Elliot7 Whitney (Isaac6, Abner5, Jonas4, Eleazer3, Thomas2, John1), son of Isaac6 and Polly (Fairbanks) Whitney, was born 9 Mar 1808, Springfield, VT,[1] and died after 1843.

He married firstly, 7 Jun 1834, Elmore, VT, Mary Ann Tucker.[2]

Marriage intentions were published 23 Dec 1843, Brookline, MA, for him and his second wife Sally Shepard "of Brookline",[3] "of Pittsfield". He married secondly, 21 Feb 1844, Boston, MA, Sally Shepard.[4] She was born about 1804, Marblehead, MA, and died 8 Jun 1850, Lynn, MA, aged 46, of disease of the heart.[5]

Since his wife is called "wife of Elliott Whitney" and not "widow of Elliott Whitney" at her death, presumably he died after 8 Jun 1850. Nevertheless, he is not found in the 1850 census, unless he is the one with wife Roxanna in WI.

Children of Elliot7 and Mary Ann (Tucker) Whitney, probably incomplete:

i. Mary E.8 Whitney, b. -----; m. 16 Sep 1860, Walden, VT, Newell H. Adams, son of Abial A. and Irena (-----) Adams.[6]

Children of Elliot7 and Sally (Shepard) Whitney, if any, unknown.
