From: "J. Michael Poston" <poston -at-> Subject: Re: Wife of Jabez Whitney Date: Mon, 28 Sep 1998 08:13:55 -0400 Jabez Whitney married Abigail Milk Wheeler (Milk is her middle name, not a maiden name) in Chesterville, Maine in 1804. They moved from Maine to Athens County, Ohio in about 1816 and settled in that portion that later (1820) became Meigs County. In 1836, they moved to Adams County, Illinois, where Jabez died in late 1839 or early 1840 (probate was begun in February, 1840). Their children were: i.Joseph ii.Lydia iii.Thankful iv.Lucinda v.Mary vi.Ann vii.John viii.Ebsey [Ebenezer?] ix.Miranda [or Mirarella] Lydia married Phineas Castle in Meigs County, Ohio Ann married Thomas Peart in (I believe) Adams County, Illinois Jabez was listed as being "of N. Yarmouth" at his wedding and the intention to marry was also published in North Yarmouth. Other than that, little is known of Jabez. Abigail is the daughter of John Wheeler and Mollie Ingraham and much is known of the Ingraham line.
