Winifred "Winnie" Whitinger of Lassen Co., CA b.c1888?
Searching for info on a Winifred "Winnie" Whitinger possibly of Lassen Co. or Butte Co., CA.
She married Willie or William MOODY and they had at least 2 children and possibly a son also named Willie.
Children that I have for them were Harriet Moody and Opal Moody. There was a Willie Moody born that may be their son.
If Anyone knows of this family Please post here.
Willie Moody, Sr. is a son of William Moody and Ella Hoxie Avery supposedly of Wisconsin. William came to CA just about the year 1880 and worked for the Sierra Logging company.He married Ella in Red Bluff, Tehama Co., CA in 1885.William was born in Mass, his father Dr. Joseph D. Moody was born in Maine c1807, and his mother Sarah A. Brewer was born prob. in Ipswich, MA c1817.Dr. Joseph D. Moody, William's father was Native American and to which tribe I am Still working to find out.He is definitely of one of the many Abenaki tribes that is for sure.
Dr. Joseph is a son of Joseph Moody and Hannah Thomas also of Maine. They are listed in the 1850 Brunswick, ME census. By 1860 Joseph and Hannah must have died because they are no longer there after having lived in Brunswick since 1820.
Willie, Jr.'s father William was in the Civil War and was wounded in the foot at the battle of Cold Harbor. (I have his pension records from NARA).
If anyone has further info on this family or would like to know more about it, I have more info.
