Charles Whitman (6)




This branch of the Whitman Family Tree is in thanks to Vern Whitman, who is 86 years young. I say this because I want everyone to realize how much work he has done so that his family could be included on this web site. You should be very proud Vern. I have enjoyed working with him on this since last November, 2001. I would also like to thank Kaye Evans for her work on her family, and coming to my home and working with me to make sure that we had all the information correct. Thanks Kaye!
Vern, I hope you like the finished product and we can continue to add information to keep this branch up to date. Thank You So Much!! I will look forward to keeping in touch as we add more information.
