There is a good sized Whitney family which is not included here and I have some of the data.

Sylvia Wylie ?? During a visit to Rockery Cemetery Charles and Mary Wattson found a stone with “Sylvia” in the Wylie area. This could be Sylvia b 3-11-1883 and died the next day 3-12.

The 1870 Census of Tyrone Cty shows William D. and Annie living in Sparta with Ernest 3 yrs old. The 1880 census Sparta Village page 20 shows William D 33yr old Carpenter, Annie M Wife 33 yrs old, Ernest 13 yrs old, Ira 3 yrs old, Clyde 4yrs old, Mary 1yr old.
