In the spring of 1834 she was united in marriage to George WHITNEY, of Seneca, Ontario Co., N. Y., and in May of that year went to Michigan and with her husband settled in the town- ship of York, Washtenaw Co. In 1841 the family moved to Wheatland, Hillsdale Co., where she has since lived.

She met the sorrows and trials of life, of which she had an uncommon share, with rare courage and fortitude, bravely doing her duty to the end.
