*NOTES from Lisa

One way to work out resolvement of a problem is to lay out the contents/ingredients of
that problem, which helps to tell you what you have to work with; what you need to have
yet; and what you should do next! That is what this first issue is ccmposed of; mainly
the information that I have, to work with at this time; responses to this issue will let me
know what I need to have yet; and responses will help us all to know what we should do next
in our researches. So, each issue will "grow" with more helpful information than a previous
issue gave.

Explanations on some things are needed in this issue, to help you all know what it's format
will be. This Whitney newsletter is not just one that prints your query in a long line of
queries and then forgets about it. We will print our subscribers queries as often as needed!
Plus, I myself will do research to help in any way possible to find answers for my subscri-
bers!  I do this for free, for subscribers, through the pages of this newsletter.  Personal
research rates outside of the newsletter are $15/hour, which includes all time, gas to the
various cemeteries, etc that I'm researching, xerox copies, mailing fees, etc. So, let me
know what you need specifically; the phrase "need information" is certainly a good phrase
to use in queries, but if you are specific in what you need, I'll know exactly what to help
you look "for, (such as Great-Uncle Joe's marriage record); and I will print my findings, if
any, in the newsletter for the benefit of all subscribers.

Some letters/queries came to me very recently, and I haven't had time to research them out,
it's 96 miles (round trip) to the state archives in Des Moines, Iowa, and I'll go there to
look for information for you, and will hopefully be able to answer some query problems with
October's issue.

We are a registered, with Iowa tax permit, business in mail order genealogy.  It is my "hobby
job" that I enjoy many hours in doing. In private life, I am a nurse. I'm older, 62 now, and
have been an LPN (LVH in Calif/Tx); since 1986. I recently graduated out of a part-time pro-
gram towards an Associate Degree in Nursing (Registered Nurse). At this time (June 1996) I'm
a-waiting to go to state board for my R. N. License.  I am legally married, I say "legally*
because I've been questioned about it, for reason that I have a different name than my hus-
band. I kept my Barnett name, it's too difficult to change at this age in life.  My husband's
name is Donald Yarger.  He's 66, disabled.  I'm explaining this because I want to let you know
that HOUSE OF GENEALOGY is not some big corporation with no time to work personally with you
on your research needs. That's what "makes" my newsletters! Helping my readers!.

I also want you folks to know that future issues will not be filled with idle chatter from
me! It will be filled with every scrap of information I can get into it. Yes, there's need
to explain things at times, but it will be minimal, after this issue.

TAXES; Some Iowa counties have "Local Option Taxes* in addition to sales taxes.  I'm required
by law to charge sales-tax and local option taxes for those counties. I have a list of the
counties and how much the tax is, if you need this information.  This is for Iowa subscribers.
Surrounding states now work with Iowa, in collecting appropriately owed taxes for business
done interstate, and I have been informed that I need to contact those states to see if I'm
supposed to collect taxes on those subscribers too.  I'll absorb any tax cost on anyone from
those states until I find out for sure.  Those states are: lllinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebras-
ka, South Dakota, and Minnesota.
************************************************************************************************
Printing and mailing fees are quite costly, and commanded the $20 fee for
the subscriptions. However, even though I'm not "super-typer" and will be
making occasional typing errors, I feel the information given to you is as
valuable to you if I type it, as if a professional company printed it for
me,..so for that reason, I'm typing it myself, and then just have the copy
place make copies for me, which will be "savings".
...And for that reason, I was able to lower the price to $15 a year instead
of the $20 which was stated in the ad. Some of you have not responded yet as
to whether you would like the $5 refund, or the 2 extra issues. Please let
me know. Thanks!...
 And thanks (!) to all of you who sent letters of gratitude for passing the savings on to you!

[p. 4]

                           Q U E R I E S

1) JONAS WHITNEY, the son of Benjamin and Nancy (FULLER) WHITNEY, was born
at Marlborough, New Hampshire 4 July 1805. He taught sucessfully at Seneca
Fall, Aurora, and Buffalo, all in New York; Shawneetown, Illinois near St.
Louis, MO., Liberty, Mo. near St. Louis; removed to Columbus, Ohio in 1846
owing to ill health; returned to St. Louis in September of that year and
has several employments until 1854, when teaching recommenced as principal
of one of it's public schools and so continues. He married Charlotte FORMAN
of Ithaca, N.Y. in December 1835.

