Josiah Whitney, parentage unknown, born about 1793, NY, and died after 1860.

He married, say 1812, Catharine -----. She was born about 1793, NY, and died after 1850.

He was listed as a laborer.

Children of Josiah and Catharine (-----) Whitney (possibly incomplete):

i. Angeline Whitney, b. ca. 1813, NY.
ii. (perhaps) Jane Mariah Whitney, b. ca. 1815, Canajoharie, Montgomery Co., NY, d. 25 Mar 1898, Morristown Township, St. Lawrence Co., NY. She m. Thomas McQueer. They were enumerated on the 1860 census in Morristown, St. Lawrence Co., NY with their 9 children.
iii. (probably) Nicholas F. Whitney, b. ca. 1815; m. Catherine Marie Parks.
iv. (daughter) Whitney, b. 1825-1830.
v. Levi William Whitney, b. ca. 1831, NY; m. Sarah A. -----.

Notes

This family was reconstructed from census records. Potential daughter Jane Mariah is only a possibility at this point.

Given the 1855 census record that he was born in Montgomery Co., NY, it seems possible that he was the son of the "Robart" Whitney of Charleston, Montgomery Co., NY, in 1800, who had a son 0-9.
