W. H. H. Whitney, the fourth child of Henry S., and Susan (Whiting) Whitney, was born in Manchester, NH, 11 Apr 1841. While never very robust as a child, he was persevering and industrious and obtained a good education in the public schools of the city, becoming a bookkeeper for the Manchester Iron Works after graduating. He held this position until Apr 1864, when he decided to see Washington, DC, the city toward which all eyes, both north and south, were turned. He secured a position in the U. S. Treasury, later became chief of a division, and held that position seventeen years. In Jun 1885, he lost the position, as the party in power had changed. The failing health of his father recalled him to Manchester the following month, and there he has since resided, being a bookkeeper for the Amoskeag corporation; resided Manchester, NH.
