From: "Jeanne Muse" <jwmuse -at- compuserve.com> Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Will of Samuel Whitney (1719-1782) Date: Mon, 13 Nov 2000 10:54:29 -0500 Dear WRG: In my attempts to unearth information on Abigail (Fletcher) Whitney, I think it might be valuable to view the will of her husband, Samuel Whitney (1719-1782). Rather than duplicate efforts, has anyone made a copy of it from the LDS film? ... or made an extract of it? If so, can it be sent via email to me? I can identify all of the persons who made "receipt" of the Inventory in 1784 except JOB WHITCOMB and HANNAH WHITCOMB. Who were they? I saw the Job Whitcomb (1730-1810) who married an Abigail Whitney as his 2nd wife. However, she is given as the daug. of Zechariah and Sarah (Boynton) Whitney. I could not find another Job Whitcomb who might fit in these families anywhere. The family record of Samuel and Abigail does not include a Hannah. Is it possible there was yet another child, not recorded? I lack marriage information on these daughters of Samuel and Abigail Whitney: Abigail - b. 17 Aug 1742 Achsa - b. 30 Sep 1750; died in her 22nd year [Westminster VRs] Susanah - b. 9 Feb 1767; died young. [Pierce p72] The LDS web site contained only one possible Abigail Fletcher who would have been born around the right time - dau. of John Fletcher and Mrs. Fletcher, b. in Concord 2 July 1720. Any help would be appreciated. Jeanne
