Apr 21, 1761; m. May 29, 1785, Mindwell HARDY, b. Nov 27, 1763; d. Apr 28, 1853. Elijah WHITNEY, b. April 21, 1761, was the son of Thomas WHITNEY, of Shrewsbury, and his wife, Anna GOULD; and by the history of the town belonged to the John WHITNEY family, of Watertown. He (Elijah) died Aug 24, 1817 in his 57th year. His wife, Mrs. Mindwell (HARDY) WHITNEY, was born Nov 27, 1763, and died Apr 28, 1853, ae. 89 years, 5 months, and 1 day. Elijah WHITNEY was a handsome man, and an excellent farmer; and his father Thomas seems to have relied upon him mainly for business advice. When the "Shoe," in 1762, was annexed to Westborough, Thomas (the father) wanted to remain a citizen of Shrewsbury, and his request was gratified; but he, however, yielded to Elijah's request, Mar 12, 1793, and his farm, which had become Elijah's property, was annexed to Westborough. He was kind to his chil- dren, and alowed his son Elijah to leave his trade and pursue a course in the col- leges, and graduate a learned man. His comparatively early death was a fearful blow to his sons, who were just passing into manhood. He was frugal and careful in his life, and left a fair amount of real estate to be divided among his children; but there were so many that each received but a small share. He d. Aug 24, 1817; res. Shrewsbury and Westboro, Mass. 2667. i. AZUBAH, b. Oct 13, 1785; m. ----- ADAMS. 2668. ii. NAHAM, b. Jan 7, 1788; m. Susanna ADAMS. 2669. vii. ELIJAH, b. Nov, 26, 1798; m. Cornelia L.
