Whitman Family Album

Assembled by P. D. Crowe,Whitmaniac

Inspired by my photographer grandfather, Aubrey S. Whitman, who was born in Canso in 1888, I've made this page devoted to some of the Whitman family pictures I have from my files and yours.
I never met Aubrey; he died before I was born. I like to think he would enjoy the thought of his photos being shared with other Whitman families, and that they are part of this collection.

Any additions to the album are most welcome!
If you would like to contribute to this album but are unable to email your items to me, please contact me about sending a copy by postal mail. Thankyou! Pictures should be of any Whitman family members or direct relatives or of Whitman related items, such as professions, historical documents or items, old locations, etc.

The first time you land at this page it will probably take a long time to load because of all the graphics. Please be patient... it's worth the wait!

Please click on the links to go to the corresponding pages,where the picture will be enlarged and have a short description or history.

I have targetted an outside window for faster loading, and
hint... make two windows each 1/2 of the screen size...
the files now load onto the second window so
you don't have to keep going back to the main album page...Neat, huh?

However, I have left the "Back" link on the page in case anyone gets lost and doesn't know how to get out of it.
There are now FIVE categories to the Family Album:

PEOPLE: Portraits of family members; photos or drawings.
PLACES: Any photos of towns, homesteads, land grants, museums, etc.
ITEMS: Documents such as deeds, marriage certificates, maps, advertisements, any text files relating to Whitmans

{New!} OLD POSTCARDS from NOVA SCOTIA Documents such as deeds, marriage certificates, maps, advertisements, any text files relating to Whitmans

{New!} WHITMAN GRAVESTONES This is a new category I would like to open up. If you have found a Whitman gravestone and want to share it, please contact me to make arrangements.

Whitman Gravestones: {New!}

This is a new category I have just opened up; a page for Whitman cemetery markers. Pleasecontact me if you have a contribution to share. Many people are incapable of travelling to where the grave marker might be seen, so this is an easy passage to places that hold much sentimental and historical value.

Here are the first pages of this new category:


Spinney Whitman's Grave, Old Burying Ground, Canso, NS, Canada 


Spinney's Grave, a different view 


Caroline Nelson Harris Whitman; wife of Spinney Whitman, Old Burying Ground, Canso, NS, Canada 


Gravestone of John and Dorcas Whitman,
