These brothers, with a friend, possibly a relative, removed to Broome county, New York, in the spring of 1787, settling in what afterward became
and first the city of Binghamton. They were the second part of settlers ^ to come in wagons. John Whitney, their brother, also came to Binghamton and lived at or near Chenango Forks, near his brother William, until 1812, when he removed to Rochester, N.Y. Further history unknown.

Feb. 7, 1823. There were probably two or three more who died in infancy. Another, Hannah, has been credited to this family, but the date of her birth is only sixteen or seventeen years later than that of John R., which makes it improbable (but not impossible) that she was a member of this family. By the second marriage the children were, Calista, Elydia, Climena, Rosa, Ambrosia, and Rhoda who died young, and Rosena, who died in 1867, at the age of nineteen.

When the "Toledo, Nor- walk and Cleveland" railroad (now the New York Central) was built through Camden, in 1852, and a village would come into being, Mr. Whitney laid out a village (the part of Kipton west of the main highway) and named in "Binghamton", from his native town. However, the name never appeared except upon the record of deeds, for some reason, and the village was dubbed "Kipton". Mr. Whitney's wife died April 3, 1870, having been born in England in 1808.

(1e) HANNAH WHITNEY. There is no certainty concerning the name of her
father. Some have thought she was a daughter of John R., but less than seventeen years was between their ages. Again, William W. Cook used to speak of her as his great aunt, which, if true, would make her a daughter of Lieut. Tom Whitney of Claverack, but this is impossible, for he was killed in 1776 and she ws born in 1802. Her identity may be established by some future historian. She was born Dec. 13, 1802 and died April 13, 1842. She married John Farmer July 23, 1818 and live, presumably, in Binghamton, as Mr. Farmer, with his second wife removed from Binghamton in 1834 to Camden, Ohio. They had children
(2e)Thomas Manson, (3e)Mary, (4e)Alexander D., born Feb. 4, 1825, (5e) William Whitney, (6e)Hannah Elizabeth and (7e)Eunice Jane, born Feb. 17, 1842.

Note: Quite a number of the descendants of General William Whitney were given his name, making it appear that his memory was revered. The fact that Hannah (Whitney) Farmer named one of her sons William
Whitney Farmer and her daughter Elizabeth name a son William Whitney Warren leads one to believe that Hannah Whitney Farmer must have been a near relative of William Whitney.
