Whitt, George Michael (b. 26 FEB 1882, d. 16 JAN 1919)
Note: Mike and Elzie were farmers and owned land on the State Line
Road East of Ardmore, in Limestone County, Alabama. Mike died
16 January 1919 at the age of 37 with the flu and pneumonia. He
left Elzie a widow with four (4) small children, and one on the
way, to raise. Georgia Marie was born after Mike's death. Elzie
had a very hard time, working and farming, trying to raise her
children. She was a neighbor to Odie and Vergie (Whitt)
Edwards. Vergie was the first cousin of Mike's and after her
death, Elzie helped look after the Edward's children as well as
her own.

During the flu epidemic of 1918 a neighbor Mr. Maddox and his
family were all in the bed sick. Mike went to visit and to
help them in any way he could. He took the flu himself and died
19 Jan 1919, leavingt a widow with four small children, and one
unborn child.

At the time of Mike's death all members of his family, except
for his small son Charley Robert, were in the bed sick with the
flu. Some of the men in the community came to their house to
take care of them, including Charlie, Bennie, Johnny, and
Dewitt Gatlin, and Lewis Whitt. Mike's daughter Bessie, about
12 years of age at the time, remembers the undertaker bringing
her father's body around to each of their beds in order that
they might see him.

Mike had built his family a new house just prior to his death.

George is always referred to as having been a very happy,
funny, and an easy going person that liked to have fun. He
always had pretty horses. George Michael attended school at
Lizzard's Loop, near the Henry Bayless farm, and later attended
Cash Point School.
