It was passed down in the Family that George went to "Hollywood" as a Scene Designer after serving in WWI via his father's obit. he was living in Pasadena, Calif. in 1931. In his mother's obit he was living in Dunbar, PA. in 1921. I was told that he came back to PA. in his later years. And was buried next to his brother Louis in Lafayette Memorial Park. But further research showed although he came back to visit he was buried in Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, Calif. with his wife Venetia.

In George's W.W.I. Registration Card found his signature as George Burkes Whetzel. In 1920 Census found George in Connellsville, Pennsylvania with wife Venitia.
