                                               LETTERS TO LISA

1) Dear Lisa,...Thank your for publishing a great quarterly on Whitney's! My great grand-
   mother was a Whitney. I joined DAR on James Rex Whitney line, he was in Rev. I have the
   Whitney book by Pierce, The Descendants of John Whitney, who came from London, England
   to Watertown, Mass. in 1635, published in 1895.

   Page 390, #3168, Charles Wesley Whitney, (John M., James R., Caleb, William, Joshua and
   John). Charles Wesley Whitney is father of Maggie Whitney, who married James Edwin Blank-
   enship, 21 March 1878. They are my great-grandparents. I will, at a later date, send the
   full information, birth, death, and marriage that I have, if you would like.

   I would love to have a photo or xerox coy of real tombstone of John and Elinor Whitney.
   Do you have any ideas? Also a picture of the ship that they traveled to America on?

   I'm not real organized due to storm roof damage which caused much of my research to get
   wet and damp, and I'm trying to put it all in loose-leaf binders, but I'm always glad to
   share what I have.

   Keep up the good work, I appreciate you very much! Sincerely, Jean Moore, 1723 W. Virgin-
   ia Ave., Chickasa, OK. 73018-5328
   JEAN: I've located a place that has ship photos, etc., but as of this
   date I dont' have a picture (yet), but if I am successful at finding
   one through the above reference, then I'll certainly let you (and all
   my readers know)...Lisa
2) Dear Lisa,..Words cannot describe how grateful I am over the extensive
   work you did for me on my WHITNEY research. I will surely follow through
   on the remainder of the names you sent. Also, I appreciate learning of the
   web site where many of these names came from. I've since really been
   "going to town" pulling all sorts of other family names down for research.
   This opens up a whole new world! Thank goodness for the internet. I'd
   like to pay you for your expenses if you'll let me know the cost...
   Sincerely, Jerry Forman, 1508 West View Dr., Berkeley, CA 94705
   JERRY: Thank you(!!) very much for your nice words! It always "makes my
   day" when I get nice letters about how people like, and benefit from,
   my newsletters! I want my newsletters to help people,and I am so happy
   when it does!

            .........and as for your offer to pay.....

       THANK YOU!, for the offer, I do appreciate it! However, the
       subscribers to my newsletters OWE ME NOTHING for the research
       or expenses I put out to issue the publication.

       I do the research on my own time, and because I want my news-
       letters to HELP the people who pay for it!

       All I ask  in "payment" is for readers to share their charts,
       FGS's and histories, with all of our Whitney "family"...And
       to send me everything they can, so that I can print it to
       share, and to help us all find our ancestry!

   and for Families Anywhere - Everywhere. I appreciate all your work!

   Our Brady Co. Genealogy Society has free queries if anyone wants to
   send one, - they can address it to me:

   in the censuses! I need items like that! They help! They are listed in

    NOTE FROM LISA: I want, need, and welcome letters on what you folks are
    needing, or wanting. I have received some very nice letters from those
    of you who have found help through the pages of this publication, but I
    am not getting enough letters or requests on what you would like to have
    me check out at the state archives, and other places where I go to do my
    research. And I feel at times like I am "getting nowhere" in providing a
    helpful newsletter to you all. If it doesn't matter where I reserach,
    or you simply want just anything/everything I can find on Whitney, then
    that would help me to, if you'd let me know that! There are so many books
    and records to search that I hardly know where to start, and there's not
    enough hours in a lifetime, to go through them all. Although I can see
    the areas you list for your ancestors, it doesn't mean that the area is
    your research priority, because you've usually gotten that area checked
    already...I have printed in the last issues, that I would check out some
    areas, but I haven't received responses of "yes", or "no", so I feel I
    can give you a better newsletter if I just find what I can, and print it
    ....So, with this newsletter issue, I am changing the responses and will
    respond with information that I have already in my files, unless someone
    tells me they'd like a certain area, state, county, etc. checked. I feel
    this will give you more than just notes of not finding things,..(updates).
    If you don't feel this will help you all more, please do let me know! Lisa

                         MINNESOTA  research, by Lisa

[photocopy of an atlas page for Lyon Co., Minnesota]

