From: "sheila peel" <sapeel -at-> Subject: Re: [WHITNEY-L] Re:(Whitney) Sister Islands Date: Thu, 10 Jun 1999 19:42:31 -0400 Larry, Hi I live here in Niagara Falls and I will do some research to find out that info for you. I know that there were quite a few Whitneys in the area. There is a Whitney Ave.. and there is also a Whitney Mansion located very near the falls on Buffalo Avenue. A person told me that one Whitney of prominence here was a Solon Whitney. I haven't had a chance to look him up in the database yet though. I'll get back to you soon.
