Any other relatives of the Whiteheads know anything?

+1 vote
I'm relatively new to G2G but have been doing Genealogy for several years; much of that time on Wikitree. I've hit a couple of brick walls and I'm wondering whether anyone may know any information that may help.

I'm the grandson of [[Whitehead-1576 | Irene (Whitehead) Tait]]. Here's what I know so far:

* her parents were [[Whitehead-1576 | Alfred Whitehead]] and [[Whittaker-977 | Eileen (Whittaker) Whitehead]] (I saw them on her birth certificate)

* She was born in Yorkshire on 6 Nov 1924

I'm alright in terms of [[Whitehead-1576 | Irene]]'s life and that of her mother but I can't find anything on her father, [[Whitehead-1578 | Alfred]]. He's a brick wall for me—as are her brothers, [[Whitehead-1589 | Alfred Jr]], [[Whitehead-1590 | Geoffrey]].

I know her brothers exist and I know that their names are Alfred and Geoffrey respectively as [[Whitehead-1576 | Irene]] told me their names some years ago; I just can't remember any details ten years later. I've tried looking in all the usual places but I'm coming up with nothing.

Is there anyone who might know something? A cousin, perhaps? Any leads you could give me would be greatly appreciated

Thanks so much, Frank. From what I could see, my own knowledge and research agree with you. You've been a massive help.
Thank you. has extensive information.
I know but I can never be too sure as to which is the correct Alfred Whitehead.

By the way, can I ask what made you think it was this Alfred (son of James B Whitehead etc) especially? I've tried to see whether I could replicate the search and try to find a link between a son of James B Whitehead marrying an Eileen Whittaker and came up blanks?

I don't mean to be rude so sorry if this comes across that way but I'm genuinely curious.
When I saw the last name Whittaker and the possible full name Eileen M Whittaker, it looked like a good possibility.

PS I noticed a Timothy Dwight in your ancestor chart. I have a connection to a slightly more recent Timothy Dwight. My brother and maternal grandfather were given Dwight as a first name.
