From: "Gail Anderson" <joelandgail -at-> Subject: Re: [WHITNEY] VT. Whitney's Date: Mon, 25 Sep 2006 21:53:04 -0600 In-Reply-To: <002e01c6e00d$b6c72920$5ce21648@your46e94owx6a> LeAnn, Gail, here, I don't know if you got the e-mail I sent. I found James Whitney from Madison WI, On the Whitney Web site, who knows his linage goes back to David brother of Silas, whom I believe is the father of our Silas Newcomb. He is willing to submit DNA for the 67 marker test. Our family will pay the fee since he doesn't really need to do it as he is not in doubt as to his linage. I am very excited to see how our DNA Profiles Compare. I compared our 37 marker Whitney family DNA to Tim Doyle's 67 markers and we are a perfect match for the first 37. That brings us one generation closer to Silas of Vermont. His line comes through John and Elinor then Thomas (I can't remember who after that but it is different). Our difference is that we come through John/Elinor, Thomas, Benjamin, David, Silas then Silas Newcomb. James is a descendant of David, so it will be interesting to see what 67 markers show if there will be any differences, and if so, what they mean. We should know in about 6 to 8 weeks. Fun stuff! Has your family participated in the DNA study? If so perhaps we can also compare notes. I look forward to comparing notes with others as we expand the tests. I thought that someone on the site said that they were related to Silas and had a 67 marker test. But I can't find the e-mail any where. I wonder if I dreamed it. Any body out there see or write that e-mail? Help, am I losing it?

Whitney's I am writing in response to Gail Anderson's post re Silas Whitney. I, too, am from a Silas Whitney line. I have Alonzo Wells Newcom Whitney, b Dec 17, 1818 to Silas Newcom and Mary Whitney in Canandaigua, Ontario County, NY. His mother Mary Wheeler Whitney moved with her mother, Mary Kelly Wheeler and children to Ohio in 1820. Silas is never mentioned after the birth of Alonzo. Silas is my brick wall. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
