I have it as George Monroe Whitener, and he took my great-grandfather William McKinley Whitener in at a very young age. His father was Bob or Robert Whitener, whom i cannot find. My grandfather Earl Whitener bought new headstones for George and Lizzie in Mt. Vernon Cemetary in Vale, NC. We never had the dates inscribed, but he's near my great-grandfather.
Whitener, George (new stone-no dates)
Whitener, William McKinley November 11, 1900 August 21, 1925
Whitener, Eunice Eva Crowder March 8, 1902 2002 (recent burial)http://files.usgwarchives.org/nc/lincoln/cemeteries/mtvernbc...
Hope this helps, let me know if you know anything of Bob or Robert Whitener.
