Troy-I went to the 1920 census record on rootsweb.com and found the following -- Buford Whitman, b about 1920, born in Alabama; father - James F. Whitman (age22) born in Alabama; mother - Lillie Whitman (age22) born in Alabama. They were living in Bowdon, Carroll, Ga.
Other info I found that you may want to look at (Social Security death index) Buford Whitman (b 17 Sep 1903, d: Jul 1973) last address Manchester, Coffee, TN.
from the 1910 census record for Warren TN - Buford Whitman (b: abt 1904); father Rueben Whitman (age 33); Mother Reny Whitman (Age 33)
