Peletiah7 Whitney (Moses6, Ephraim5, Moses4, Moses3, Richard2, John1), son of Moses6 and Sarah (Geary) Whitney, was born say 1778, and died 25 Apr 1862, Madrid, ME.

He married, 16 Nov 1811, Avon, ME, Hannah Blethen, daughter of Increase and Isabella5 (Whitney) Blethen. She was born 8 Jul 1794, Phillips, ME, and died 2 Nov 1861, Madrid, ME. They were very distant cousins, descended from different sons of John1 and Elinor (-----) Whitney.

Children of Peletiah7 and Hannah (Blethen) Whitney:

i. Violetta Eastman8 Whitney, b. 5 Jul 1813, Madrid, ME; d. 24 Oct 1859, Madrid, ME; m. before 1834, Miller Hinkley.
ii. Harriet R. Whitney, b. 31 May 1816, ME; d. 18 Aug 1884, Madrid, ME; m. 10 Nov 1834, Phillips, ME, Eben Berry.[1]

Notes

Some sources say Harriet m. 1837 Benjamin F. Whitcomb. This is contraindicated by the 1860 census record below, in which Peletiah is living with his daughter and son-in-law, after the death of his other daughter.
