Benajah6 Whitney (Benjamin5, John4, Henry3, John2, Henry1), son of Benjamin5 and Ann Mercy (Harris) Whitney, was born about 1793, Otsego Co., NY, and died 22 Jan 1835, Parish, NY, aged 42 years. He was buried in Colosse Cemetery, Parish, NY.

He perhaps married firstly, Jane Carter.

He married perhaps secondly, say 1822, Rosina David, daughter of Jean Pierre David. His wife Rosina/Rosine/Rosean/Rossie/Rosana was born about Jan 1799, Switzerland, and died 20 May 1875, La Crescent, MN.
