Frank Graves9 Whitney (Orrin Ryland8, Lemuel7, Abraham6, Richard5, Israel4, Ebenezer3, Richard2, John1), son of Orrin Ryland7 and Eunice P. (------) Whitney, was born 26 Sep 1874, NY, and died before 1951, probably CT.

He married circa 1893, probably NY, Gertrude C. Sheppard, parentage unknown. She was born Jul 1875, England, and died 10 Jan 1951, Westport, CT.[1]

Note: In the 1900 census, Gertrude indicated she had 4 children and 3 were still living. In 1910, she indicated she had 5 children and 4 were still living. This could suggest that Gertrude is not the mother of one of the first three children or that Rose had died prior to the 1900 census, but was still listed.
