Welcome!

Colin:

Welcome to the Whitney Research Group website! I found your family on the 1920 census residing in Fitchburg, Worcester Co., MA. I then checked on the 1891 U.K. Census and found one possible individual (this needs to be verified of course):

1891 U.K. Census, Darnhall, Cheshire, p. 12
58 Hebden Green
George Whitney Head M 50 Farmer      Chester Over
Martha "       Wife M 50 Farmer wife "       "
John "         Son  S 24 Labourer    "       "
William "      Son  S 16 "           "       "
Martha "       Dau  S 11 Scholar     "       Darnhall
Elizabeth "    Dau  S  9 "           "       "

Since your family comes from England, and you know the specific area (Cheshire), we would LOVE to have you participate in our DNA study. Your participation would help us to understand what one of the Whitney profiles from this region is, and if it matched one of the three large immigrant group's DNA profiles, we would then be able to concentrate our research for one of the 3 large Whitney immigrants to Cheshire. Hundreds of individuals could potentially be thanking you for helping to identify their origins! If you have any questions at all about this (cost, procedure, privacy, etc.), please don't hesitate to ask me.

Thank you so much for joining us here!

Colin:

Here's the email reply I sent to you back in 2006 on the Whitney-l mailing list:

I was able to find quite a bit of information on your line!! It appears your line came to America about 1891 directly from Runcorn, Cheshire, England. The earliest location I have been able to trace your family is to John Whitney, born about 1814 in Hartford, Cheshire, England.

Your line is: Donald-3, John-2, James-1, John-A Whitney
