William Thomas Elder

William Thomas Elder was born 12 Jul 1868 in Columbia, Adair County, Kentucky to Granville Elder and his wife Sarah J Unknown. He served during the Spanish-American War. He married firstly to a fellow Kentucky-native, Mary L "Mollie" Murrell in Adair County, Kentucky on 23 Sep 1903. They had two known children: Garvin Elder (1904-1968) and Earl Elder (1905-). (Earl was in the US Coast Guard in Baltimore, Maryland in 1945). Mary died between the 1910 census, when they are all enumerated in Menard County, Illinois and the 1920 census, when the family is enumerated in Nevada County, Arkansas. If they had any more children, they must have died young as they are not on the 1920 census with William.

He married his second wife Eva Lorene Whitney (1904-1989) about 1925 ("when she was 21", see 1930 census), probably in Arkansas, and probably in Nevada County, where both families then lived, or possibly next-door in Hempstead County. The family lived in Hope, Arkansas by 1925 when their daughter May was born there. William and May had at least or exactly seven children: (in birth order) May, Neal (who died in a swimming accident), Louise (who married Jack Casey), Elsie who married Alvin Wilson Huckabee (the son of Sidney Carl "Tobe" Huckabee and Parie Betts), Vena (who married Roger Pletcher), Emilie (who married Leon Prescott, and William Thomas Jr.(who married Gloria)

William Thomas Elder died 8 Mar 1945 in Springhill Township, Hempstead County, Arkansas. He is buried in Huckabee Cemetery in Springhill.

His widow Eva remarried to a Mr. Garner which is the surname under which she died.

Eva Lorene Whitney was born 9 Feb 1904, daughter of Charles Oliver Whitney and his wife Sarah Ablacur Sickler, probably in or near Decatur, Macon County, Illinois as her obituary calls her a "native of Decatur, Illinois".

Eva married William Thomas Elder (1868-1945), evidently as his second wife when she was about 21. The family lived in Hope, Arkansas in 1925. They had seven children: May, Neal, Louise, Elsie, Vena, Emilie, and William Thomas Jr.

After William Thomas Elder died, Eva remarried to a Mr. Garner which is the surname under which she died on 2 Jan 1989.

Charles Oliver Whitney

Charles Oliver Whitney was born 6 May 1865 in Menard County, Illinois, son of Scott Macine Whitney by his wife Mary Ann Bell. His father Scott may have died sometime between 1864 and 1867, since on 18 Mar 1867, Mary married secondly to Michael Rock in Menard County, Illinois.

In 1870 and 1880 the family is enumerated living in Menard County with Michael Rock as the head of the family. Evidently Charles was the only surviving issue from his mother's first marriage. Interestingly, Mary is remarried as Mary Bell not Mary Whitney, this may indicate the possibility that Scott did not die, but rather that he and Mary divorced.

On 23 Feb 1891, in Petersburg, Menard County, Illinois, Charles married firstly, on 23 Feb 1891 in Menard County, Illinois to Sarah Ablacur Sickler. They had at least or exactly nine children: Minnie Laura Whitney 1891/2, George Allen Whitney 1893/4, Charles Scott Whitney 1895/6, Jazer Harry Whitney (infant), Mary Ann Whitney 1897/8, John William Whitney 1900/1, Eva Lorene Whitney 1903/4, James Douglas Whitney 1906/7 and Robert Francis Whitney 1908/9.

In 1910, where the family was enumerated living in Long Creek, Macon County, Illinois, Sarah states that she is the mother of 9 children, 8 of whom are still living. Sarah died later that same year. Charles then married secondly, her sister Minerva Sickler. By 1920 the family had moved to Alabama Township, in Nevada County, Arkansas. They may have later moved to Hope, Arkansas as Charles died there on 7 Feb 1937.

His second wife Minerva died in 1940. Charles and both of his wifes are buried in the Spangler Cemetery in Macon County, Illinois.

Sarah Ablacur Sickler

Sarah Ablacur Sickler was born about 1865/6 in Illinois, the daughter of Robert Sickler by his wife Mary. She married, as his first wife, on 23 Feb 1891 in Menard County, Illinois to Charles Oliver Whitney (b 1865), a native of that place. They had at least or exactly nine children: Minnie Laura Whitney 1891/2, George Allen Whitney 1893/4, Charles Scott Whitney 1895/6, Jazer Harry Whitney (infant), Mary Ann Whitney 1897/8, John William Whitney 1900/1, Eva Lorene Whitney 1903/4, James Douglas Whitney 1906/7 and Robert Francis Whitney 1908/9.

In 1910, where the family was enumerated living in Long Creek, Macon County, Illinois, Sarah states that she is the mother of 9 children, 8 of whom are still living. Sarah died later that same year. Charles then married secondly, her sister Minerva Sickler. By 1920 the family had moved to Alabama Township, in Nevada County, Arkansas. They may have later moved to Hope, Arkansas as Charles died there on 7 Feb 1937.

Scott Sickler, a site visitor, informs me that the parents of Sarah and Minerva were Robert F Sickler and his wife Mary J Sheppard, and directs me to the 1870 and 1880 census of Tazewell County, Illinois for confirmation. He further states that Mary (Sheppard) Sickler died Jan 1909 in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Charles' second wife Minerva died in 1940. Charles and both of his wifes are buried in the Spangler Cemetery in Macon County, Illinois.
