Horace Whitney, son of Joel and Abigal Holden Whitney, says that he was born in Westminster, Mass., April 26, 1802. He lived at home and worked on the farm,which was on North Common(so called) and in his father's cooper shop until 1823, when he removed to Bos- ton and worked in the family of Joshua Davis, dry goods merchant doing business on Broad Street. In 1824 he removed to Charlestown and worked in a box shop. In 1825 he removed to Fitchburg, Mass. and worked in a woolen mill at or near S. Fitchburg; he was fore- man of the finishing department. In 1827(January) he joined the Masonic Fraternity, becoming Master Mason. In 1829 he removed to Westminster again and formed a co-partnership with his elder broth- er Joseph H., and bought his father's farm. In this year, April 8, he married Mary Sawin of Westminster. In 1833 he removed to Hub- bardston, Mass., the firm having bought a farm and large lumber lot and mill. They prosecuted the lumber business, manufacturing boot boxes and selling them in Worcester, Mass. The firm bought and used one of the earliest Woodworth Planing Machines. In 1845 the partnership was dissolved, Horace taking the farm at Westmin- ster and Joseph taking the Hubbardston property. Horace supported his aprents the remainder of their lives. In 1855 he sold the farm and removed to Westminster Village, where he was employed in chair making. In 1856 he removed to Gardner and went into the employ of the Heywood Brothers, marking and cutting lumber. In Nov. 1865 he removed to Boston and engaged in the chair manufacture. On Jan. 7, 1891 Mary, his wife, departed this life. Dictated and signed by Horace Whitney. Who died Sep 18, 1895
