Family:Whitney, Samuel (s1737-?)
Phoenix says the following:
- Samuel Whitney, b. at Norwalk, Conn.; was living at Norwalk, and fully fourteen years old, 30 Nov. 1752, when he chose John Seymour as his guardian; since which nothing is known of him, unless he was that Samuel Whitney, who, with his wife Sarah, was living at Woodbury, Conn., from 1772 to 1777.
Whether he was or was not Samuel Whitney of Woodbury is not proven. See his page for more discussion.
- All data imported from Stephen Whitney Phoenix, The Whitney family of Connecticut, and its affiliations; being an attempt to trace the descendants, as well in the female as the male lines, of Henry Whitney, from 1649 to 1878; to which is prefixed some account of the Whitneys of England. (New York : Priv. Print. [Bradford Press] 1878), p. 84.
