McWhirter Records

Jeannie Halversen has very generously shared with me several items from the McWhirter family including some Civil War records for brothers Samuel and James McWhirter (which include physical descriptions!), an obit for Agnes McCurn Spillings, an obit and some “realia” for Harry McWhirter Barrett (including some entertaining materials from his teaching days, and a newspaper article on his career as a leading educator).

All of this will be going up on the tree, or is already there.

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
