Oakley Fayne11 Whitney (Oakley10, Lilla E.9, Artemas Henry8, George Washington7, John Smith6, Thomas5, Thomas4, Eleazer3, Thomas2, John1), son of Oakley10 and Vera Mildred (Hilton) Whitney, was born 8 Dec 1910, Athol MA,[1] and died 18 Jan 2007, Athol MA.

He married, Nov 1933, Ruth Lorraine White, daughter of Richard S. and Myntie G. (Newton) White. She was born 3 Dec 1913, MA, and died 27 Apr 2004, Athol, MA.

I am seeking permission to add excerpts from his obituary in the Athol Daily News, published 22 Jan 2007. It is included in the US Obituary Collection.

This couple actually celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary!!

The child of Oakley Fayne11 and Ruth Lorraine (White) Whitney is living.
