I am researching an Ellen H Whaley who was born 12 August 1924 in Detroit, Michigan to Eulie Whaley and Alice Kalt. I don't know who Eulie's parents are or who his siblings are. Alice Kalt is the daughter of William and Ellen B. Kalt. Alice's siblings are Eleanor Hazel, William Damien, and Eva R.
On the 1930 census in Detroit, Michigan living at 3737 Garland Ave, Ellen has one sibling Dona Johann Whaley born about 1926. Also living with them is Alice's sister(Eleanor) Hazel Kalt and two boarders Paul & Herman Niamyer from Germany. Eulie's occupation at the time is a foreman in an auto parts facility and his age of 34 indicates that he was born about 1896. Herman Niamyer wroked at an auto body facility and Paul Niamyer wwas a butcher for a wholesaler. Hazel Kalt is a bookkeeper for a music house. The census also indicates that Eulie and Alice were married about 1923.
Ellen Whaley is living in Pawtucket, RI in 1941 with Dorothy M and Sarah A Whaley at 24 Thurber. Dorothy and Sarah Whaley are working as quillers at Ott's and Ellen is working as an operator. Ellen enlisted in the Womens Army Corps here 27 Sept 1944 and was trained to be lab tech for motion pictures and shipping clerk. I don't know how Dorothy and Sarah are related to Ellen.
Sometime after WWII, she moved to North Fort Myers, Florida and bought property. She was an artist and also raised and trained bird dogs. Sometime around 1995, Ellen moved to Pinellas Co., Florida and died there 30 Sept 1998. I have sent for the obit from the St Pete Times.
