From: "Jeanne Muse" <jwmuse -at- compuserve.com> Subject: Re: [WHITNEY-L] Daniel Whitney - Rev. War Soldier Date: Tue, 16 Nov 1999 06:08:59 -0500 Dear WRG: John J. Whitney has made some very good points. There is no substantial proof that the Nathan who provided an affidavit in 1839 to the marriage of Daniel-6 Whitney and Louisa Stubbs was Daniel's brother. (It seems an obvious choice until we look at where Nathan-6 was living at the time.) Louisa (Stubbs) Whitney was obviously having trouble proving that she deserved her deceased husband's pension and needed affidavits from witnesses in order to collect the funds. Unless a written affidavit was sent by post (was the mail being delivered by that time?), Nathan-6 would have had to make a long trip from Virginia to Hampden, Maine to aid his mother. The pieces of this puzzle have yet to be found. Anyone having any information about persons by the name of Nathan Whitney should contact John J. Whitney to help him with his search. Thanks for covering my back, John!
