Leonard7 Whitney (Nathan6, Nathan5, David4, Benjamin3, John2, John1), son of Nathan6 and Eunice (Puffer) Whitney, was born 25 Nov 1808, Westminster, MA,[1] and died 13 Dec 1880, Lincoln, MI, aged 72 years.[2]

He married, 9 Dec 1830, Providence, RI, Charlotte S. Allen.[3] She was born about 1809, MA, and died between 1870 and 1880.

He married secondly, before 1880, Sarah S. -----. She was born Feb 1815, VT, and died after 1900.

Heywood says "d. unm. in early manhood."[4] His death record proves that he did not, since it names his parents as Nathan and E. Whitney.
