The Whitney Family of Connecticut
by S. Whitney Phoenix
(New York: 1878)
Transcribed by Robert L. Ward.
In sending forth this work, which has cost me much time and labor during the last ten years, I wish to acknowledge, to the fullest extent, my obligation to MR. D. WILLIAMS PATTERSON, of Newark Valley, New York, who has been my assistant since 1873. Not only has he acted as my amanuensis in preparing for the printer the vast mass of crude material gathered by myself since 1867, but he has also added largely to the bulk and value of the book by his own researches, expecially in the female lines. He has, moreover, examined on my behalf the records of almost every town of importance in southern Connecticut and the eastern part of Long Island, acting at all times with intelligence, rare conscientiousness and indefatigable industry. Much of such merit as the work may be adjudged to possess should justly be ascribed to the labors of this accomplished genealogist. Thanks are also due to MR. JOHN A. BOUTELLE, of Woburn, Mass., who was of some assitance to me in the earlier part of my task.
