Family:Whitney, William W. (1800-1849)
He married, 15 Sep 1823, Emily Satterwhite. She died 2 Jan 1834.
It seems likely he married again, to Sarah Ann -----, who appears in the 1850 census, below. She was born about 1798, KY, and died after 1850.

Children of William W.2 and Emily (Satterwhite) Whitney:
i. Richard P.3 Whitney, b. ca. 1825, d. 26 Aug 1847. "Died on 26th - Richard P. Whitney, at age of 22 at home of father, Dr. W. W. Whitney." - Lexington Public Library's Local History Index, referencing Observer and Reporter. p. 3 col. 5, 28 Aug 1847. ii. (son) Whitney. iii. (prob.) Elizabeth O. Whitney, b. ca. 1828, KY; m. Samuel Bullock. See Notes below. iv. John W. Whitney, b. 10 Oct 1829. v. William Whitney, b. ca. 1833, KY; d. after 1880, then unmarried.
Note that if Elizabeth O. (Whitney) Bullock's age on the 1850 census is correct, then she could not have been a daughter of Thomas Whitney as he died in 1819. She was probably a granddaughter. The Sarah Ann Whitney enumerated with her family is most likely her mother, probably the wife of son William W. Whitney.
