Tobias (Probably an incorrect transcription) Lee Whittington is Alfred Frank Whittington's wife. She was born in Pennsylvania. Her occupation is a stenographer.

Paul Report 12 Jan 2013 16:21

Thank you both for your help.

The plot in the USA just gets thicker and thicker .I am trying to move forward so eventually I can find living relatives.

I believe Alfred Frank changes his names in 1941 to Allan,so it gets more difficult.

Thank you both again.

The 1930 directory is interesting:

Gender: F (Female)
Residence Year: 1930
Street Address: 6 Lakeview blvd
Residence Place: Seattle, Washington
Spouse: Alfd J Whittington - Carpenter
Publication Title: Seattle, Washington, City Directory, 1930

Same address has Allan F (singer) and Stanley W (pantryman)

What is interesting is that Daisy's 1927 naturalisation gives her address as 1327 Terry Avenue. In 1930 there is a Chas D Whittington (lift operator) living at that address. He must be a relative?
