In fact his mother and, if my guess is right, his brother are buried in the cemetery I mentioned. There is a pretty good bio of him at <a href=",%20nk.htm">,%20nk.htm</a> He's also in The Descendants of John Whitney by Pierce - #3875 - Pierce has quite a bit about him. <a href=""></a> Laurie ----- Original Message ----- From: "Frank Young" <fjyoung -at-> To: "Laurie Skillern" <whiski -at-> Sent: Friday, April 05, 2002 8:01 PM Subject: Re: [WHITNEY-L] Whitney's of Lake County Ohio > The prominent Whitney in 1830 Kirtland was Newell Kimball Whitney, the > principal bishop of the early Mormon church.
