sure has changed a lot!
It's an interesting story, but not as mixed as I had thought. Both sides of my father's family are from England.
Thanks again, and good luck with your tree!
