Notes

There is a record of a Granville A. Whitney who married, 16 Nov 1849, Nashville, NH, Mary Ann Chaffin.[10] She was born about 23 Mar 1831, Unity, NH, daughter of Lyman and Patience (Hale) Chaffin, and died 12 Apr 1894, Boston, MA, aged 63 years 19 days, of paralysis. If this is the same person, that second marriage would have been bigamous. If that had been discovered, it would explain why Mary Ann Chaffin married secondly, 14 May 1850, Milo Smith.
