Beginning here is the information from Jim Whitney, mentioned on page 23, July '96 issue: Dear Lisa: Thanks for sending the Whitney News and Genealogy so quickly. Reading it has been enjoyable and informative. I am enclosing pedigree charts, a descendant chart, family group sheets, and a newspaper article that you might find interesting. Unfortunately, my great aunt, in whose belongings I found the article, had neglected to note the date or the paper that it was printed in. It relates to the J.G. Whitney that you mention on p. 8 of the July newlsetter. The text has also been entered in a more abbreviated form in the family group sheet for Giles E. Whitney. Now this might be a bit confusing (I know it is for me), but the Pierce genealogy, which has the source of most of my database, seems to have gotten Irving Giles name entered incorrectly. It is my conclusion, based on the wedding to Adaline Davis, that J. G. Whitney (in the July news- letter), Giles E. Whitney (in the Pierce genealogy and my database) and Irving G. Whitney (in the newspaper clipping) are really the same person. If I had to make a guess as to his real name, I think I would go with the name Irving G. The family group sheet for Andrew Clow Whitney and Mary Todd, is enclosed and is mentioned on p.8 of the July issue. He is my great-grandfather. I thought you might be interested in some of the family detail. This leads to the first of my inquiries. I have not been able to trace the ancestry of Mary Gardner Todd, Andrew Clow's wife. I have a fair amount of informa- tion on the Todd's (the family Bible and other genealogical information) but would be very interested in the Gardner side of the family. Also enclosed is a family group sheet for my grandfather Andrew Melvin Whitney. You mentioned him in the quotes from the History of Kossuth Co. (Iowa). He was the son of Andrew Clow Whitney. The descendant chart shows the Whitney family descended from the John Whit- ney who arrived in the Boston area about 1635. Much of the actual Whitney lineage in these charts is taken from Pierce's genealogy. The associated lines are mostly my own research. I can provide family group charts for many of the families that you see in the descendant and pedigree charts. Of course these provide another level of detail, describing the siblings and other family details, including some text notes describing the individuals. I can send those family group charts later if you want. I am interested in the Whitney and Todd families in Iowa and would also be interested in knowing your connection with the Whitney name/family. Jim Whitney, 2410 Prairie Rd, Madison, Wisconsin, 53711 ****************************************** Jim: I always appreciate information sent in for the newsletters! and I'm sure the other readers will benefit from your charts and other items! Thanks! As for J. G., Giles E., and Irving G., possibly being the same per- son, let's just wait a bit on that as I will be researching more Iowa records and the "problem" may straighten itself out. However, if it doesn't, I will certainly research specific records here in Iowa, to try to help untangle who-is-who. On the names Todd and Gardner, I have another newsletter starting January 1997, called THE MELTING POT OF ANCESTORS and is for any surname and any location. Queries are free to everyone, (continued next page) (6)

I thought they had come from Illinois, but I've found that their son (my grandfather) was born in Iowa. I also have not found what early ancestor I descend from. When I have something more definite to offer, then I'll print it for every one. I don't know a lot about my own family as I was raised in foster homes and Children's Homes during the 1940's. Your information in this issue may bring some additonal information to you. After you know what results from this issue, let me know what you still need or want printed, or what you still need me to help research for you. On the other family group charts you mentioned, the more I have in my files, the more I am able to help the compiler as I write every surname in my re- cords, and I pass compilers names on to other people who order things from me, or who send for researcher names from me....Lisa ****************************************************************************** DESCENDANT CHART OF JIM WHITNEY, (Madison, Wisconsin)

HUSBAND NOTES: Giles E. Whitney
Giles and Andrew came to Alden in 1857. Giles made three trips
to the Rocky Mountains during the time that gold was being found
there. In the spring of 1860 he made his first tour of inspection
of Pikes Peak, accompanied by Messrs Sibley and Thompson, and John
W. Kinney, father of Chris and Clark Kinney of Buckeye. Council
Bluffs was the outfitting point at that time, and Julesberg was
the place of disappointment for many. He once saw two
partners divide there, one turning back. They even sawed the
wagon in half, each taking a set of wheels. The first trip was
disastrous. He returned and spent thewinter at the 'American
House' in Alden, then under the management of M J Davis, returned
to Colorado in the spring and stayed for a year and a half. The
third trip the Alden party joined up with the Bozeman train and
continued to Virginia City. He returned to Alden in 1865
and married Adaline Davis, daughter of M J Davis. They had moved
to Alden in 1857 from Michigan.

