Sixth Generation.
in Ap. 1867, she lived with her daughter, Mrs. Mary Eliza Bradley, of 56 Chapel Street, New Haven, Conn.
1164 III. Hannah Whitney, b. at Branford, Conn., 3 Aug. 1796; bap. at Branford, 2 July 1797; married at Branford, 4 Ap. 1816, Amariah Landcraft, of East Haven, Conn., son of George and Sarah (Jocelin) Landcraft (?). He died at East Haven, after which she dwelt with her daughter, Mrs. Grace Whitney Shelley, at No. 41 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, N. Y., and was living so late as 1867. 3864
1165 IV. Jared Whitney, b. at Branford, Conn., 2 June 1798; bap. at Branford, 29 July 1798; married in Georgetown, D. C., Mary Pickerall, dau. of Samuel and Catharine (Jenkins) Pickerall, of Charles Co., Md., where she was born. They lived at Washington and Georgetown, D. C., and finally settled on Potomac Creek, Va., where he died 25 Sept. 1832, and was buried in the Methodist Episcopal Cemetery in Georgetown. She died, 7 Jan. 1866, at Cannonsburgh, Penn., and was buried there. She suffered for twenty years from inflammatory rheumatism, yet was never heard to complain, or murmur at her lot; and Dr. Riddle, president of Jefferson College, at her funeral, said, "her family ought to thank God for sparing such a saint so long, to teach them, by her bright example and glorious death, the power of the Gospel to sustain and comfort its followers under such adverse circumstances."

The following notice of his death appeared in a Georgetown newspaper: "DIED.--On Tuesday last, at his residence on Potomac Creek, Mr. Jared Whitney, a native of New England, but for many years past a resident of this city, from whence he had very recently removed to his late residence, where, by his unceasing industry and the suavity of his manners, he was rendering his condition peculiarly enviable. The loss of such an individual, possessed of such endearing qualities, will long be a serious subject of regret, not only to the large family which he has left, and to his numerous relatives and friends, but to all who knew him intimately, as did the writer of this small tribute to his inestimable worth."

1166 V. William Whitney, b. in Branford, Conn., 16 June 1800; bap. at Branford, 17 Aug. 1800; a manufacturer of boots and shoes; has lived three years in Farmington, Conn.; five years in New Jersey; fourteen years in Washington and Georgetown, D. C.; three years in Springfield, Ohio; eleven years in Washington, again; and since that has lived for twenty years in Newark, N. J. He married at Irvington, in Clinton, N.
