If you haven’t seen this interesting website page at http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/82/ you can listen to the audio of Minnie Whitney, born in 1902, talk some about her life and family. You can also read the transcript of the interview, but it’s nicer to listen to listen to the audio. The interview was done in 1984.
I do not know where Minnie lived but she mentions an excursion from Virginia to Ocean City, Maryland. I found interesting her statement about herself as a child: “I was very careful in what I did, because I didn’t want my parents to get hurt.”