Above is Lyon County, Minnesota. Note where Lake Marshall Township is, and that the
city of Marshall is on the North border just inside Lake Marshall Twp.
An enlarged area of the city of Marshall is on the next page, and shows
where a C. C. WHITNEY lived.  However, in the history of Lyon County, it
referred to a C. H. WHITNEY. I'll give the information on the C. H. Whitney
on the next page, and hopefully time, (or possibly a reader!) will be able
to clarify the difference in the initials and the information on the map.
                                             (continued next page)

      MINNESOTA  research, by Lisa, continued)

[photocopy of cadastral map of region of Marshall, Lyons Co., Minnesota.
 C. C. WHITNEY shown as owner of 80 acres, the east 1/2 of the southeast
 1/4 of Section 4, Lake Marshall Township, on the eastern edge of the
 town of Marshall.]

ABOVE: Marshall, Minnesota (Lyon County, Lake Marshall Township 111 North,
      Range 41 West)

The first permanent settlers arrived 1869 and took up claims. Among them was
C.H. WHITNEY, who, with others, had set out from Olmstead Co., Minnesota, on
the 1st day of May 1869. C. H. Whitney followed an Indian trail by the river,
to a point the Indians called "The Big Bend". This became the site where the
city of Marshall is.
Mr. Whitney's claim was just East of what is known as the Third Street Bridge
in Marshall. (Note where it says C.C. Whitney on map above). The claims were
filed at the land office 18 June 1869.
Mr. Whitney spent some time in Wisconsin the winter of 1869-1870, and return-
ed to Lyon County, MN on 1 June 1870. He has staked his claim on the South-
east corner of Section four.
Mr. Whitney secured the establishment of a post office situated on his claim,
17 October 1870.
In 1872, surveyors arrived to select a route for a railroad, and through the
efforts of C. H. Whitney, the station was built at Marsahll, MN.
NOTE: I have more on Lyon County, MN, such as other settlers who arrived with
this Whitney, and routes they took, etc. If anyone needs/wants further infor-
mation, please let me know and I'll print it for you...Lisa
I have more maps of Whitney homes places, and will put more in July issue..Lisa


[p. 7]

                   Q U E R I E S 

1) HENRY WHITNEY who lived at, and built mills at Southold, Long Island,
   in the 1640's, moved to Huntington, L.I. in 1658 and built a grist mill
   there, and had moved to Norwalk, CT by 1665, had a son John. Did he
   have any other children? Who ws his first wife (the mother of John)?
   Mary Alice Harvey, 1707 Jefferson St., Duluth, MN 55812-2030
   MARY ALICE;.....HOUSE OF GENEALOGY has the 3-volume lineage of HENRY
   WHITNEY,(listed above); and it doesn't give much more information than
   what you appear to have on the wives, etc.  It says: That Henry proba-
   bly died in the autumn of 173, but searching has failed to show any
   date, nor has anything been found to show anything of facts, on either
   of Henry's two wives, except that the second was a widow  KETCHAM, and
   that she was probably the one who survivied him.  In the previous sen-
   tence, where I wrote "two wives", it's all I've found listed so far. I
   am not aware (at this time) of any more than two.

   The information also says this Henry was born in England, about 1620,
   and that no records of him have been found prior to 8 Oct 1649 when
   he was buying land at Southold, L.I.

   On his wife listed above, (the widow Ketcham); it has these references:

      a) In an extract from court records, it mentions a SARA CECHUM, (in
         a complaint made by "Henary Whitne".

      b) "Sara Cechum" was probably the widow of Edward KETCHAM, of Strat-
         for, CT., (he died about 1655).

      c) That only fragments of Edward Ketcham's will remains, and it has
         a "Sarah" mentioned.

   As for the above-listed "complaint" made by HENRY WHITNEY, made on
   17 June 1660, to the court, it refers to it being (quote) "agaynst
   Josef WHITMOR, for steling of his daftars afections contray to her
   mothars mind and using unlafull menes to obtayne his daftars loue",..
   (Un-quote),..since Henry Whitney made the complaint, it appears there
   was a daughter, in this court record. (Huntington Court Records, page 23).

   When I re-read the above listed court record, it sometimes "appears"
   that it is in reference to Henry Whitney himself, in reference to him
   marrying Sarah Ketcham,..but I'm not sure of just what it does mean.