Nine children were born of this union as follows: Emilie (1837) Charles
(1837), Mary Ellen (?), Ida Isabel (1853), Harriett (Hattie) 1857; Mary (?),
William Jonas (1867), William Henry (?), Franklin (?).

Would like to correspond with any descendants of this family.

Gerald H. Forman, 1508 West View Drive, Berkeley, CA., 94705-1657
***************************************************************************
GERALD: If this issue does not bring any correspondents of descent from
this family, please let me know and I'll help search for living family mem-
bers for you...Lisa

2) Who were the parents of THOMAS LAUGHLIN BROOKS WHITNEY? Supposedly born
4 Jan 1834 in Madison County, Ohio.

T. E. Whitney, 5646 Spring St. Omaha, Nebraska, 68106
***************************************************************************
T. E., As of this date I have the following "Thomas", none are what you've
asked for, but may be of help further down the line;

These are all THOMAS WHITNEY:
a. b: 1627/1629, England                         
b. b: England (is father to "a" above)          
c. b: ca 1517                                           
d. b: 1381, Herford, England  
e. b: 28 July 1594, Herford, England    
f. b: 24 Aug 1656 Watertown, MA.
g. b: 1563 Lambert Marsh, Surrey, England
h. b: 25 July 1587 London, Eng.
i. b. 27 Dec 1640
And in the meantime, I have sent for some genealogical records on Madison
County, Ohio, to see if I can find something for you on your Thomas's par-
ents. (census records). Before 1850 they only listed heads of household,
but I'll know who was there then, ..I'll also check on histories of that
county, they sometimes list biographies of people living there.. .Lisa
***************************************************************************

3) I'm seeking information on my great-great-grandmother. LYDIA WHITNEY was
born 1806 in Maine, married Philander CASTLE 10 May 1827 in Meigs County,
Ohio. died in 1874 near Camp Point, Adams County, Illinois. Buried Hebron
Cemetery, Adams County, Ill. Also seeking information on Philander CASTLE
born 1799 in Vermont, according to census, died 1886, near Camp Point, in
Adams county, Ill. Buried Hebron Cemetery, Adams County, Illinois.

R. W. Dorsey, 5925 W. 78th St., Prairie Village, Kansas, 66208
***************************************************************************

R. W.; At this time I have just two "Lydia Whitney", which aren't the ones
you need. They are:
a. b: 1632, Sherborn, Middlesex, Mass.
b. b: 1785 in Maine, married Daniel BRACKETT.

                              (4)                (continued)

[p. 5]

                           (continued from previous page)
I will see if I can locate some records from Ohio for you too. Ohio had less counties in
the early 1800's, however, I have a list of their parent counties, and will see what I can
find.  On CASTLE, I don't see a "Philander" listed in my records, but here are seme excerpts
of information in my files: (these may give new avenues to research):

1) Henry CASTLE, (b: 1613 - d: 1698) Came from England to Fairfield, CT. 1635; then went to
   Woodbury, CT. Was married around 1666 to Abigail DICKERSON, daughter of Thomas DICKERSON;
   married Mary _____: (she married 2nd, Daniel FINCH).

2) Susan LOWE, Cecil County, Maryland; 4 Sept 1688; had 150 acres; tract named "Castle Green"
   ...escheated estate of Ralph CASTLE, who went to England in 1671; having granted his land
   to Susan ALLOME; the rent to be paid by her father Nicholas ALLOME. Susan ALLOME was
   married to John DARNALL, of Calvert Co., Maryland; on his death, married Henry LOWE.
*******************************************************************************************
4) WHITNEY
   FAIRBANKS
   CURTIS
   ROBERTS
Need parents of JABEZ WHITNEY who married 20 Oct 1771 Medway,
Mass., to Experience FAIRBANKS. Daughter PRISCILLA WHITNEY
born 4 Feb 1774, Wrentham; married 1793 Peru, Mass., to Com-
fort CURTIS. Their son Levi CURTIS married New York 1826 to
Climena ROBERTS. Settled Wyoming County, New York.

