Sample (?) WHITINGER b. c1855 Indiana moved to CA c1890
I am searching for the family of Sample (this is what the name looks like) WHITINGER who was born c1855 in Indiana.He says both of his Parents were born in Indiana as well.
His wife's name looks to be Samantha who is age 60 in 1920 and she was born in Missouri and both of her parents were born in Ohio.
Sample and Samantha had at least the following children possibly more:
Winifred "Winnie" b.c1892 in Calif. she married William MOODY c1912 in CA.Her husband is the son of my 3rd grt. grandfather's son William MOODY who came to CA from Maine after his service in the Civil War. William Moody, Sr. was the son of an Indian medicine man who lived in Lowell, MA from about 1849 to 1877. His name was Joseph D. Moody.
I have been trying to track this family for the last 2 years.
William and Winnie B. MOODY had a son named Wilber Moody born c1921/22 in CA.His other siblings were Hazel and Opal.
I have more info on this family but am trying to trace Sample Whitinger and find out who his family was before I get into all the others.
OTHER children of Sample and Samantha were Louis who was age 36 in 1920 and he was born in Missouri so apparently this family moved to Missouri at one point.Verna O. daughter age 26 b. CA and Harold W. son age 21 b. CA.
(this was taken from the 1920 Gridley, Butte Co., CA census).
If anyone can help me with Sample's Parents or Samantha's Parents I would be most grateful.
Don't you just HATE these Pop Up Ads we have to contend with now on here? I knew once MyFAmily took it over they would mess it up just like they did Ancestry and Rootsweb.
