Jan. 21, 1823; m. 2d Julia CROOKER. He was known as General WHITNEY. When about 20 years of age he was sent by his father from Binghamton to Philadelphia with a drove of cattle, 17 in num- ber. Part of his way was through a wilderness with nothing but marked trees to direct his path. He went alone, starting late in the fall. He drove to Great Bend, thence through the Nine Partners to Hop Bottom on Tunkhannock creek, and thence to Thorn Bottom. The cattle subsisted often by browsing in the forests.

There he sold the cattle and purchased mercantile goods which he placed upon Pennsylvania wagons and transported to Middletown, Pa., on the Susquehanna. There he put them on what was called a Durham boat
