Alfred7 Whitney (William6, Elijah5, John4, William3, Joshua2, John1), son of William6 and Prudence (Brown) Whitney, was born 6 Mar 1821, Norwich, VT, and died 14 Jan 1890, Boston, MA, aged 69 years 10 months 8 days, of apoplexia.[1]

He married, 14 Jun 1850, or 23 Jun 1850, Boston, MA, Edna N. Haskell,[2] daughter of Joshua and Sarah (Bray) Haskell. She was born 6 Mar 1831, Deer Isle, ME, and died 15 Jan 1905, Springfield, MA, aged 74 years 10 months, of pneumonia.[3]

Alfred Whitney resided in Boston nearly all his life. He was a member of the firm of Whitney & Babcock, expressmen, for over thirty years. He retired from business some thirteen years before his death. The death of his son Lewis was a deep affliction to him, and he survived his death only seven months. He went to the cellar to prepare his furnace fires and fell in a paralytic shock, living only forty hours afterward. He was a steady, quiet, honest man, respected by all. He is buried at Upham's Corner, Dorchester, MA. He resided Boston, MA.
