Family:Whitney, Stillman S. (1849-1886)
Dr. Stillman S.7 Whitney (Samuel Stillman6, George5, Jason4, Mark3, Benjamin2, John1), son of Samuel Stillman6 and Sarah (Wilder) Whitney, was born 4 Aug 1849, Dedham, MA, and died 6 Nov 1886, Dedham, MA, aged 36 years 3 months, of disease of the mitral valve and rheumatism, s. p.
He married, 16 or 30 Sep 1884, Boston, MA, Mary E. Danagh, daughter of John and Elizabeth (Bevan) Danagh. She was born about 1852, Swampscott, MA.
The only son of the late Dr. Whitney and Sarah Whitney was born in Dedham, 4 Aug 1849. After graduating from the Dedham high school he spent a short time in active business, but decided to follow the profession of his father, and took up the medical profession, graduating from the "Homeopathic School of Medicine," in Boston, MA. He possessed the same intuitive faculty of grasping the cause of disease, and of the methods to be employed to restore health as his father. He settled in Allston, MA, a suburb of Boston, and established a good practice. But after three years his health failed, and he died. He resided Dedham, MA.
Stillman S.7 and Mary E. (Danagh) Whitney had no children.
