I believe she eventually became Lexa Ann Bentley of Bradenton, Florida. This would make her the daughter of Robert Whitney of the Whitney Stables in Kentucky. Robert Whitney’s brother Richard was a Muncie resident. I can’t remember how the Whitneys and the Spurgeons were related exactly — maybe a Minerva Whitney married one of the Spurgeons? I don’t quite know, and it’s 30 years since Murray Bartholome and I huddled in the Fort Wayne library making family trees.
Anyway: hello, cousin.
