Notes

According to Martin R. Field, "Joseph Whitney married a lady named Esther (Esther Crittenden according to my Grandfather Charles Whitney's chart). They had a son named George Washington Whitney, who was born c. 1806 in Utica, NY."

According to the book "Descendants of Thomas White of Sudbury, Massachusetts - 1638" by Ella White Ford, published 1952, Frances Hunt Whitney, born in Utica, Oneida, NY, was a daughter of Joseph and Esther Whitney (Crittenden). She married Windsor White of Templeton in that town on 10/7/1841, passing away in 1842, according to MA Town Death record for Templeton. Windsor remarried, second, to Frances' younger sister, Elizabeth Pierce Whitney, born 4/1/1821 in Utica, NY (census records suggest MA, though) Artemesia Whitney, younger than Frances, is also mentioned as a daughter of Joseph and Esther.

The 1850 Census for Templeton, Worcester, MA, and the 1860 Census for Orange, Franklin, MA, both show an Esther Whitney, b. abt. 1780, and an Artemesia, b. abt. 1819.

Records for christenings at the 1st Presbyterian Church of Utica indicate the following Whitneys baptized on 7/8/1813:

George Washington Whitney
Martha Washington Whitney -- probably m. Harvey Lacey (alt. Lacy) of Jaffrey, NH on 10/21/1828 in Hubbardston, MA (according to MA VR)
Mary Robbins Whitney
Barah Beckett Whitney (A Baruch Whitney, c. 1812 in NY, is found later in Hubbardston, MA)

And in 7/1815, Frances Hunt Whitney

Additionally, the 1817 Utica City Directory shows a Joseph Whitney.
