M. Gary was interested in Whittle family genealogy and provided considerable information to W.O. Whittle in 1945. See Ambrose Whittle. The 1920 census seems to indicate that he was living at the Richmond County Jail, where the census taker listed all of the inmates as part of his family! Fortunately we find no Whittle's on the list. No record has been found of any children from his marriage to Mary.
