From: Katehogen -at- cs.com Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Re: Woods - Whitney Connections Date: Fri, 23 Mar 2001 20:59:03 EST Can someone help me with Eunice Whitney of Cambridge m John Woods as his 2nd wife in 1826. She died in 1827 at age 40. Was she perhaps a widow of a Whitney? Also I'm trying to pen down the name of John's first wife which could be any of the following: Bisty/Betsey Potts/Peat/Pitts/Petts/Peet to help in researching her ancestry and mine as well. The following is what I've gathered on John Woods and his direct family. Descendants of Samuel Woods Generation No. 1 1. SAMUEL3 WOODS (SAMUEL2, SAMUEL1)1,2 was born June 19, 1722, in Chelmsford, Middlesex, Massachusetts2, and died November 08, 1808, in Princeton2. He married (1) TABITHA EVELETH3,4 September 14, 1751, in Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts4, daughter of JOHN EVELETH and HANNAH HAYNES. She was born April 04, 1731, in Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts4, and died October 20, 1770, in Princeton, MA4. He married (2) ABIGAIL WHITNEY4 1772, widow of Israel Underwood; daughter of SOLOMON WHITNEY and MARTHA FLETCHER. She was baptized May 02, 1741, and died July 31, 1826. In 1761 Mr. Woods moved from Rutland to Princeton, Massachusetts, and there taught the first public school established in that town. He took an active part in all the interests of the time, and in the years preceding the American revolution and during its continuance was a member of the committee of correspondence, and with others signed and published a renunciation of allegiance to the British crown.
