William Wallace8 Whitney (Jacob7, Ezra6, Ezra5, John4, Isaiah3, Thomas2, John1), son of Jacob7 and Tressa (Gillett) Whitney, was born 28 May 1841, Burns, NY, and died after 1910, Canaseraga, NY.

He married, about 1862, NY, Mary Eliza [?Bacon/Cleaveland/Hall?] (no proof yet). She was born May 1840, NY, and died after 1910. One source says she was daughter of Benjamin and Mary (-----) Cleaveland.

My mother had given me the name of Eliza Bacon as the wife of William but as of now I have not been able to prove her parentage. In the 1865 NY State Census she is listed as Mary E. and gave Steuben, NY, as birth county. In the 1880 Census she says her father was born in MA and mother in NY.

Apparently this is a duplicate enumeration of Eliza, living with her son in one, and her daughter in the other.
