-private-, -private-, -private-, Charles Andrew (Safford) Whitney


Although my family is descended from Charles Andrew Whitney (1845-1882), who was born in New York and died in Pennsylvania, he was not genetically a Whitney. In the 1850 Watertown, Jefferson County, New York Census he is listed as Andrew Safford living in the household of Egbert Whitney who, in 1851 married Andrew's mother, Ann Safford. In the 1855 NY Census the Safford children are listed as Whitney. No adoption records have been found. In the 1880 Sunbury, Northumberland County, PA Census he is listed as Charles Whitney and his name appears as Charles Andrew Whitney on his wife Sarah's application for a Civil War pension.
Egbert Whitney's father was Job Whitney who married Sylva Delano and they are listed in the Miscellaneous Whitney Genealogical Database.


This person's DNA shows that he is a member of Haplogroup I1a. Haplogroup I appears to be native to Europe. Its initial spread is believed to be connected to migrations of people during the last glacial maximum. It can be found in most European populations, most commonly in Scandinavia, Sardinia and Slavic populations of the Western Balkans.
