Family:Whitney, Luther Thomas (1824-1850)
Luther Thomas7 Whitney (John6, William5, Richard4, Henry3, John2, Henry1), son of John6 and Olive (Mason) Whitney, was born 9 Jul 1824 (twin), Ellisburgh, NY, and died Jan 1850 [see notes below], Burnett, WI, where he was buried.
He married, 8 Jul 1849, Burnett, WI, Susan Romelia Wright, of Burnett, WI. She was born 2 Apr 1827, Adams, NY, and died 1893, North Bend, Jackson, Wisconsin. She married a second husband, and moved away; and the relatives of her first husband have lost all traces of her.
Child of Luther Thomas7 and Susan Romelia (Wright) Whitney:
i. Luther Francis8 Whitney, b. Aug 1850, Burnett, WI; m. Olive Emily Tucker.
According to the L.D.S. International Genealogical Index, the marriage occurred on 8 Jul 1849, Burnett, WI, and Luther's death on 12 Jun 1850. The 1850 Mortality Schedule says he died Jan 1850, Westford, Dodge Co., WI, of consumption, born 1825, NY. This is in accord with the below census record. Phoenix says 8 Jul 1850, and 12 Jan 1851, which apparently is wrong.
