iii. (daughter) Whitney, b. 1804-1810. This is perhaps Martha 'Patsy' Whitney, b. ca. 1805, Southampton Co., VA, d. Jun 1838, Southampton Co., VA. She m. 23 Feb 1826, Southampton Co., VA, Richard Corbitt. She was a member of Black Creek Baptist Church. The church records show that she died 1838, about the same time as her husband Richard Corbitt.

Census

Notes

John died about 1844. I have no positive proof that Martha was the daughter of John and Ann, but this is the only place she could be placed in the Whitney family and the dates are right. In the 1810 census of Southampton, John and Ann had one daughter 0-9. I see two males in Southampton who don't fit anywhere else - Alexander and Selaney. They may also belong to this family. {jcf}
