I'm kind of new at this and don't really understand the relationship terms (once removed, 4th, etd) however I would resally like to talk with you.My email is email@example.com
James William Whitsett married Lottie Bertha Downing had 5 daughters.Mary (Dilke)Whitsett b 3/27/1902, Ruth (Terry) Whitsett b 8/20/1903, Lottie (my mom)Birtha (Ashley) Whitsett b 9/12/1905, these three born in Danville IL, Pearl (Carter) Whitsett b 4/29/1908 in Sheepshead, NY and Maxine (not Nadine)(Haynes) Whitsett b 1/4/1910 in Berkeley (we think) CA.
James Whitsett left his family on 8/15/1921.He went to Chicago, IL.His wife had him declaired dead in 1928 and then married Lloyd Houston.
James Whitsett returned for a week in 1949 to see his 5 girls.He stayed a week and then left again for good.We have not found a trail to him.
He was a wagon driver for a milk company and his wife was a sales lady for D,S,S, Draperies in San Francisco.We believe he left due to threats on his life for his activities in forming a dairy union,
Thats about all we know.I do have additional information on his wife's tree.It can be found in Ancestry.com entry 5514 Donna's Family under Lottie B. Downing.
