Charles Henry8 Whitney (Orange7, Jazaniah6, James5, [prob.] James4, Eleazer3, Thomas2, John1), son of Orange7 and Emeline (Harris) Whitney, was born 8 Mar 1843, Newport or Goshen, NH, and died 22 May 1888, Fitchburg, MA, aged 45 years 2 months 16 days, of consumption.[1]

He married, 8 May 1884, Fitchburg, MA, Helen A. Wiswell, daughter of Isaac D. and Mary (Gibson) Wiswell.[2] She was born 18 Aug 1849, Fitchburg, MA.

Charles H. was born to what would be a large family. He worked for his father Orange at the Phenix hotel. He later moved to Fitchburg, MA, and where shown on a Census list he worked as a laborer. He was buried in a cemetery in Newport, New Hampshire. The head stone states that the plot belonged to his brother Albert O. Whitney. It seems that he passed at the early age of 45. I hope to talk to an elder member of the the family for more information.

Children of Charles Henry8 and Helen A. (Wiswell) Whitney:

i. Ernest Henry9 Whitney, b. 8 Apr 1885, Fitchburg, MA;[3] m. Evi Jeffers.
