Looking for Unknown Whittington who resided around Birmingham, Alabama by the 1870's. In April of 1874 he and his wife (unknown) had twins, one boy (Isiah "Ike" Whittington) and one girl (may have been called Loma, very unsure). About two weeks after the twins birth Mr. or Mrs. Whittington died and two weeks after that (1 month after the birth of the twins) the spouse died, leaving the one month old twins orphaned.
This Unknown Whittington was reportedly a medical doctor, himself.
The twins were sent to live with the BALL family near Mobile, Alabama. Don't know the connection there. Isiah Whittington left AL around age 18 and ended up in TX.
Looking for any clue as to who this Dr. Unknown WHITTINGTON and wife were and what happened to the twin girl (Isiah didn't keep in contact with her once he left to TX). Plus info on who this BALL family was.
