Ed White's father, Edward White Sr. died Nov. 1, 1978 and is buried at United States Military Academy Post Cemetery at West Point NY, the same cemetery where Ed White II is buried.

The mothers name is Patricia Eileen White but I have no information of her.

There is an official website for Astronaut Ed White II which is http://www.cmgww.com/historic/white/index.php

Thanks for linking the site Joe. Some good gag photos of the Gemini 4 prime and back up crew.

Cheers,

Joe,

thanks for your response. I sent this info about Ed White´s parents to my 75 years old friend. Once more, thank you.

Hi Joe,

On page 2 of the photo section of the site you linked to; there are a couple of shots showing the Gemini 4 crew and their backups fooling around during a portrait session.

Here are the direct links to the pics -

Um, I thought Patricia was Ed White Jr's wife.

Mary Haller was Ed Jr.'s mother...

Man, that's even got ME confused!

Ed White Sr. was the son of Alexander and Cecilia Higgins White.

Ed White II (the astronaut) was the son of Ed Sr. and Mary (nee Haller)

Eddie White III is the son of Ed White II and Patricia (nee Finegan)

If Ed White II (the astronaut) father is Ed Sr. shouldnt the astronaut be Ed Jr. and not the II?

Where is the Jr. in this family?
