Whitney Family.
245

Child of Elijah and Elizabeth (Perry) Whitney. 278

1108 I. Hannah Whitney, was named in the will of her grandmother Hoyt, of Ridgefield, Conn., in June 1779. A Hannah Whitney, of Danbury, Conn., perhaps this one, married ----- Bass, and, after his death, Elijah Whitney,1 of Danbury, a farmer, whose origin is unknown. After the close of the Revolution, they moved to Philipstown, N. Y., thence to Coeymans, N. Y., and from there, about 1793 or 1794, to Leeds, near Gananoqui, Upper Canada, where they died; she, about 1810; he, about 1815. 3664



Chil. of Samuel and Sarah Whitney. 279

1109 I. Samuel Whitney, b. at Woodbury, Conn., 24 May 1772.
1110 II. Reuben Whitney, b. at Woodbury, Conn., 27 Sept. 1777.



Chil. of Samuel and Mariana (Banks) Whitney. 280

1111 I. Samuel Whitney, bap. at Greenfield, Conn., 2 Nov. 1766; was not named in the distribution of his father's estate, 14 Ap. 1821; and, perhaps, died young.
1112 II. Hannah Whitney, b. at Greenfield, Conn., 6 Nov. 1768; bap. at Greenfield, 13 Nov. 1768; married, 23 Feb. 1790, at Greenfield, Abel Downs, a tailor, who was born at Greenfield, 11 Dec. 1770. They settled at Weston, Conn., where she died, 16 Jan. 1823, and was buried. He died, 3 Jan. 1857, at Danbury, Conn., and was buried in Wooster Cemetery. He was elected drummer of a company of militia, under Capt. Josiah Whitney, in Greenfield, in Oct. 1793, and one of his children says that he served as a drummer in the war of 1812; while a tradition less trustworthy calls him a drummer in the Revolution. 3670
1113 III. Mariana Whitney, b. at Greenfield, Conn., 26 March 1774; bap. at Greenfield, 29 May 1774; married ----- Bradley; and died before 14 Ap. 1821, when her son, Nathan Bradley, received her share in her father's estate. The record of baptism calls her Mary Ann; but we have given the name as generally reported by the family. 3679
  1 Elijah Whitney, of Danbury, relation not stated, was appointed, 3 Dec. 1760, as administrator of the estate of Seth Whitney, "late of Danbury, deceased." The inventory, dated 16 Dec. 1760, amounted to £7 2s., and indicates that Seth Whitney was an unmarried man.
