Mary Elizabeth Whitney (Ephraim7, Ephraim6, Amos5, Amos4, Nathaniel3, Benjamin2, John1), daughter of Ephraim7 and Edith (Ross) Whitney, was born 31 Dec 1839, Tuscawaras Co., OH, and died 14 Jun 1915, Los Angeles, CA, where she was buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery. (Note: Her birth and death dates are from her California Death Certificate. The Bible record of her birth says she was born on that day in 1837, which makes more sense in light of the birth date of her brother George.)

She married secondly, 5 Feb 1868, Paxton, IL, Charles Fellows Peck. He was born Sep 1845, CT, and died 20 Jan 1912, Los Angeles, CA, where he was buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery.
