Looking for descendants of Thomas F. and Mary Alverson Whinery. Married in Crawford County Ar in 1878. Had one son David A. 1 yr old in the 1880 Crawford County Arkansas Census can not locate these relatives anywhere after 1880! Thomas F. had a younger brother William who went to Okmulgee County Ok and on to Phoenix,AZ. ANY information on this family would be most appreciated!

I have just run across your message asking for
information regarding descendants of T. and M.
Whinery. Unfortunately, I am at a loss to help
you in that area, but you mentioned a younger
brother of Thomas named William. He was my
grandfather. He died before I was born, so most
of the information that I have, I've obtained
from my mother and aunts (he had many children).

My mother tells me that my grandfather (William
Joseph Whinery) was born May 1, 1861 in Arkansas.
He died April 25, 1931 in Scottsdale, AZ. She
was raised by her grandparents until she was 8
years old, and her memories of her father are fuzzy,
however, she believes that he had a sister and a
brother. She (Velma Owens Whinery, born 1910)
believes that William's sister was named May or
Mary and lived in Arkansas or Oklahoma. She had
a lot of hair that was a very dark auburn and
looked black; wasn't able to tell that it was
black until she was out in the sun.

My mother never saw William's brother, but thinks
he was older and thought that name might have been
Frank (could that be the middle initial?). She
saw a photo of him once. Asked who that was in the
picture and her father replied that it was his
brother. She had the feeling that she shouldn't
ask anymore questions, so we are unable to explain
what may have happened if it did. She was reasonably
sure that the brother was older than William.

She also thinks that her grandfather, William's
father, fought in the Civil War for the South and
that both of William's parents may have died within
a fairly short time of each other after the war.
That left William's paternal grandparents to raise
him and his siblings.

Does any of this sound familiar? I would be most
anxious to see what information you have on the
family. Can also share what I have on William Whinery.

I should have tacked this on to the other message.

My mother and aunts have the belief that the Whinery family changed the spelling of their name during the Civil War.

Fran Alverson has been extremely helpful in
my search for information. Because of her I
have discovered some information that my mother
provided was incorrect. She just didn't know
any better because she was the youngest sibling.
Fran also e-mailed a copy of our grandfather's
death certificate. It was signed by Aunt Blanche.
Please e-mail (marten@cmn.net) and I can provide
you with the text of a letter that was written
when our great-grandfather died. This is already
located on a web site.

My mother (your father's sister) is still alive,
and her physical health is good, but her mind
has turned against her. My father just recently
died (Oct. 10).