LEFT: Xeroxed photo of Irving G. Whitney.
RIGHT: Story on Irving G. Whitney:A
  For more of its earliest settlers Alden was, for many years, a sort of
base of supplies from which they could strike at the newer and still
more wonderful Far We4st--the West of gold and buffaloes, of war-
painted Indians and alkaline deserts. Crossing the plains was a
hazard which hardy young men took with full knowledge that others,
as brave and strong as themselves, had undertaken at the cost of their
lives. But this furnished no hindrance. It rather added a new allure-
ment to the vision of golden gulches where, if once found, the yellow
nuggets could be had for the picking up.
  Irving G. Whitney was one of these. He made three trips into the
Rockies, crossing the plains six times inside of six years. He was born
March 4, 1836 in Franklin county, Vermont and arrived in Alden with
his brother Andrew in June, 1857. The two worked together at the
carpenter trade for one and a half years. In the spring of 1860 he
started on his first tour of inspection of Pike's Peak, the land of en-
chantment. He was accompanied by Messrs. Sibley and Thompson
and John W. Kinney, father of Chris and Clark Kinney of Buckeye.
Council Bluffs was the out-fitting point at that time and from there
pilgrims continued the journey in large trains for the purpose of mutual
protection from Indians. Notwithstanding this, raids were frequent
and rude headboards were frequently seen beside the trail marked
"Unknown. Killed by Indians." Julesberg was a point of discour-
agement where many turned back for the states again. At Julesberg
Mr. Whitney saw two partners divide, one going west and one east.
They even sawed the wagon reach in two, each taking a pair of wheels.
This first trip was disastrous. He worked two weeks and laid up $40.
Mountain fever struck him then and he lay for eight weeks more dead
than alive. He gave the $40 to the doctor who saved his life and his
watch ot a man for letting him ride back to Iowa in the hind end of
his freight wagon. A buffalo was killed the second day's travel this
side of Denver and furnished food for much of the way home.
  Mr. Whitney spent the winter at the "American House" in Alden,
then under the management of M. J. Davis, and was back in Colorado
the next spring. He remained there a year and a half. Happening
to meet Gurley and Martin Pritchard, he came home with them.
  In the spring of 1864 he started west again, this time in company
with Howell, Perl and Frank Sperry, Orra and Geo. Bigelow, Ira
Sheldon, Fred Schlegmilch and Wm. Loopold. They took ox teams
and carried, as a part of their cargo, eggs bought at three cents a
dozen and afterwards sold at seventy-five. The party joined the
Bozeman train of 125 wagons and continued with it to Virginia City,
Montana. The next train following them, a few days later, had
twelve horses and four men killed a few days before reaching destina-
tion and Bozeman and his party were wiped out by Blackfeet on the
return trip.
  Mr. Whitney returned to Alden in December 1865 and on April 15,
1866, was united in marriage to Miss Adaline, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
M. J. Davis, who became residents of Alden in October 1857. The
Davis family came from Michigan and settled first in Blemond in the
spring of 1857. All the children, except the youngest daughter,
Hattie McMichaelis, were born in Michigan. Mr. and Mrs. Whitney's
first home, built by themselves, is now the north part of the Cousins'
home. Most of their married life has been spent on the farm west of
town, where their family of nine children grew to manhood and
womanhood.
  The illustration is fairly recent.

