Re: Whitinger descendants in Carmel, IN
Hi Janet!The last hour of work on a Friday afternoon seems to creep by... No, both my mom (Judith Ann [Danner] Whitinger) and my aunt (Julie [Polis] Whitinger) are alive and kicking.In fact, I've never heard of any history of breast cancer in our family.My mom's birthday is November 25, 1947.As for my aunt, I'd have to ask around.
It's so ironic that Franz Weidinger is originally from Nueremberg, Germany.I actually lived there for 4 months as an exchange student the summer before my junior year in high school.Little did I know, I might've walked by places that he did at one time!Amazing.Also, my freshman year in college, my sister Betsy and I accidentally stumbled upon a strange coincidence.We both attended Indiana State University in Terre Haute, and one day we drove around our in the country to the south and west of Terre Haute.There, we found an old graveyard, so, being interested in history, we thought we'd take a look.Low and behold, there were 2 stones with the Whitinger name on them!I can't remember the names off hand, but I'll ask and let you know.
I'd certainly love to see what you've put together.When I was younger, I'd ask my grandpa about our family history, but now I don't see him much.My address is:
1237 Dori Lane
Indianapolis, IN 46260
Thanks so much!!
