  2 The following, which is part of the record of Josiah Anson Whitney, No.188, and should be read with it, was accidentally misplaced, and did not reach the compositor till page 66 had been printed:

They moved to Madrid, N. Y., about 1804, settling in that part of the town called Hamilton, since organized as Waddington, where they dwelt till Dec. 1812. Being ill, he was then moved by his brother, Richard Whitney, back to Westmoreland, where they lived within a stone's throw of the Vernon town-line. On the 8th of March, 1813, he fell dead on the road, while walking with some friends toward his house. He was buried in the east border of Vernon, on the north side of the old Seneca turnpike. His widow died in Gorham, N. Y., or, as another account says, in Canandaigua, N. Y., date unknown.