UPDATES (from Oct 1996 issue) 1) On the Windsor Co. Vermont census, and the York Co. Maine census, I have not found any whitney's yet, I've scanned the whole films. However, the films are of poor quality, and hard to decipher in some places. I'm going to go through them again, and spend extra time trying to make out some of the names,..Lisa 2) To Jerry Forman, 1508 Westview Dr., Berkeley, CA. 94705-1657; As of this time I have sent out 39 letters of inquiry to Whitney's and Forman's in the Ithaca, Buffalo area, in relation to finding living descendants of your ancestors, and so far, I received only 4 replies. I mailed out 39 postal cards for each person to send me a brief reply, and as said, 4 cards have been returned out of 39. I also received 6 of the 39 letters back that I had sent out, with the reason marked nof non-deliv- ery. Some of them have forwarding addresses on the front which I haven't persued as of this date. I am enclosing the returned cards and letter-envelopes in with your copy of the newsletter, so that you may persue any of these as you see fit. I am now in the process of looking for possible connections to your line in the other areas/states that you mentioned...Lisa 3) For Kenneth L. Whitney; I have not found anything yet on Myra Whitney Reed, but I will continue to look - on this problem, and will let you know again, in April's issue...Lisa 4) To JoAnn Schiefelbein, 8924 West 10th St., Wichita, KS., 67212: I tried to re-read the census film I have for Medway, MA. 1790, but still couldn't find anything that was different,..I'm going to order the census in printed form, and that should be of help in finding anynames on the film (and other information on the film)..Lisa 5) The books on Whitney by Phoenix and by Melville have arrived, but the other book and records listed page 10 of Oct 96 issue have not come yet. I did call Salem, MA to the Higginson Book Company, about these records, in middle December, and I was told that my order should be arriving soon. I've waited a few extra days into Jan., to finish and mail January's issue of the newsletter, in hopes that I might have some information for some of you, from those records, but I'll have to just wait to check them for April's issue. It has been over 3 months since I ordered them, but I was told that "hard-bound" books take that long and sometimes longer..Lisa 6) To R. W. Dorsey, 5925 W. 78th St., Prairie Village, KS., 66208: I said I'd have the records "sorted out" by January's issue,...but I was wrong! It takes a lot longer to do than I thought! So in April's issue, I will print everything I have in my files on any Lydia Whitney, and can then see better if some of it fits into your lines. (It takes me longer in checking records, as I do all my records by my hand, and do not have a computer to help sort them out)...Lisa 7) To Frances Molsberry, 7921 Waterfalls Ave., Las Vegas, NV., 89128: The book on the ancestry of John Whitney has arrive to me,..it is the ancestry of the John Whitney of Watertown, MA., there are no Levi's listed in the index. I know this isn't your John, and am just clarifying "no Levi[s" in there,..You mentioned "so little information on the Levi sons",..In April's issue, I will print every bit of information I have on any "Levi" for you, and hopefully it will help you fill in empty spaces on your lines, or will solve the "mystery" on it for you...Lisa 8) Page 20, Oct '96 issue of this newsletter; I mentioned placing an ad in the Genealogical Helper, listing the names Castle, cleveland, Everton, Fairbanks, Forman, Jeffries, Poor, Prout(y); in efforts to try to reach other researchers for you all, on these lines. Not one response came to me! If any do come in, I'll let you know...Lisa *********************************************************************************** A CHRISTMAS GIFT TO ALL MY SUBSCRIBERS !! I send all my best wisheds for a good new year to everyone! And as my "gift" to you, I am adding two extra issues to one year-subscribers, and one extra issue to other subscribers as of Dec 1, 1996...Lisa (15)

ANCESTRY OF JOHN WHITNEY: (From the book, by Henry Melville): Sir Robert Whitney _____________________________________________________________________________ | | | Sir James Eustace Whitney Robert Whitney Esquire Esquire | | Sir Robert Whitney Thomas Whitney of Whitney; knighted of Westminster, by James 1, in 1617 Gentleman | | Sir Thomas Whitney John Whitney of Whitney; nominated of Watertown, Knight of the Royal Puritan Emigrant Oak by Charles 11 Descendants of John Whitney of Watertown, MA. include: (but are not all of them): 1) Revolution hero Josiah Whitney, of Harvard, MA. 2) Eli Whitney, inventor of the cotton gin. 3) Josiah Dwight Whitney, geologist/author. 4) William Dwight Whitney, philologist. 5) James Scollay Whitney and his distinguished sons Henry Melville Whitney, of Boston, and William Collins Whitney, of NY. The book on the ancestry of John Whitney says that Whitneys of today can claim the blood of familiar names in English history; such as by the marriage of Robert Whitney about 1470 to Constance, the daughter of Baron Audley and granddaughter of the Earl of Kent; and of another Robert about 1540, his marriage to Sybil, the daughter of Sir James Basker- ville., who connect to the Saxon Kings Alfred the Great and Edmund Ironside; the Norman William the Conqueror and Henry 1; the Plantagenets - Henry 11, John, Henry 111, and Edward 1; also members of the royal houses of Scotland, France, and Spain, with whom the names were allied. The parish of Whitney is in the County of Hereford, England, on the extreme western bor- der adjoining Wales; and is along the river Wye. This river reportedly has had sudden and destructive rainfall, to such an extent, that the waters have "carried away" Whitney Castle, Whitney Court that succeeded it, the old church with the family monuments, the rectory, and entire churchyard have been carried away. A probable suggestion of the derivative of the name Whitney is from the Anglo-Saxon "hwit" (white) and "ey" (water). There is still today, a tract know as "Whitney Wood", that is said to be identified with the one referred to in a writ of the seventeenth year of Henry 111: "The Sheriff of Hereford was commanded to cause a good breach to be made through the woods of Erdelegh, Bromlegh, and Witteneye, so that there may be such passage between the city of Hereford and Maud's Castle". The early owners of the land, before the days of surnames, were known such as Eustace, or Baldwin, or Robert of Whitney; in Latin, "of" was "de", and "De Whitney" and also "De Wytteneye" were regarded as the family name. Within two or three centuries, an "h" came into the name and the "De" was dropped. The present form of whitney has been estab- lished for about four centuries. .....THE WHITNEY's OF THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY..... James Whitney is known as the head of the Whitney family in the early sixteenth century, and was sometimes improperly call "Sir" James Whitney. His pedigree is reported to be proved, and is in the College of Arms, where the original manuscript is. (continued) (16)


