His grandfather's family (incomplete) can be found here: <a href=""></a> His father Charles WHITNEY, son of Charles, was baptized on 15 Jul 1810, Watertown, MA, and was married on 29 Dec 1840, Hardwick, MA, to Martha G. COLLINS. I haven't found a record of his birth, or the deaths of Charles and Martha. That makes his ancestry: John-1 WHITNEY, m.(1) Elinor ----- John-2 WHITNEY, m.
