Kodie, frustrating isn't it!! I have had the same negative results with the Whittington's. Maybe we can help each other. Also searching for information on my father's family to built my family history. I know very little about him.
Carl Lee Whittington
Born 7/19/07
Died Nov. 1977
Mother's name Myrtle. I believe he had a sister named Lucy or Lucile. They lived in Ak. or Texas most of their lifes.

I know it's a long shot but your dad may have been a son or nephew of my father. Do you have any information on your Dad's siblings or uncles?
Please respond to e-mail address:

My dad

Thanks so much for responding. I know absolutely nothing about my dads uncles. But, as far as his siblings. His mom remarried I'm not sure if it was due to a divorce or a death but his step father and mother They had 2 or three boys. I'll have to call my sister to see if she remebers names. I have no information on my grandfather and only one picture that I know of. My dad grew up in red Lodge MT. There is even a school there or use to be called the Whittington school. For some reason the name Myrtle sounds really familiar to me. But the other name doesn't sorry.
As soon as I get the other info I'll let you know thanks.

I can help you with this family line. Your Dad was my Uncle Jimmy. His father was James Roscoe Whittington born Jan 1, 1883 in Lincoln Center, Kansas to Mr. and Mrs. Albert N. Whittington. When he was about 10 they moved to Red Lodge, MT. If this email is still active, please feel free to contact me.

WE attended his funeral in Roundup and burial in Lavina, which is where his home was at the time of his death.All four children from that marriage still survive.