JoAnn Schiefelbein, 8924 West 10th St., Wichita, Kansas 67212
*****************************************************************************
JoAnn; I do have a number of Whitney listings that I have not "processed"
yet, (I don't have a computer, so have to do all indexing and records by
hand) and in a quick glance through them, see one JABEZ WHITNEY, he's on a
tax list for 1816 in Meigs County, Ohio. I have a list of New England marria-
ges prior to 1700, which I will list later in this newsletter, some of the
listings may connect to your Jabez. Although Present day Medway, MA., is in
Norfolk County, in 1771 it was then Suffolk County, and didn't become Nor-
folk County until 1793. Perhaps "old time" Suffolk County records may help
you in this.  Let me know what you find and if you need me to help you check
older records. I'll be glad to send for old time census records if needed,
as I do have my own microfiche/microfilm reader, and I'll purchase the cen-
sus records and check them out, and print any findings for all readers...Lisa
*****************************************************************************
5) My problem is CALVIN WHITNEY who appeared in the Thomaston, (Rockport) Maine
area with his brother Haynes, supposedly from Woodstock, VT about 1800.  He
married Eliza EVERTON. In the Whitney Genealogy by Pierce, he (Calvin) was
misplaced in JONATHAN WHITNEY's family in Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire, and
although I have been able to prove that another Calvin (married to Polly WILLIAMS)
was the sort of Jonathan, but not where "my" Calvin belongs.  I'm beginning to
think he was beamed down from another planet!

Marion (Whitney) Martin,  2110 Tiger Links Drive, Henderson, Nevada, 89012
*****************************************************************************
Marion; The CALVIN WHITNEY I have listed in my records is apparently the one
you have mentioned.  I don't have the book by Pierce (yet), but did order
it, and I'll need to check it as a baseline, for helping you sort this out.
The Calvin I have was born 25 May 1788, in Fitzwilliam, N.H., and was mar-
ried to Polly WILLIAMS.  This Calvin's parents are listed as JONATHAN WHITNEY
and Abigail HEMMINWAY.  I've been unable to locate the person who wrote the
information on the chart, and can't print her chart without her consent and
knowing about it. May I ask readers to check their correspondents and see if
anyone has an address for Susan Wright; The address I have is Menio Park, CA,
but my latest mailing to her was returned to me.  Please let me know, so I
can get her consent to use her Whitney information.  In the meantime, I will
check on Maine, early 1800's for information for you..Lisa
*****************************************************************************
I've been asked about why I wanted to do a Whitney newsletter.  The reason is because I,
Lisa Ellen Barnett, am a Whitney descendant! I'm just starting on that line in my ancestry,
                                         (5)

[p. 6]

and have some microfilms of my ancestors area (Illinois), but haven't gotten them read
yet, as my machine's roll-film attachment just recently arrived.  I'll have any results
in the next issue. If anyone needs census records checked, let me know!...Lisa
*****************************************************************************************
6) This comes from subscriber Kenneth L. Whitney, who kindly sent in this
query almost a year ago: 21 Aug 1995:
"For the past year I have been researching the genealogy of my family, who
are descendants of JOHN and ELINOR WHITNEY of Watertown, MA.  I am descended
through John and Elinor's son BENJAMIN WHITNEY"

Kenneth L. Whitney, 616 Piping Rock Drive, Silver Spring, Maryland 20905
**************************************************************************
Kenneth; In the next pages, I have put some charts on your BENJAMIN WHITNEY,
these charts were sent to me from the Richardson-Sloane Genealogical library
at 1019 Mound St., Suite 301, Davenport, Iowa 52803, with their consent to
use them in the Whitney newsletter. Let me know what else you need, as I've
got quite a few more that branch out from the people who are listed on the
charts that are printed in this issue...Lisa
**************************************************************************
7) Who were the parents of JOHN WHITNEY, b: 1780-1790 who married Charlotte
PROUT(E)/PROUTY about 1820? She was born 1791 in Winchendon, Worcester Co.,
MA., the daughter of Isaac PROUTY. They had a son, STEPHEN M. WHITNEY who
was born in Boston, Suffolk County, MA.  He married Ellen Percy CADY, and
he died in 1864 in Syracuse, Onondaga Co., New York.

