Whitney was born in Washington, Vt., Jan. 17, 1847. Went to Wis- consin when but four years of age. His first recollections of Wisconsin are playing along the streams near Ft. Atkinson with cousins-members of Captain Whitney's family-feeding fish as they sprang from the clear brooks to catch the bits of bread thrown by childish hands. Having a bilious temperament marlaria soon produced fever and ague. The remedy often being packed in a cold wet sheet, afterward the inevitable chologogue. The first ten years were spent in the common schools where the writer mastered the common branches and was honored with a certificate entitling him to teach in Jefferson Co. He spent some time in the State Normal school at Whitewater, Wis. He taught six terms of school. In 1864 he enlised in the 40th Regt. Wis. Vol. Inft. and served four months, came home with the sick of his regiment and was honorably discharged at Madison, Wis. Was converted in June, 1867, and soon after entered the ministry of the United Brethren church. He has served his conference in the relation of presiding elder seven years. Has been three times elected as delegate to the general conference of his church, and two years held the position of conference evangelist. Is treasurer of the missionsary society and always identified with the educational interests of the church; res. Burr, Wis. 8521. i. GRACE, b. Jan. 20, 1881. 8522. ii. ESTELLE, b. Feb. 10, 1887; d.
