John Edward Whitty was a prominent citizen of Lee, Florida. In the early 1900s, he owned a drugstore with his sons. And, in 1923, he was a member of the Florida House of Representatives for Madison County.
While googling around, I came across several photos of members of the J. E. Whitty family housed online at the Florida Memory Photographic Collection. Here are a couple of goodies:
