Family:Whitney, John Linus (1850-1930)
John Linus Whitney (John Linus), John Linus and Mary Amanda (Whitlock) Whitney, was born 14 Dec 1850, NY, and died 21 Jan 1930, Muncie, IN, aged 79 years 1 month 7 days, of urinary sepsis. He was buried in Beech Grove Cemetery, Muncie, IN.
He married, 21 Dec 1887, Darke Co., OH, Margaret K. Replogle, daughter of Jacob and Abigail (Jones) Replogle. She was born Mar 1849, Darke Co., OH, and died 26 Dec 1913. She was buried in Beech Grove Cemetery, Muncie, IN.
- "John Linus Whitney, Jr., married Margaret Replogle, daughter of Jacob and Abigail Replogle of Darke Co., Ohio. They had a son, John Clifton Whitney, who married Katherine Middleton; they in turn had Eugene Middleton Whitney (my father). My father states that Grandmother Katherine told him that when she had a name researched, she learned that a Mrs. Shields of Elkhart, In., was related to our family. In the 1940 telephone directory from that area, I found a Mrs. E. A. Shields living there, on 407 So. Second St. Does anyone have any knowledge of this family? We also believe that our family is registered with the Colonial Dames, by Mary Elizabeth Whitney, in 1935/9. Mrs. Mary (Whitney) Grumbling, P.O. Box 221, Forbestown, Ca., 95941."