Frances Molsberry, 7921 Waterfalls Ave, Las Vegas,NV 89128
**************************************************************************
Frances; Please let me know if Ellen's name of "Percy" is a surname.  If so,
I'll capitalize it the next time so Whitney researchers who need that con-
nection will see it more easily in the newsletters, (thanks!). As mentioned
in my letter to you, that I have some PROUT/PROUTY information, and said I

                                (6)

[p. 7]

other misc. listings, but these are the main ones that I mentioned in
my letter. The preface pages say that the listings contain (when known)
besides the marriage dates, the maiden name of the wife; the marriage
date or birth of a first child; and birth/death years of both partners.
These names, dates, and places, may help you make connections to Whitney.
Let me know what you need next...Lisa

NOTE: Frances' ancestry listings are printed in the following pages, and
shows her connection to Whitney through her great-grandmother ALICE WHIT-

************************************************************************** 8) Any information on family or ancestors of MARGARET GRAY WHITNEY, born 27 Feb 1817 Rutland, VT., married Moses CLEVELAND 9 Nov. Ravenna, Ohio. Died 1 Jan 1879. Father, WILLIAM WHITNEY; mother Hannah __?__ Jacqualyn Coniglio, 27 Park Acre Rd., Pittsford, New York 14534 ************************************************************************** Jacqualyn: Here is a list of the "Margaret's" I have at this time. I don't have yours in this list, but these may come in handy later on: a) b: 31 July 1651 England b) b: 1570 England c) Margaret (VAUGHN)WHITNEY, b: ca: 1550; wife of EUSTACE WHITNEY. d) Margaret (REICE/REECE)WHITNEY, b: ca: 1499; wife of WATKIN WHITNEY. e) Margaret (WYE)WHITNEY, b: ca: 1495 England; wife of ROBERT WHITNEY. May I ask clarification on where Margaret's "Gray" name comes from? I can see she is a "born Whitney" by her father's name, could it be her mother's maiden name?? I have more "broadened out" information on the listed "Margaret's" if you should need it. If there's anything else I can be of some help to you, please let me know...Lisa ***************************************************************************************** ...They say "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach"; I don't agree! I think the way to a man's heart is through sincere love, caring, trust, faith, and belief in him! ***************************************************************************************** I have a large amount of infarmation that I am working on each day, indexing, and so on, and so there may be more Margaret's; Calvin's; Jabez's; etc, that I haven't reached yet. I will crossmatch any query that cones from now to October's issue, to see if it has what you need, and will watch for answers through the mail, plus will send for, or research any records possible, to help you find answers. The information on the rest of this page and other pages is what I've checked from Iowa. Some of the families may connect to your ancestor. It isn't sorted out yet or indexed as I've been collecting as much as possible for this issue, so you'll have other records to compare with besides queries. I hope some of you will be helped by it!..Lisa ***************************************************************************************** Lucas County, Iowa Cemeteries: a) ALLIE WHITNEY; 11 July 1886; age 17 yrs, 9 mo., 8days. b) JAMES WHITNEY; 25 July 1821-3 May 1903 c) Mary __?__ WHITNEY; (wife of JAMES WHITNEY) 3 Feb 1823-24 Sept 1892 These listings are in Calvary Cemetery, also known as Catholic Cemetery, 1/4 mile E. of intersection of Highway 14 and Ilion Ave., in Chariton, Iowa; south side of gravel road. d) DAVID WHITNEY, 4 Feb 1892; age 43 yrs, 6 mo., 18 days.

   (Iowa records; continued)

a) LEROY J. WHITNEY; father; 15 March 1850-1 Dee 1931

b) Alice J CHRYOTIE, wife of Leroy; mother; 14 Oct 1905

These listings are from Riverside Cemetery, Spencer, Iowa.


In researching Fayette County, Iowa records, I found a biography on ALFRED E.
WHITNEY. (B.F. Bowen & CO., 1910; Oelwein area Hist. Soc): which in brief, says
he was born in the town of Scotland, province of Ontario, Canada, 13 Septem-
ber 1856; son of WILLIAM A. WHITNEY and Emily (MALCOLM)WHITNEY; with WILLIAM
A. WHITNEY being the son of LOUIS WHITNEY. William's family moved to Fayette
Co. when he was 5 years old. When grown, he was a guard at the Ft. Madison,
Iowa, prison; later was appointed deputy warden at the state prison at Anamo-
sa, Iowa. He married Carrie B. CARPENTER in August 1897. He was a Republican.
***********************************************************************************
These marriages are in my records, but I'm unsure of the source. If known, I
will give due credit:

   a) ANDREW (?) WHITNEY and Mary TODD, 31 Dee 1859; Hardin Co., Iowa

   b) J. G. WHITNEY and Addie DAVIS, 15 April 1866; Hardin Co., Iowa
***********************************************************************************
Second story of Jasper County, Iowa courthouse has stored papers including
a tax list for 1849; it says, besides other names:
   "Non-residents were taxed as follows:
    THEODORE WHITNEY $400.00"
***********************************************************************************
History of Kossuth Co., Iowa (S. J. Clarke Pub Co., 1913; By Benjamin Reed):

   a) Lists a WHITNEY & MCCOY drugstore that opened in 1870.

