Notes

Some sources include a son Vespasian Ward Whitney, or just Ward Whitney, but he was not a child. Instead, he was a son of Abel6 Whitney (1752-1807), as proved by the probate records of Abel's son Timothy, in 1873. Others include a son Charles, b. ca. 1811, who does not belong in this family.
