From: Paynevj -at- aol.com Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Joseph Whitney/Ephraim Whitney of Tuscarawas Co., OH Date: Sun, 25 Feb 2001 21:16:22 EST Dear Whitney Researchers: My ancestor Joseph WHITNEY was born 8 Sept 1829 in Ohio but I have not established who his parents were. In the 1850 Ohio Census, Tuscarawas Co., there is a Joseph WHITNEY, age 20, living with the family of Ephraim WHITNEY, age 43, born in Maine. I believe this to be (my) Joseph WHITNEY and that he could be the son of Ephraim WHITNEY, a descendent of John & Elinor WHITNEY. I need to confirm this connection. On 11 Sept 1853, Joseph WHITNEY married Catherine FREASE in Tuscarawas Co., OH. Catherine was born 18 Nov 1832 in Somerset Co., PA. Catherine and Joseph WHITNEY then moved to Bureau Co., IL where they had six children. Eventually, they moved to Pottawattamie Co., IA. where they lived out their lives. Their children: Mary WHITNEY b. 1854, Idella WHITNEY b. 1857, Alice WHITNEY b. 1859, Rebecca WHITNEY b. 1861, William H. WHITNEY b. 1865 Charles W. WHITNEY b. 1868. If anyone has information and/or suggestions to help verify the connection, please let me know. Thank you so much for your help. Virginia Payne paynevj -at- aol.com
