Notes

It seems extremely likely that he was the "Wm. A. Whitney" who died 27 Nov 1859, Leominster, MA, aged 50 years 1 month, of dropsy, farmer, born in Charlestown, son of Joseph and Betsey.[16] If so, his parents would seem to be the Joseph and Betsey (Lane) Whitney who were married 17 May 1807, Boston, MA.[17] This is partly because William's oldest son was given the middle name Lane.
