War Soldiers Date: Mon, 15 Nov 1999 14:51:14 -0500 Another descendant of Henry Whitney is connected from: Virgil D. White, Genealogical Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Files, Volume III: N-Z (Waynesboro, Tennessee: The National Historical Publishing Company, 1992), p. 3812. David, CT Line, Nancy, W3636, BLW #38341-160-55, sol was b 25 Aug 1761 at Norwalk in Fairfield Co CT & he lived there until age of 27 then moved to Walton in Delaware Co NY where he lived when he appl 17 Jun 1834, he had srv with a Lt Ebenezer Whitney but no kinship was given, sol m Nancy Raymond 12 May 1796 at Norwalk CT, sol d 7 Sep 1834, wid appl 6 Apr 1854 in Orleans Co NY but she was a res of Taylor in Cortland Co NY & she appl for BLW in 1846 in Cortland Co NT aged 80 yrs, a son Moses R. Whitney made aff'dt 3 Jan 1854 in NY City NY & stated he was 1 of the surviving children of dec'd He was David Hyatt-5 Whitney (David-4, Joseph-3, John-2, Henry-1) son of David and Elizabeth (HYATT) Whitney, b. 25 Aug 1761 Norwalk, Fairfield County, Connecticut (Hall's Norwalk Records p232), d. 7 Sep 1834 Walton, NY. He married Nancy RAYMOND 12 May 1796 in Norwalk, Ct and they had 11 children. D.A.R. Records: 'David Hyatt Whitney, (1761-1834), served as a private in the Connecticut Line under Col. Stephen St. John. He was born at Norwalk, Conn., and died at Walton, N.Y., where he was a pensioner.' More than likely the Ebenezer referred to in David's Pension record was his brother (1742-1808), whose record we find next: Ebenezer, CT Line, Ruth, W22609, sol was b 8 Aug 1742 & he m Ruth Raymond 19 Dec 1771 & she was b 14 Aug 1756 & their children were; Betsey b 1 Feb 1773, Asa b 12 May 1774 & d 19 Sep 1774, Abbe b 8 Jun 1775, Asa 2nd b 17 Aug 1776, Lucretia b 19 Jul 1778, Clarissa b 21 Feb 1780 & d 22 May 1781, Aaron b 17 Oct 1781, Ebenezer b 19 Nov 1783, Lucretia 2nd b 27 Jun 1786, Roxana b 26 oct 1789, Maria b 27 Jun 1792, George Washington b 26 Jul 1794 & Hannah Hoyt Whitney b 4 Feb 1796, sol d 12 Apr 1808 his wid appl 8 Nov 1836 at New Canaan in Fairfield Co CT Comparing the above record with the data in our Henry Whitney database, I find only one difference: The birth date of his wife, Ruth RAYMOND, Phoenix's "Whitneys of Connecticut" is 15 Nov 1757, while Hall's Norwalk records p287 gives the year as 1756.
