My sister and I are researching our Whitney line. Our gg grandfather was Timothy Watts Whitney, b. Dec 5, 1827 in Weston, VT. We recently learned that our ggg grandfather was Jacob Whitney of Weston, VT. He married Polly Watts, Jan 11, 1821.
Jacob Whitney was born Feb 16, 1797 in Andover, VT. He was the son of Richard Whitney and Sarah (Sally) Holt. Richard Whitney and Sarah Holt were married in Wilton, VT June 3, 1794. Richard Whitney was born in Wilton June 25, 1770 to Richard Whitney and Sarah (Butterfield) Whitney.
According to the records in Andover, VT, Jacob had a sister, Sally Whitney, born Oct 16, 1798.
The town of Weston,VT was created from the west side of Andover in 1800.
Records in Weston indicate that Jacob Whitney and Polly Watts had three children: Hugh Henry (abt 1823), Timothy Watts (Dec 5 1827) and Caroline L. (abt Apr 24 1830)
Jacob died Mar 24, 1833 in Weston, VT.
Jacob's lineage would be Jacob-7, Richard-6, Richard-5, Israel-4, Ebenezer-3, Richard-2, John-1
