There’s not a picture of all of them together and, sadly, I only remember meeting one of the, Uncle David. Here’s a list of all my aunts and uncles. Siblings of Philip Lloyd Whitney, 1934-1996.
Emmett Leroy “Bob” Whitney Jr., 1913-1996
Anna Marie Whitney Uselton Altmeyer, 1915-1965
David Wayne Whitney, 1921-1994
Paul Jean Whitney, 1922-1945
Dale Keith Whitney, 1925-1937
Joseph Dean Whitney, 1931-1937
My grandmother abandoned her four little girls after the death of her first husband, Arthur Huff, and I don’t have much information on them. Three were adopted out in Nebraska around 1920. One, Winifred, supposedly died in the flu pandemic of 1918.
I did find two of the girls but unfortunately they had passed before I found them. The girls were named Berniece, Pauline, Gladys and Winifred before adoption. Only Berniece kept her given name. I’m not sure which girls are Pauline or Gladys.
Berniece Lorraine Rickard Grosvenor, 1912-2002
Winifred Huff, 1914-1918
Elizabeth Ann “Bette” Brown Smith, 1918-2003
