From: "" <manicmood -at-> Subject: Pennsylvania WHITNEY'S Date: Tue, 02 Sep 1997 23:57:28 -0400 As a silent member of the "WHITNEY List" for some time now, I have been secretly hoping to one day read that "magical post" which would randomly link me to another person researching my line or provide me with some other illusive key to get me unstuck. Unfortunately, neither has yet occurred. So, rather than continue leaping from site to site, passively reading assorted lists and plucking through endless databases, I have decided to stick my novice neck out and seek the wisdom of the "WHITNEY Learned Ones". Admittedly, my current knowledge is limited, but I come before the high council with the following: My gg-grandfather, Orson WHITNEY, b. (1860's?) (Presumably) Greenfield Township, Erie County, PA d. (?) (Presumably) Greenfield Township, Erie County, PA married Elsie GRAHAM, b. (?) d. (?). Known children: Arthur WHITNEY, b. Feb 1892 Greenfield Township, Erie County, PA d. May 1964. Arthur WHITNEY married Bertha (Mc)CLEARY, b. April 24, 1890 d. March 1976. Known children: Ruby Elsie WHITNEY, b. May 9, 1910, Luella WHITNEY, Jeanette WHITNEY. Additionally, information from a free, online surname search of World Family Tree Volume 3, Tree #: 2472 listed Orson WHITNEY's father as Aaron Parker WHITNEY, b. Oct 2, 1815 in Pepperell, MA and his mother as Phyrilla (Whew, what a name!) DURKEE, b. March 3, 1820. To date, I have not been able to conclusively verify any of this. As a very humble neophyte, I would truly appreciate any information on the above! Forever searching, Rebecca L. Taccone
