Dear David, I was on line researching "Whitten" and happened to see your inquiry on "Self" which is my grandmother's maiden name I believe. My mother was born in Mineral Springs. My grandmother Evva Lee was married to Emmett Lee Whitten in approximately 1922 at the age of sixteen. Both had been orphaned for a long time. Her maiden name was either ""Cook" or "Self". Her grandmother might have been "Self". They "went across the river to get married". What river? They were married until death and my grandfather is buried in Bluff Springs Cemetery with a large contingency of "Whittens". My grandmother is buried in Chandler, AZ. This is the first possibility I have had of hearing about her name. Please reply.-I lived in Jonesboro through high school. Sincerely, Ruth Marie Thomas Nofchissey
