1.^  28 July 2005: Beth Breinholt talked to Christopher Andersen, superintendent of Glens Falls Cemetery, who read information from records at the sexton's office. Mary Eveline was listed as "wife" of George Sanders Whitney, and apparently buried in the same grave as infant son, Charles Zimri Whitney, next to George Sanders Whitney in Glens Falls Cemetery. No headstone for her, but there was one for him.
