Note on Husband: Herbert Charles WHITTA

Second-generation federal grain inspector and first American-born

child of English immigrants. He attended elementary school at Holmes

School on W. Center St. in Fostoria - this building is now the Knights

of Columbus Hall. He suffered from emphasema in his later years,

spending part of each year in Port Charlotte, Florida.

Note on Wife: Helen Ernestine BERNARD

Little is spoken of Helen, as she was the first wife of H.C. Whitta.

I do know that she died of cancer at the age of 50 - her youngest

child was only 12 years old at the time.

H.C.Whitta joined the Roman Catholic Church so that he could

marry Helen and that is the only reason that some of the American

Whitta decendants are not still members of the Episcopal Church.
