SIXTH GENERATION.


Chil. of Hezekiah and Sarah (Taylor) Whitney. 87

442 I. Sarah Whitney, b. 23 Nov. 1764; married John Parsell, a blacksmith, of Norwalk, Conn. They moved, about 1818, to Esopus, N. Y., and thence to New Paltz, N. Y., a few miles north of New Paltz Landing, where he died, "about four weeks before 4 Nov. 1845." She went to live with her son, Hezekiah Parsell, and died a few years later. 1606
443 II. Thankful Whitney, b. 7 March 1766; died young.
444 III. Jeremiah Whitney, b. in Conn., 29 Aug. 1767; married, in 1788, Elizabeth Underhill, of Oswego Friends Meeting, in Dutchess Co., N. Y., who was born at Somers, N. Y., 5 Oct 1772, according to the family-record, while the records of the Marlborough Monthly Meeting of Friends say "5th of 10th mo., 1762". He was a farmer, and lived in several places; at one time, in Rosendale, N. Y., but principally at Modena (before 1820) and Plattekill Forest. He dwelt in Plattekill, N. Y., from 1830 to 1837, when he moved to Shelby, N.Y. He settled on a fine farm, near the east border of the town of Shelby, about a mile south of Millville. He died 4 Ap. 1843, and was buried, 6 April, in a Friends' Cemetery at Millville ; and has since been moved to a Friends' Cemetery just east of his farm, on the opposite side of the road. His widow returned to Plattekill, and lived for several years with her daughter, Prudence Whitney, but finally went back to Western New York, and died at the house of her son, Jesse Whitney, in Fairport, N. Y., in December 1852, aged 80 years, and was buried beside her husband, in the Friends' Cemetery at Shelby. She was a very acceptable preacher in Friends' meeting. 1609
445 IV. Zadok Whitney, b. 9 Feb. 1769; married Polly Golden; and settled in Wolcott, Vt, where his father, 16 Aug. 1792, for "parental goodwill and affection," conveyed to him the north part of his home-lot, with a house and barn thereon, being about fifty acres of land, "extending as far southerly as within two Rods of ye Bank on ye north side of ye River Lamoil." This land he sold, 20 Dec. 1796, for three hundred and forty dollars, to Thomas Taylor, of Wolcott. He was administrator or the estate of his father; and as such, 29 March 1804, then living in Elmore, Vt., he sold the dower-lands of the estate, with the mills and other buildings thereon, for three hundred and sixty dollars, to William Whitney, of 1620
