Leslie A. Whittington -- died aboard airplane that crashed into the pentagon.

obituary

Louisiana
before 1883

Elisha Whittington (ca 1804-1883) and his three youngest daughters: (left to right) Leona (1851-), Mary Luvina (1855-1936) and Sarah Viola (1859-1934) (does this order seem reversed to anyone besides me?).  Family lore says Elisha was the Louisiana blacksmith that made the Bowie knife for Rezin Bowie, Jim Bowie's brother, but this is not supported by the evidence (see Elisha's information).
