Isaac6 Whitney (Daniel5, Daniel4, Jonathan3, Jonathan2, John1), son of Daniel5 and Katy (Stone) Whitney,[1] was born 17 Oct 1774, Shrewsbury, MA,[2] and died 17 Jan 1841, Saint Lawrence Co., NY.[3]

He married, 28 Feb 1799, Stamford, VT, Arilles Phetteplace.[4], parentage unknown. She was born ca. 1778, and died 30 Nov 1827, Saint Lawrence Co., NY.[5] It is unclear if her if her given name was Arilles as indicated in the marriage record or Arrilla as indicated in her burial record. Perhaps Arilles is her given name, but she went by Arrilla.
