I don't know who this Virgie Whisnant is either, and, I am also curious about her.Virgie & Edgar are shown on the census as living nearby to my where my Grandfather, James Robert (AKA Robert James) Whisnant and my Grandmother,Bettie Elizabeth (Crump) Whishant had lived.
US Census, 1900 Oklahoma, Chickasaw Nat. Indian Terr/120/37/5 Whisenant, Robert J.head04-6040AR Whisenant, Elizabethwife04-6634AR Whisenant, Franklinson04-8416AR Whisenant, Ettadau.02-8812AR Whisenant, Marydau.02-9010AR Whisenant, Isabeldau.10-927TX Whisenant, Hattiedau.11-954TX
Bettie Elizabeth died in 1909, so she is not on the 1910 census (see Below): US CENSUS, 1910, OKLAHOMA.PontotocCounty 59/257/100 Whisenant, Roberthead50WAR Whisenant, Bell R.dau17WTX(Isabel) Whisenant, Hattiedau14WTX Whisenant, Rosiedau5WOK(Roxie) Whisenant, Olah M.daun.r.WOK
1920 census, Robert had died (1918).Found Uncle Frank and Aunt Georgia and their family in Lamar (Hughes County) and found Ola and Roxie as "s.i.l." (sister-in-law) living with "Scott Johnes" in Francis (PontotocCo). (This is Grannie and Paw).This census does not list Hattie, wife of Scott, however, but she raised Roxie and Ola and they were living with Scott and Hattie.This census should have also listed their daughter, Geneva Lois as she was five years old then.
This census info was from Raymond C. Whisnant at http;:\Homepages:rootsweb.comwhisnantindex.htm
If you find anything else about them, or a connection to my Whisnant family, I would certainly appreciate the info.
I am especially interested in info on Robert's mother, Mahalia.
