Harrison O. WHITNEY, born in Northboro, Mass., lost his parents in early life and was taken in charge by an uncle in Quincy, Mass. He later on married and here his two children were born. In the early sixties he removed to Haverhill, Mass. By trade he was a bookbinder, but Haverhill being a shoe city, he soon engaged in the manufacture of paper boxes, mostly for the shoe trade. He descended from a family of ministers and inherited the clerical disposition and was formed by nature for the profession, but the lack of education caused by the death of his parents, and his consequent lack of confidence in his ability prevented him doing the work for which he seemed in every other way so admirably fitted. He was devoted to his church and religion and was for many years, I think twenty-five, clerk of the First Parish church of Haverhill, and also its Sunday-school superintendent. He died in Sept., 1890, having lived as nearly a perfect life in his quiet, modest way as is possi- ble for human life to attain. He d. Sept. 10, 1890; res. Haverhill, Mass. 7667. i. HENRY OTIS, b.
