Family:Whitney, John (1772-1802)
He married, 4 Feb 1796, Westminster, MA, Susanna Smith. She probably was the Susanna Whitney who married [secondly], 6 Feb 1805, Chester, VT, Timothy Olcott (1770-1844), both of Chester, as his first wife. If so, she died 7 Aug 1810, Chester, VT, leaving a son Sidney Smith Olcott, born about 1806, Chester, VT.
Child of John7 and Susanna (Smith) Whitney:
i. Benjamin8 Whitney, b. 17 Sep 1796, Westminster, MA; m. Mehitable Whitcomb.
- Neither John nor Susanna has been found in any census record. Possibly one or both had died by 1800, explaining the lack of further children.
