Eugene Lamont9 'Gene' Whitney (Melvin8, Erastus7, Ezra6, Ezra5, John4, Isaiah3, Thomas2, John1), son of Melvin8 and Ann Eliza (Hooker) Whitney, was born 12 Sep 1854, NY, probably Canaseraga, Allegany Co, NY, and died 1 May 1911, Berkley, CA.

He married, about 1879, probably in Bulls City (now Alton), Osborne County, KS, Bessie P. -----. She was born Feb 1862, IA, and died after 1930, probably Boise, Ada County, ID.
