Lois Whittier-272 b. 1825 d 1870 in Maine.  Am having a few problems with this person and unsure of where I got the dates from.  Is there anyone who can help me find out if there was a Lois b. 1825 who was the daughter of a Whittier and which Whittier??

Could not get this onto "genealogy help" so putting it here.  Am terrible at looking up U.S.A. material so would really appreciate any help given to me.

Thank you.
You are correct, this is the wrong Lois.  There were a number of people called Lois in the various Whittier families.

According to "The Descendants of Thomas Whittier", she was the daughter of Porter Whittier and Lois Piper. See https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=wu.89062438676&view=1up&seq=125&q1=1292

Thanks a lot!  I can see that several members of the various families are missing and that is a wonderful contribution to the Whittier family history.
Am having some problems moving this information to Lois Whittier, daughter of Porter Whittier.  Using a new Catalina (Mac) program which doesn't allow me to just easily copy anything into it.  IOW  - you can't just copy directly and it seems quite complicated to me.  Getting too old but will persist and plan on talking to Apple tomorrow or the next day to see how to solve this.  Would prefer to have another OS but will see what they say.

Thanks again and I will eventually get this information onto Porter's file and his daughter's Profile adjusted.