   In the next section of my volumes on this family, it lists "Chidren
   of Henry Whitney", and there is only a son JOHN WHITNEY listed. This
   John married 17 March 1674/75 to ELIZABETH SMITH, daughter of RICHARD
              (If you need/want the information on John and Elizabeth's
               children, please let me know, and I'll list it in the
               July newsletter. (Or if any other reader needs/wants it,
               please let me know)..Lisa

   Personally I feel there could be some discrepancies in just how old
   Henry Whitney's son John really was.  The records do point to him as
   "grown" by 1666, and bases that assumption on the following:

          "John Whitney, probably born before his father went to
          Southold by the fact that he was of full age before
          20 Jan 1665/6, is indicated by the following vote:"

          At a town meeting held 20 Jan 1665, granted unto JOHN
          WHITNEY, the son of Henry Whitney, (J)oines unto his
                                                     (continued next page)

[p. 8]

              father's home lott extending from the....Brow of the
              hill lying by the hi....weight Leading to the...2 Rodds
              ....cartpath by the sayd Falls.

   I personally leave room for possible discrepancies, in that I personally
   believe thta parents could have, and did, grant properties to their chil-
   dren, and/or other people's children (neices/nephews) that were not yet
   of grown age.  And it doesn't say specifically  that John Whitney was of
   age or grown, it only "indicates" an assumption of it being so...Lisa
   If any other readers have any other information on this particular HNERY WHITNEY
   or of any additional children other than a son JOHN WHITNEY, would you let
   Mary Alice know? And would you please send me the information so that it
   can be put in this publication for other Whitney researchers? Thanks! Lisa
2) Dear Lisa,..My great-grandmother was LURA WHITNEY, born in Iowa, who had
   brothers ans sisters I know nothing about.  Her parents were SAMUEL and
   LIZZIE T. Whitney.  She first married Lemuel OAKS, and they, and both of
   their parents all lived in South Dakota in the 1800's.  Lemuel OAKSdied,
   and she then married my great-grandfather Henry Thomas LORD. Henry had
   gone West to find and visit relatives, met Lura, came back to Michigan,
   then sent for her.  She came to Michigan with her two young boys and was
   married for the second time.

   I would live to hear from anyone with any information on my WHITNEY family.

   In 1860 this family is living in Fairfield, Walworth Co., WI.; in 1880, in
   Liberty Twp., Plymouth Co., IA, and after that, some went to South Dakota,
   and some stayed in Iowa.

   I know what happened to Lura, but what became of her parents and siblings
   after 1900? Thank you so much.

   LARAE:, Before July '97 issue of this newsletter, would you please let me
   know of what responses you have received that were positive, and what you
   still need, and I'll print whatever you still need yet. Also, I've not
   seen "Lizzie" used as a nickname for "Lucretia", did I print it correctly?
   I will be doing research on all states, so NY, WI, and Iowa information
   will be in future issues. In the meantime, I will check all the records I
   have in my files on you above listed names to see if any match up...Lisa

                                                   QUERIES (continued)

    3) I am looking for any information about James Edwin BLANKENSHIP, born
       in Boydston, VA 1830.  Married #2 wife Margaret (Maggie) WHITNEY in
       Mississippi.  Wife #1 and several children died during Civil War. I
       would like to know more about his first wife. Family talk: She was a
       cousin, HILLSMAN/HILLESMAN.  Also, he taught at VMI in 1850. I'd like
       to know who his parents were. Just the slightest information would be
       helpful and would be appreciated...Jean Moore, 1723 W. Virginia,
       Chickasa, OK. 73018-5328; (405) 224-7482
       The above query was answered through my other newsletter, due to the
       focus of it being on James Blankenship's first wife. However, I have
       also put it in the Whitney newsletter so that all my Whitney readers
       and researchers may note the connection to a Whitney...If anyone doee
       need anymore information on the above people, please let me know..I'm
       not sure if I have the above specific "Margaret" in my records, but I
       do have a number of "Margaret's", and will print them if anyone needs

   I now have the book of records on Medway, MASS, and it does list a

   BANKS...It doesn't list his lineage,..the item lists the genealogy
   of Experience; her brothers/sisters names, some dates, her parents
   names, etc,..Do you need this information on her? If so, let me know
   and I'll print it for you (since she is a Whitney by marriage).. The
   index said Jabez was located on a certain page, I read and read the
   page and couldn't find his name, so looked under the pages listed
   for the surname Fairbanks, and found his name...Lisa
