From: Colleen Knights <knights -at- badger.tds.net> Subject: [WHITNEY-L] 1860 Indiana Census Whitneys Date: Sun, 23 Jul 2000 23:27:30 -0500 Hello all. Is anyone familiar with the Edward Whitney who is listed in the 1860 Federal Census residing in Clay, LaGrange, IN? This, I believe, is the same Edward Whitney whose widow, Adaline, filed for a Civil War Pension in 1864. There is also a listing in the Civil War Rosters stating he (or an Edward Whitney) enlisted with the 100th Indiana Infantry 15 Aug 1862 and died at Missionary Ridge, TN on 25 November 1863, claiming residence at the time of enlistment at LaGrange, IN. I've also found, looking at the other names in the census index, an Anna Brockway, same page, and one id# (ancestry.com id#) from Edward Whitney. My Edward's grandmother was Jerusha Brockway, too much of a co-incidence to be ignored. As always, any help will be greatly appreciated. Colleen Knights
