Mark8 Whitney ([poss.] Samuel7, Aaron6, Benjamin5, Joshua4, Cornelius3, Joshua2, John1), son or grandson of Samuel7 and Lucretia Ann "Lucy" (Lewis) Whitney, was born Mar 1871, IA, and died after 1945, said 1951, SD.

He married, about 1903, Katie E. Root, daughter of Willis E. and Sarah Adeline (Percy) Root. She was born 15 May 1881, Hawarden, IA, and died 25 May 1965, SD.

Children of Mark8 and Katie E. (Root) Whitney:

i. Marion Earl9 Whitney, b. 17 Jun 1906, Woonsocket, SD; d. Feb 1982, Woonsocket, SD; m. 8 Jun 1932, Clifton, SD, Helen K. Alexander.
ii. Lauretta Mae Whitney, b. 24 Oct 1909, Woonsocket, SD; d. Jan 1979, Huron, SD; m. 7 Feb 1934, Beadle, SD, Clarence H. Peterson.

Notes

Only the 1930 census calls him Mark, while all other records report just his first initial.

In two records he is called a grandson of Samuel7 Whitney, not a son. This casts doubt on his parentage. If a grandson, he may have been an illegitimate son of one of Samuel's older daughters.
