Levi7 Whitney (Abner6, Samuel5, William4, Nathaniel3, John2, John1), son of Abner6 and Elizabeth (Glazier) Whitney, was born 1 Jan 1777, Westminster, MA,[1] and died 1845, Scriba, NY.

He married, 15 Oct 1799, Westminster, MA, Rebecca Warren,[2] daughter of Samuel and Anna (Merriam) Warren, and granddaughter of Samuel and Anna5 (Whitney) Merriam. She was born 28 Feb 1775, Ashburnham, MA, and died 19 Jul 1835 (or after 1840, see Notes below), Scriba, NY.

Children of Levi6 and Rebecca (Warren) Whitney:

i. Ruth Merriam7 Whitney, b. 3 Sep 1801, Gardner, MA;[3] m. (int. 24 Nov 1825, Fitchburg, MA[4]), 15 Dec 1825, Fitchburg, MA, Ephraim Barnes.[5] Children:
a. Ephraim Whitney Barnes, b. -----.
b. Edward Warren Barnes, b. -----.
c. Mary Annis Barnes, b. -----.
d. Levi L. Barnes, b. -----.
e. Loren M. Barnes, b. -----.
ii. Levi Warren Whitney, b. 17 Jun 1810, Gardner, MA;[6] m.(1) Samantha Farman; m.(2) Martha Bohannon; m.(3) Mary (Ireland) Weed.


The death date for his wife Rebecca (Warren) Whitney, 19 Jul 1835, is identical to the recorded death date of another Rebecca (Warren) Whitney, wife of a different Levi Whitney (1780-a1850), which is recorded in Stow, MA. The fact that the 1840 census of Scriba, NY, shows a female 60-69, suggests that his wife died after 1840.
