Just update on a previous request. Since my last posting I've found another name. Ruben Johnson Whiteus married Mattie Lee Whitworth (born March 19, 1886, Rains County, TX). The timeframe is so similar that Ruben is bound to be Josephine's brother. They both married Whitworths.
Looking for the Whitus family. The only person I have is Josephine Whitus born September 3, 1884, died 1968 inEmory, Rains County, TX. Married Hiram Ransom Whitworth (parents William Sullivan Whitworth and Betty Elizabeth Kennedy). Hiram was born June 9, 1880 in Emory, TX and died July 1967 in Emory, TX. Their children were (1) Jessie Elizabeth Whitworth, born 12/30/01 in Alba, Wood County, TX; died 5/22/1996 in Sweet Home, Linn County, OR. Jessie marreid Charles Wesley Thomas Neely on 5/1/20 in Alba, TX. (2) Fannie Whitworth, born 11/13/04 in Rains County, TX; died 12/12/1994 in Emory, Rains County, TX. Fannie married Harvey Bullard on 8/27/1924 in Colony, TX.
Anything you can supply will be greatly appreciated. Jesse
