They had 6 children. Per our D.A.R. extracts (Vol 33 p174): Lt. Salmon Whitney 'enlisted in the first call for troops and, 1780, was lieutenant under Capt. William Scott. He was born in Harvard, Mass., where he died, and in the cemetery is an interesting memorial tablet.' My records had an approximate marriage date until now. The above pension record tells us where to look for their marriage -- which is confirmed in Templeton, Mass. vital records as 22 Apr 1784.
