From: "James Whitney" <jameswhitney1716 -at- comcast.net> Subject: Harriet Whitney(1841-1910) married Edgar Henry Stiles(1839-1890?) in 1857 at Albany,N.Y. Date: Wed, 13 Oct 2004 12:18:44 -0400 Subject: Edgar Henry Stiles and wife Harriet Whitney-Albany co., New York I noticed your STILES family from Albany co., New York. My great Aunt Harriet Whitney married Edgar Henry Stiles and they lived with 3 children,Henry E.,Selden L., and Edgar F. in Albany,New York. Harriet's brother was George H. Whitney. All these families are buried in Waterford Rural cemetery across the river from Cohoes and Troy. Edgar and George were both carpenters. Troy, New York City Directory, 1890 Edgar H. Stiles carpenter 152 Main do. Cohoes and Waterford NY Troy, New York City Directory, 1890 George H. Whitney carpenter house 23 Schuyler Cohoes and Waterford NY Do you have any other info. on these families? Where did you get the date 1857 as their marriage-Edgar and Harriet? Sincerely yours, James E. Whitney,II ---------------------------- Hello, The information I got was copied by an elderly cousin from at least one old family Bible - unfortunately, the list I was given only has the couples' names and their marriage dates on it - nothing further (the Bible may not have any further information in it anyway). I have two transcripts here (despite the file names, I'm not sure if they're both from the same Bible or not) - will attach a scan of each to this letter - don't know if they will be much help to you. If you think this might be the same couple, I will add your information to my database. It's always good to be able to fill in more boxes. We are probably related. My great grandmother, Grace May FERO (1874-1945) was the daughter of Christopher FERO (b. 1825) and Adelia STILES (b. ca. 1830). I have some information on the FERO family, but little on the STILES line other than the family BIBLE list and some grave markers I photographed on a visit to Waterford Rural Cemetery last summer (see the following web page): <a href="http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~treebz65/cemeteries/new_york/saratoga/waterford_rural_cem/waterfordrural.html">http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~treebz65/cemeteries/new_york/saratoga/waterford_rural_cem/waterfordrural.html</a> I seem to have several relatives in that cemetery - just not sure yet how the FERO and STILES ones that I found connect onto my family tree. Hope this helps, Roxy Triebel Ancestral Photographs of Upstate New York <a href="http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~treebz65">http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~treebz65</a> End of correspondance with Stiles relative. -------------------------- Additional data on Stiles Family by James E.
