WHITNEY GENEALOGY. 393

ship with T. W. SKINNER, and up to 1870 the law firm of Whitney & Skinner was known as one of the most successful in Oswego county. It was while in Mexico, in 1867, that Judge WHITNEY was first elected county judge. He succeeded the late Judge TYLE and the term was for four years. In 1871 he was re-elected and served a six-year term. He came to Oswego in 1870, and became the law partner of J. J. LAMOREE, and for several years the firm was known as Whitney & Lamoree. After they dissolved Judge WHITNEY continued the practice of his profession alone until up to about five years ago when he formed a partnership with his son, Mr. C. F. WHITNEY, and the firm has since been styled Whitney & Whitney. Judge WHITNEY was married to Miss Jane E. BROWN, of Shelburne, Vt., who survives her husband. There were three children born to them, all of whom are living; Mr. C. F. WHITNEY, of that city; Jennie L., wife of Benjamin R. STILLMAN, of Hartford, Conn., and Harry C. WHITNEY, of Watertown. Through his long life Judge WHITNEY had been a practical Christian. He was a member of Grace church, and at his death was a trustee and deacon. A few years ago he was prominent in Sunday-school work, in which he took an active interest. In the death of Judge WHITNEY the bar associ- ation of Oswego county has lost one of its oldest and most honored members, and Oswego a good citizen. He d. Sept. 16, 1890; res. Mexico and Oswego, N.
