I am hoping to nail down the parents of cpt Benjamin Whitney.  I have followed a couple of trails and believe that Zachariah is the most likely candidate.  I Know Benjamin married Jerusha Brockway and my family flows from that union.  I am not totally sure that Benjamin came from Zachariah

two family trees on ancestry.com show Solomon as the father of cpt Benjamin Whitney.  I think there were two Benjamins born at about the same time in ct.  I am leaning toward the Zachariah branch because Cpt Benjamin traveled with a Joseph  in his journeys to VT.  I think this Joseph was his twin (?)

Familysearch.org also shows another son of Zachariah and Ruth Whitney named Joseph Whitney who was born on 05 Nov 1743 and would be a twin of Benjamin.
