Isaac Whittington, born 1873 in Putnam County, was my great-grand uncle. He married into my family with his first marriage to Martha S. Ruley. She was the daughter of Fealdon/Feldon Ruley and Martha Esther Hamilton. Martha S. was born 19 Oct 1872 in Putnam County and died 15 Aug 1896 (probably in Ohio). The marriage produced two sons.

He married Rose and had two children, Roberta and Lawrence.

Isaac's second marriage was to Luvernia Amatis Higginbotham.

I'm Isaac Whittington's grandaughter by his second wife, Lavernia Amatis Higginbotham. They moved to Ohio in approximately 1922 when my father, Jesse, was about 2 years old.
Along with the 2 sons (Frank & Virgil) he had with Martha Ruley, he and my grandmother had many more children; all of whom are now deceased. I am the youngest grandchild of Isaac and Lavernia and I am now 48 years old.
Their other children were ( in no particular order)
Dolly Dot
Everett
Cecil
Tom
Bill
Gusta
Margaret
Rheada
Elsie
Alice
Jesse
Andrew
Bud (I believe his real first name may have been Avril)
Edith

Hello....I am one of Isaacs great grand daughters with his second wife.
Do you have any pictures of Martha? I would love to have some to put in our family history/reunion scrapbook. Any would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
