    Notes:

    1900 Federal Census

    My wife didn't know much about Zona's family, but remembered that a sister, Flossie, visited from time to time. I tried to locate Zona in the 1900 census in Putnam and White Counites, but she just wasn't there. So I did a search for Flossie Whittaker and up popped a hit in Todd County KY. Below is the census record. It shows Flossie as the niece of the head of household, William Whittaker, along with Lonnie who also is listed as a niece. Looking at the hand written page it's obvious that the name is Zonnie as "L"s elsewhere in the document are made differently.

    Ancestry.com provides digital copies of Federal census records and also tabulates information on the person on the record page found when searching for a person. Names are usually translated from the hand written copy to the typed tabulations fairly well. Whoever does the translation is good at reading old handwriting, but in some cases the handwriting isn't very clear and a close observation reveals a different spelling.

    In addition to Zonnie and Flossie, two nephews are listed, Lee and Willis. Bettie Whittaker indicates she is not the mother of any children and Ceen Whittaker indicates she is the mother of six children and they are all living. There are six children in the house and I am guessing they are all children of Ceen Whittaker as their ages show they are stair steps.

    Apparently they were all living with Willliam Whittaker, the children''s uncle, in Kentucky in 1900.

    Since Lee and Willis are listed as sons of William, it is possible that he is the father of these two of Ceen Whittaker.
