William A. Whitney ([prob.] Dwight8, Chauncey B.7, James6, Cornelius5, Matthias4, Cornelius3, Joshua2, John1), probably son of Dwight8 and Elmira/Emira Leora (Webster) Whitney, was born 1 Sep 1857, IA, and died 29 Feb 1932, Wapello Co., IA. He was buried in Memorial Lawn Cemetery, Ottumwa, IA.[1]

He married, 24 Dec 1885, Mt. Pleasant, IA, Nannie L. Johnson, daughter of William T. and Sarah E. (Van Tress) Johnson.[2] She was born 1867, IA, and died 1951. She was buried in Memorial Lawn Cemetery, Ottumwa, IA.[3]

Children of William A. and Nannie L. (Johnson) Whitney:

i. Theodore Van Whitney, b. 26 Sep 1887, Mt. Pleasant, IA; d. 4 Apr 1934, Wapello, IA, aged 47 years, of car accident; bur. Memorial Lawn Cemetery, Ottumwa, IA;[4] m. 1 Jul 1912, Ottumwa, IA, Eva Frances Gibbons, b. Sep 1890, d. 1939, bur. Memorial Lawn Cemetery, Ottumwa, IA.[5]

Notes

It seems probable that Emma L. (Webster) Whitney was divorced from Dwight Whitney, and married secondly, before 1870, Thomas Armkin, as in the 1870 census below. It also seems probable that George and L. Webster in that record were her parents.
