Was a Sallie E. Whiteman born in Carbon County PA?

Question by itsblc

My grandmother's Sallie E Gruber (Sallie E Whiteman) reflects her father as unknown on her death certificate. I have searched high and low and find no record of birth with regard to her father - or a birth record for her. She is listed as being born in 1889 in Weissport, PA but there aren't any Whiteman names to be found in PA that could possibly be her father. Do you think my grandmother just took the Whiteman name since she apparently didn't know her real father? I'm at a loss -- what directions should I go next?
Thanks for you help.

On the 1900 Census there is a Whiteman family living in Carbon Co. Sarah J Whiteman 11, a daughter of Oliver Whiteman 38 and Mary 24. There is also a daughter called Sadie E of 1893. All born PA. In PA 1900 there are two other Whiteman families (at least), all the parents born in Russia. Andrew Wilson

As a starting point is this your Sallie in 1900?

Yes, this Sallie E Gruber was my grandmother. And her Marriage Certificate indicates that she was "Sallie E. Whiteman. But both her mother and father's names are unknown.

She went on to have only a son and a daughter that my mother and her brother knew of; but now I find a Lovedae Ester Gruber buried in the St Paul's Methodist Church of Mauch Chunk that was comletely unknown to her son and daughter. Were Sallie's parents also a secret. How do we find out?

Thanks for any insights you can provide.

Sorry, Lovedae Esther Gruber wasn't buried at this church. I was reviewing her Baptism record from this church. Lovedae was born on 8/8/1913 and baptised on 08/20/1913. Can not find any other information on her death or burial location. (apparently didn't live very long)
