From: janwhit -at- (Jan Whitaker) Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Jabez Whitney Date: Fri, 8 Jun 2001 12:12:42 -0500 Dear WRG's, While researching deeds for my Samuel Whitney in Kennebec Co. ME Registry, I came across a court action against JABEZ WHITNEY of Chester dated 22 Dec 1803..this is earlier than his marriage and could help you trace his origins! I believe Michael Poston is one descendent and I'm sorry that I forget who else was tracing him, but I copied the two pages and will snail mail them to anyone who wants them... I also copied a deed dated 23 Oct 1827 in which Samuel Whitney (wife Mary) of Wilton ME gave a "Quit Claim"to Abner Fletcher. It appears that Abner may have been an in-law who gave the land to Samuel, he has now deserted it and is giving it back...Anyone want this copy, I will be happy to send by snail mail. I want to share with all, that I have recently begun searching deeds and wills as well as old town records and I have to say it is rewarding and productive, at least in MA and ME. There is alot to learn from these sources, so take the trouble to go to these sites if you can. Cheers, Jan
