Several public trees at Ancestry.com give him a first wife Sarah Mosher, b. 1791, and by her a son, Capt. Henry Whitney, b. 24 Oct 1812, Saint John, NB, m. Mary Storey Parry. If so, Sarah Mosher must have died soon after her son's birth. No proof of this has yet been found. See Henry's page for him and his descendants.
