Family:Whitney, John (1800-a1870)
John7 Whitney (Zachariah6, Zachariah5, Zachariah4, Ebenezer3, Richard2, John1), son of Zachariah6 and Elizabeth (Seward) Whitney, was born 19 Nov 1800, Kortright, NY, and died 12 Feb 1872, Starlight, PA.
He married circa 1830, Sabrina Cook. She was born circa 1808, NY, and died after 1880.
Children of John7 and Sabrina (Cook) Whitney:
i. George8 Whitney, b. ca. 1832, NY. Supposedly had three wives, but no known descendants. ii. Roderic Whitney, b. ca. 1837, NY. Supposedly killed in the Civil War. May have had a son named Rodney Whitney who moved to Canada and had two living sons. iii. John O. Whitney, b. ca. 1839, NY.
John married Sabrina Cook. Their sons were George, born 1832, 3 wives but no known descendants; Roderick, born 1837 and killed in the civil war. He did have one son, Rodney, who moved to Canada. I have been told he had 2 living sons, and I am hoping to hear from Canada about them; and John, born 1840. He married Henrietta (Harriet) Dix of Wayne Co., PA. They had 4 known sons, but I have not followed their descendants. I am not in touch with any of the Whitneys. Rodney, the orphan, became a ward of my grandfather's,