   b) Says "Drs. MCCOY and WHITNEY came in 1870. The junior partner did not
      remain long".

   c) Says "The WHITTEMORE Creamery Co. has, for it's officers.........and
      A. M. WHITNEY, buttermaker and manager"

   d) Says "The schools are successfully conducted by the following teaching
      force....and EVA WHITNEY, first primary.  She has held her position with
      universal satisfaction for the past 14 years" (There's no date for Eva,
      but the information was published in 1913, and says the school was first
      erected in 1882, present one erected 1911, 2 years previous to the pub-
      lished information).

   e) Says "Station agents at the present time are...... and W. L. WHITNEY at
      the Milwaukee Depot, the appointment being made in 1912.
*******************************************************************************
Research of Lucas County, Iowa (next to my county) shows these marriages;
I'll probably come upon more, but here's what I've found so far:

   a) WARREN WHITNEY, 45, and Adia GIGER, 34, 22 Feb 1876

   b) C. W. WHITNEY and Ida M. DUDLEY, 12 Aug 1882. He was 22, she was 20.

   c) MARY ELLEN WHITNEY, and Adam C. REIBEL, 23, 11 Sept 1883 (I didn't find
      an age for Mary).

ELI WHITNEY; I'm anxious to know if I'm closely related/or related at all to this line. This inventor of the cotton gin was born 8 Dec 1765 in West- borough, MASS. He died 8 January 1825 at New Haven CT. Having only an elementary schooling didn't reduce the fact that he was known to have an inquiring mind, and exceptional manual dexterity. He decided, at age 19, to go to college and graduated from Yale in 1792. Work as a tutor took him South, to Savannah, GA, where a widow inspired him to turn his inventive talents to the creation of a machine that would clean the seeds from cotton, which was being done by hand, a wearisome and fatiguing job! In April 1793 his gin was demonstrated. In New Haven, Ct., he obtained a patent on this invention, 14 March 1794. There was pirating of his invention, resulting in expensive lawsuits, until in 1807 a successful suit gave him a "modest" return....Eli Whitney was overburdened with debts. In 1798 he got a con- tract to make 10,000 muskets for the U.S. government, and was to have them ready in 1800. He failed to make his time schedule, and the last of the 10,000 muskets wasn't delivered until 1809. He did his work in his shop at "Whitneyville, near New Haven, CT."...The information I have on Eli doesn't say anything about a wife, family, etc, so this will be another research for me to work on....Lisa ************************************************************************* .....If you send in a query on a surname other than Whitney, (which is in the Whitney ancestry) would you please explain the connection to Whitney! This will let all readers know just how "Susie Jones" or "whoever" fits in- to the Whitney family, and it will be of help to everyone. Thanks!...Lisa ************************************************************************* The title of this newsletter is WHITNEY NEWS AND GENEALOGY", which extends the offer and request, to all readers, to send in their current family news Has there been a recent wedding in your family? Death? Divorce? Birth?, or is there some bit of happy (or sad) news you'd like to share with others? We are all the Whitney family! And to keep our records up-to-date on our "family". I'm asking for news items!...Lisa *************************************************************************** EARLY OHIO TAX RECORDS 1) DANIEL WHITNEY, (Huron Co., Poll book 1824) 2) ELISHA WHITNEY, ( Athens Co., Tax List 1810) 3) ELISHA WHITNEY, (Gallia Co., tax record 1814) 4) EUNICE WHITNEY, (Hardin Co., tax list 1821) 5) EUNICE WHITNEY, (Hocking Co., tax list 1825) 6) JABEZ WHITNEY, (Meigs Co., tax list 1816) 7) JOHN WHITNEY, (Defiance Co., voter list 1845) 8) MILTON WHITNEY, (LorainCo., tax list 1824) 9) NATHAN WHITNEY, (Huron Co., tax list 1825) 10) NATHAN WHITNEY, JR, (Huron Co., tax list 1825) **************************************************************************** If anyone needs further information on "any" Whitney listed in this issue, please let me know who, and what you need and I'll help you in the search. All findings will be printed for the benefit of all subscribers. If I have left a name out, or made errors, let me know. (I don't have computer help!) (20) ...Lisa
