Lovet P. Whitney ([perhaps] Lovet T.), son of Sarah Whitney, and perhaps son of Lovet T. Whitney, was born circa 1808, SC, and died Mar 1897, Iron Co., MO.

He married, first, 19 Jul 1828, Butler Co., KY, Marion Hugens, born circa 1814, TN or SC.

He married, second, 16 Jul 1886, Iron Co., MO, Martha Caroline (Self) Baker, born 12 Sep 1834, AR. She was listed as Martha C. Baker on the marriage certificate. He had married firstly, about 1855, Elisha Jobe Baker.

He was a farmer and a pastor, and resided in KY, IN, and MO.

He served in the Civil War in the 42nd Regiment, Indiana Infantry.[1]

Note that in 1850, the only other Whitney family (Wiley and Lucinda Whitney) in Subdivision 2 had a son named Lovet P. Whitney. This family was probably related.

Notes

He may have been named after Sir Edward Lovett Pearce (1699-1733), a prominent Irish architect.

There is a difference of opinion with regard to the identification of his son John. Several on-line family trees at Ancestry.com suggest that he was identical to John Whitney (c1833-1861), m. 17 Apr 1851, Butler Co., KY, Catherine Jane Sharer.
