NY, ed by William Adams, pub 1893 History of the Town of Humphrey - Chapter XXXII (32) Page 744 Surnames: WHITNEY, WARNER, HOWE, HAGGERTY, MAHER Charles E. WHITNEY is the son of Joseph M. WHITNEY, of Penn Yan, N. Y., who came to Sardinia, N. Y., and in 1843 married Arabella H. WARNER, of Ashford. After living in East Otto and Ashford Hollow they settled in Great Valley in 1853, where Mrs. WHITNEY died in 1865. She was born in Keene, N. H., a daughter of Jerry and Phebe (HOWE) WARNER, of Scotch descent. Their children were Charles E., Eliza F., Warner J., Sarah E., Julia A., Spencer L., Fred M., Frank B. and George. Charles E. was born in 1845, in Sardinia, grew up on the farm with the usual common school advantages, and at the age of seventeen enlisted in Co. I, 154th N. Y. Vols., and joined the Army of the Potomac, fighting under McClellan, Burnside, Hooker, and Meade. In the battle of Chancellorsville he was severely wounded in his left thigh, after which he was captured and remained three days on the field, constantly under fire, without food or medical attention. After two weeks' imprisonment and eight months in the hospital he returned to his regiment and at Rocky Face Ridge, Ga., in 1864, was again captured and confined in Andersonville and other rebel prisons seven months, weighing but eighty-five pounds when he came out. He did no more active duty, is still lame in his shattered thigh, and receives a small pension. He married, in 1871, Sarah E., daughter of William C. HAGGERTY, of Humphrey. They settled in Kansas, where he was postmaster and justice of the peace ten years and also filled other town offices. Poor health brought them back in 1863 to this town, where his father had settled in 1866, and where he died in 1880. Children: Clara A. (Mrs. Frank H. MAHER), Julia E., Fred H. (died in Kansas), Marian E., and Fannie A. Mr. WHITNEY has always been a Republican and is now justice of the peace.
