After 40+ years of searching for the ancestors of Charles W Whitney-2359 we may have a lead to this Whitney branch.
We have indication that "Joseph Whitney moved from VT to Buffalo, NY in the arly days of that city. Later one dau and 3 sons, including Henry S Whitney-4542 move to (Spencer Co,) IN."--Whitney-L Archives
We have so much info (from Spencer Co, IN) on Charles Whitney-2359, Henry Whitney-4542, Joseph Whitney-4540 and Joshua Whitney-4509 that we have determined, with some certainty, that Joshua Whitney is the father of Charles W and that Henry and Joseph are Joshua's brothers. There is no other info on the dau indicated in the Whitney-L Archives that we have found except she may be the female enumerated as 10-15 yrs of age in the 1840 Spencer Co, IN census for Joseph L Whitney-4540.
The Whitney-L Archives indicate that the father of Henry Whitney-4542 is Joseph Whitney of VT and later of Buffalo NY having arrived in Buffalo as early as 1801.
Does any of this look familiar to any other WikiTree Member out there? Thanks so much in advance for taking a look!
