From: "Jeanne Muse" <jwmuse -at-> Subject: [WHITNEY-L] A Whitney Family Bible Date: Tue, 2 Apr 2002 19:17:40 -0500 Dear WRG: A Whitney Family Bible has been found which I believe provides NEW information for the Henry Whitney database. If I am correct, this concerns the descendants of Elijah and Elizabeth (PERRY) Whitney (Elijah-5 Elijah-4 Richard-3 John-2 Henry-1), for whom Phoenix has very little information. Sally Lorentz Anderson (SAF14403 -at- says she has been a genealogist for 30 years, bought the Bible in Connecticut "at a TAG Sale", and would like to sell it for the amount she has in it ($50) plus postage (preferrably to a descendant). Her message about this was originally posted on's Whitney Surname message board. Get in touch with Sally directly by email if you connect -- but please also let me know so I can add this line to the Henry Whitney database. The below has been copied from a series of e-mails. My notes are preceded by **. Jeanne (Whitney) Muse jwmuse -at- The Bible is approximately 8x11 printed in 1859 and is in pretty good shape. The front is detached from the spine but can be easily repaired, your local library or historical society can help there. Inscription Page Reads "To My Son, Mr Jacob Whitney, By His Father, Mr Elijah Whitney 25 Jan 1860." This is the Information from the Bible Pages: Marriage: Jacob WHITNEY and Rezone CHILLS 30 Dec 1860 Births: Jacob WHITNEY 3 Jun 1832 Rezone WHITNEY (CHILLS) 25 Feb 1842 Charles Wesley WHITNEY 26 Jan 1862 George Henry WHITNEY 25 Dec 1867 Belle WHITNEY 22 Aug 1869 Ratie (Ratir) WHITNEY 18 Aug 1874 Willie WHITNEY 3 Jan 1878 Deaths: Ratie WHITNEY BANNER 21 Apr 1893 Jacob Dec 2 1903 Rose (Rozella) 20 Jan 1914 Charlie 5 Apr 1919 George 21 Nov 1927 The next paper has Jacob's parents Elijah and Polly BOOMHEUR and Children: Elijah WHITNEY and Polly BOOMHEUR Daughter of Jacob BOOMHEUR of Delhi, NY Were Married 13 Jan 1818.
