Mailing List Archives > 2000-10-29 04, Descendants of Ebenezer Whitney and Huldah Mooers, by Don Holmes

From: "Don Holmes" <donaldh -at- golden.net> Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Descendants of Ebenezer Whitney and Huldah Mooers Date: Sun, 29 Oct 2000 10:25:46 -0500 We are new to the list and would like to share our ancestral history as we know it. Marilyn is descended from Ebenezer & Huldah through their oldest son, Peter Whitney & his wife Margaret Haynes and their oldest daughter Sarah who married Pierre Ignace Valliere. We propose to show the references to Peter Whitney to-day and the Valliere genealogy in the future. Peter Whitney - born 12 Aug 1769, Maugerville, Sunbury County New Brunswick Canada - died 4 Oct 1845 - York Township, York County, Ontario- buried in St. John's Anglican Cemetery, York Mills. Margaret Haynes ca 1775- 6 April 1858 married Peter Whitney 13 April 1795 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. Margaret is the daughter of Joseph Haines Sr., a United Empire Loyalist. Their children are indicated with an asterisk: *Ebenezer - born 16 Oct 1795 at Niagara-on-the-Lake. We have no further record of him. *Sarah - born 6 March 1797 at Niagara-on-the-Lake died 13 Nov 1841 - married Pierre Ignace (Angus) Valliere *Huldah - born 21 July 1799 at Niagara-on-the-Lake We have no further record of her *Mehitable- born ca 1807 in York County Ontario - married William Henry Heath.

He married Jane Mara from Ireland about 1850 Their children: Mehetable - b - 10 Sept 1852 Richard - b- ca 1854 Alexander - b- 23 March 1858 ?? Margaret - b- 23 Dec 1858 ?????????

In many family histories of Peter Whitney's family there is often a vague reference to a son, Peter, however we have never been able to establish that there ever was such a person and until further proof we have omitted his name from the genealogy. We welcome any further input or amendments to this family history. Marilyn and Don Holmes Ontario