[p. 17]

(Whitney's of the sixteenth century, continued from previous page) James Whitney married Blanche, fourth daughter and co-heir of Simon Milbourne. She was a lady of wealth, and had a distinguished lineage, as follows: "Sir John Eynesford (Eylesford) died leaving an only child, Elizabeth who inherited his very considerable estate. Elizabeth married Sir Piers Milbourne, and had an only child named John. In 1434 John Milbourne married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Walter Devereux, and died, leaving one child, Simon. Elizabeth survived him for many years. Simon Milbourne increased his fortune by marrying an heiress, Jane, the only child of Ralph, the younger brother of Sir John Baskerville, and died leaving only daughters who inherited through both their parents. One of these daughters was Blanche, who was married James Whitney". ---------------------------------------------------- Starting below and on the next pages are (reduced) copies of the lineage.

* Dear Lisa,..Thanks for your
* reply to my letter. Regarding
* the WHITNEY surname, I have
* the following information, and I'd
* be interested in corresponding
* with anyone who has an interest
* in these two names because they
* are connected to the REAM family:
* 
*   1) Neil Otis WHITNEY, married
*   Nellie Mildred REAM (born June
*   1895), 25 June 1917, Clackamas
*   Co.,Oregon.
* 
*   2) Lauretta R. WHITNEY, (born
*   before 1942, married Teddy
*   (Theodore ?) G. REAMS, (born
*   before 1938), before 1958.
* 
* Thanks again, and with REAM
* family regards,..Grey E. Smith,
* P.O. Box 6452, Aloha, ORE 97007
***********************************
* I want the newsletter to be one
* that keeps family events up to
* date, so if you've had a death,
* marriage, etc, please let me
* know so it can be printed!..Lisa
***********************************
*   NOTE FROM LISA
* I still have not come onto anyone
* named Lovet, in researching of
* the Whitney lines. If there are
* any "Lovet's" in the records I
* should be getting soon, then I'll
* print anything they have on the
* name! I will continue to search
* any S.C. records, (and others),
* for Lovet WHITNEY. He has to be
* there somewhere!...Lisa

******************************************************************************************** Dear Lisa,..Thank you for your reply to my letter in your last Whitney newsletter. On the subject of Benjamin WHITNEY's wife's maiden name, I remain unconvinced that it was POOR. I have photocopies of two submissionss to the Mormon archive in Salt Lake City which I obtained at our local Kensington, MD Mormon Family History Library. They both list Jane's maiden name as POOR, but it is difficult to determine from the submission the source of this information. The people at the library were unable to help in deciphering the sources. Perhaps a reader may be able to decipher the references. They are: "Whitney Gen. B4F15 p 17,22,22-26 / R5A32 Vol 1, p 330, / Mass. M6A 32b, / A13 A275 p17-34" As for obtaining G. B. Sedgeley's genealogy of Micah WHITNEY, I am not sure how it can be obtained. (Title and publisher listed) We are descendants of Micah WHITNEY, Rev. soldier, through his son Ebenezer. This book traces Micah's descendants to 1943, including Ebenezer, while Pierce's genealogy stops forour branch at Ebenezer, and I have found many errors so you may wantto pass on the importance of checking all references. Thank you for your efforts in my behalf. Sincerely, Kenneth L. Whitney, 616 Piping Rock Drive, Silver Spring, Maryland 20905. KENNETH: Thank you for the information and the tip on checking references! I checked my "Pierce's" but didn't make any connections with the above sources...Lisa (20)
