Parents of Myrtel Whitlock

0 votes
My GG Grandmother is Myrtle Whitlock. She was born on 5 Feb 1872 in Marietta , in Prentiss Co., Mississippi. She married George Washington Wren on 15 Oct 1890. She died 25 Jul 1949 in Boonesville, Prentiss, Mississippi.

I have heard That Her parents were John Greene/Green Whitlock and Josephine Cook. John is the son of Hezekiah/Hesekiah Whitlock and Matilda Goff. I don't know the parents of Josephine Cook

I am looking to Verify if John and Josephine were indeed the parents of Myrtle. If they are not... then who were her parents? If they are then they are both buried in North Haven,Union, Mississippi.

Also Who Were Josephine's Parents. I haven't been able to find evidence of these either.

You could try to go to and locate this census data. It has the birth month/year/location for Josephine and John. Also the birth location of their parents.

It also lists 5 of their 12 children. Maybe from that starting point you can find out more details. Myrtle and George Wren are on the second reference.
