Whitney McKinley Rankin was the 3rd of 6 children born to James Stuart Rankin and Abbie Reta Carvell. His siblings names were: James Francis, Harold Gilbert, Madeline Lydia, Abbie Kelpheno and John Hoy Rankin.

Whitney married Mildred Irene Evans on July 14, 1918 in Portland, Multnomah, Oregon. Together they had two children: Mildred Jean Rankin and John Michael Rankin.

Whitney's second wife was Phyllis Mae
Phyllis Mae, I have not yet discovered her maiden name as our families drifted apart after Grandpa Whitney's death. Phyllis is interred in the same grave as Whitney and Mildred is interred in the grave beside him.
