David WHITNEY was born in Tunbridge, Vt., 1812. Removed with his family of wife and five children to Wisconsin in 1851 and settled near Fort Atkinson, Jeffer- son Co., on 165 acres of land. He was an industrious, economical farmer of the true New England type. Two children, Jennie and Etta, were added to the family on this Wisconsin homestead. From a small clearing of 15 acres and a log house im- provement followed improvement until when the farm was sold in 1882 the passer-by witnessed a fine brick residence, large barns, a fine orchard, a cheese factory, and all modern improvements. Thus honest toil was amply rewarded. From the farm the family moved to Fort Atkinson, and after remaining one year removed to Whitewater to their present place of residence, on Peck St., where David WHIT- NEY died Feb. 23, 1884. He was buried in Greenwood cemetery at Fort Atkinson, awaiting the resurrection of the just. He united with the church of the United Brethren in Christ (a body of Christians holding views in common with the Method- ists) in 1862, and soon after every member of the family connected themselves with the church of their father. Two of them, Austin D. and D.J., entered the ministry of that church. He d. Feb. 24, 1884; res. Chelsea, Vt., and Whitewater, Wis. 5637. i. M. EMELINE, b. Aug. 14, 1841; m.
