From: Mossyrose -at- aol.com Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Whitney Searching: Date: Sat, 20 Jan 2001 11:24:07 EST I am searching my Whitney family and I hope this is the right address: My beginning information begins with: Isaac Whitney, born in Canada to a father also named Isaac Whitney. The first Isaac Whitney I have that I know of lived in Connecticut at the time of the Revolutionary war. He was an English sympathizer so he moved to Canada at least for the duration of the war. He fathered four sons: Isaac, Levi, Abraham and Nelson. His son Isaac lived in Fairfiled, Vt a town near Sheldon, Vt. He was a farmer and blacksmith. Was a black smith for the Union Army during the Civil War. He married Julia Anne Moore, a widow with two daughters. Marcellas and Sarah. They then had three children: Levi, Flora and Lucy. All born in Vermont. Levi moved to Clearwater, Minn. Levi married Julia Anne Shirley. They too lived in Clearwater. Levi and Julia Anne Shirley had two children. Pearl Flora and Ward. Julia died when Pearl was seven years old. Her father was James Shirley. Lucy married a George Humphrey from England, farmed near Clearwater. Suppose to be info on them in the Wright County records in Minn. Flora married an Englishman too named Ashley Cummins. Any connection to this family would be most welcome.
