Paul WHITNEY, born in Petersham, Worcester Co., Mass., was known from early manhood as a teacher by profession. During the first years of the century while teaching in Northern Vermont he met and married Miss Dollie DARWIN, of Hines- burg, Vt., daughter of Samuel DARWIN, of Rutland, Vt., who was so loyal to King George, over the sea, and the Tories, his lands were confiscated and he removed to Hinesburg. She was a person of acknowledged beauty, and to them was born one son, Samuel D., named for her father. Paul was a twin brother of Barnabas WHIT- NEY, also a teacher, and so alike in personal appearance they could exchange places in the schoolroom without being generally observed by the pupils. Both had fine faces, blond in complexion, tall and erect in form, with a dignified and graceful bearing. Paul possessed a poetic nature and gentle disposition, and was in Ma., verse and rhyme, in writing epitaphs, and ever ready with some anecdote or pun, making him a genial companion even in declining years. And though esthetic in taste, he had an admiring eye for fine horses and was very fond of animals and pets, and this characteristic is especially marked in this branch of the family. He spent the greater portion of his life in Dunham Ca., near the Vermont line, where he removed while still young, and married a second wife. To them were born ten children, all of whom have died but one daughter, Harriet, Mrs. LEAVITT, who still resides in the Dominion. The names of the sons were Caius, Marcus, Wm. Wallace, Paul and Barnabas, the youngest. Here he was civil magistrate for more than thirty years, continuing his profession, teaching in the government schools. He was a member of the Church of England. He lived to a good age, his mind clear and active, his body elastic, until prostrated with dropsy of the heart, which continued for some time and of which he died at 82 years. He was one to make friends every- where and was always a welcome guest. To know him was to love him. He d. Oct.] 30, 1859; res. Bolton Centre, Canada. 2363. i. CAROLINE, b. May 28, 1809; m.
