I 2313 1 n. George Frederick Wright, b. in Manlius, N. Y., 23 Nov. 1S07; 

j "^ a fur-dealer; married, 28 Ap. 1839, at Fort Wayne, Indiana, Laura Louisa 

Parsons, who was born in Sandisficld, Mass., 27 Feb. 1823, dau. of Joseph 

Gibson and Roxana Lucretia (Case) Parsons. He was first employed, as an 

accountant, in Auburn, for two years, or more; then, for a time, in the same 

capacity, in the State Prison at Auburn; after which he went to Cleveland, 

Ohio, where he remained two years. Thence he m.o\-cd to Fort Wayne, 

Indiana, and there engaged in the dry-goods trade, continuing for seven 

years, till the Spring of 1842, when he removed to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, 

and settled on a farm, whicli is now nearly in the centre of the city. 

Here he engaged in the fur-trade, which, with other enterprises, occupied 

I his attention, till he died of consumption, at his residence on Algoma 

I Street, 6 Jan. 1869. The following extracts from an editorial notice of his 

I death, published in an Oshkosii paper, show something of his character, 

I and of the estimation in which he was held: "Probably the death of no 

I other person could create here a sensation so profound, and so sorrowful, 

especially among the older residents of the city." 

I "The old log-house, in which he first lived, has been carefull}' ;)reser\xd, 

; and still Sitands in the extensi\-e and beautiful grounds v.hich surround the 

j more modern d\\elling. He was one of the sagacious few who early 

] foresaw the destiny of the spot on wliich a city has grown up around him. 

i During all the twenty-six years of his residence ; in which he saw the 

canoes and Indian trails, of the early days, disappear, gi\'ing place to the 

steamboats and railroads, which the needs of an increasing civilization and 

a growing population demanded ; and watched the wilderness become tlie 

bus\', thriving city ; he pursued the even tenor of his way, foremost in 

every good word and work; open-handed, generous, always dispensing an 

unlimited and most hearty liospitality ; the friend alike of old and young, 

of rich and poor ; respected b\- all ; esteemed by a large circle of more 

intimate friends ; and warmly loved b}" tlic few on whom he lavished the 

wealth of l^s great affections." 

" During all his residence here, 'Wx. Wright has been extensively 
engaged in the purchase of furs, and b\- stead\- attention to business, and 
a keen shrewdness that was alwa\-s mingled with his jolly, unfailing good- 
nature, together with the increase in value of his real estate, he accumulated 
a respectable fortune, notwithstanding the heavy losses he e.xperienced in 
some public enterprises. His business frequentl}" required tedious journeys 
through the frontier settlements; and probably no man was so well known, 
from the Wisconsin river on the West, to awa}- up into the peninsula of 
Michigan on the North, in city, town and hamlet, down to the settler's 
rude cabin, or the ruder wigAvam of the Indian in the still far woods ; and 
wherever known, he was trusted and loved, and his coming hailed with 
delight." 

He held the office of justice of the peace, and other Count}' offices. 
His widow was living at Oshkosh in 1S74.

at Oshkosh' Wis., by Rev. Hiram Freeman, Congregational, to John 
Walter Scott, a jc\s'eller, who was born at Meadville, Penn., 3 Sept. 1S23, 
dau. of James and Margaret (McXamara) Scott. Tliey settled at Oshkosh, 
where he had already lived since 1S48. He was a useful member and 
officer of the M. E. Church ; and, " by his quiet demeanor, gentlemanly 
deportment, strict integrity, and upright conduct, he won the respect and 
confidence of all who knew him." He served throughout the Mexican 
War, unhurt. At the beginning of the war of 1861, he raised a company 
in Oshkosh, called the " Scott Volunteers", of which he was captain. The 
company being full bj- 24 Ap. 1S61, it was assigned to the 3d Reg., Wis- 
consin Volunteers, and went at once to the seat of war. He became major, I 
and afterward lieut.-coL, of his regiment; and was killed in the battle of 
Chancellorsville, i May 1863. A local paper said of him: "From the j 
first he has been in the Army of the Potomac, and has participated in most i 
of the terrible battles between Washington and Richmond, and in the } 
neighborhood of the latter citv. At the battle of South Alountain he was I 
severely, and at one time it was thought mortally, wounded in the arm ' 
and shoulder, which for some time disabled him from active service. He [ 
i returned,home for a short time on furlough ; but restless and impatient to 
be at his post, hejiurried back long before his phj'sical condition would 
I permit him to en ""'.the field, disregarding the personal inconvenience 
I experienced from hi"s-vii"n injuries, that he might give his personal atten- 
tion to the wants and necessities of his fellow soldiers. 

I " He was a thorough disciplinarian ; and as he }-ielded unquestioning 
j obedience to his superiors, so he exacted the same from his subordinates. 
I He was watchful of the interests and welfare of those in his command, and 
I he was alwa\-s at his post when duty called him — whether it was one of 
I ease and security, or one of peril and danger. 

" The name of Col. Scott deserves a prominent place among those who 
have fallen in the present conflict. He died, like a true soldier, in the 
hottest of the fight, at the head of his regiment ; and his remains now lie 
i in a soldier's'grave, in the soil of the Old Dominion."

graduated at Middlebury, Vt., in 1834, at twenty-four years of age. I 
immediate!}' repaired to Norwalk, Conn., where I took charge of an 
academy. In 1836, I entered the theological department of Yale College; 
married in New Maven, Conn., 1837, Miss Lucy B. Fletcher, of the same 
city. 

"I then assumed the charge of an academy in Southington, Conn.; was 
blessed, while there, with a glorious re\'ival, in which nearly all my pupils 
were converted. 

"In 1838, I accepted the secretar)'ship of the 'New England Sabbath 

School Union.' Being troubled with a bronchial affection, I went south at 

the suggestion of Dr. Jackson, of Boston. For tuo jears, 1839 and 1840, 

j I had charge of the Female Department of " Barton Institute,' Mobile, Ala. 

Suffering there from )-ellow fever, I returned to Vermont, took charge, as 

Principal, of the ' Literary and Scientific Institute' at Brandon, Vt. In 

1843, I again went to Alabama, taught one year in ' Howard College,' 

Marion; and in 1844, I went to Cahaba, Ala., and acted as Principal of 

the ' Male and Female Academy' for a term of four years. In the Fall of 

j 1848, I removed to Carlowville, Ala., where I spent four j-ears in charge 

! of a Female Academy. Up to this time, I continued to preach as oppor- 

j tunity presented, but, by medical advice, I relinquished preaching 

i altogether, and in 1S53, I assumed, as Principal or President, the charge 

I of the 'Masonic Universit)-' at Selma, Ala. This institution ha\ing failed 

i in its monetar}' afiiiirs, I went again to Mobile, and for two years had 

I charge of the ' Latin High School,' the classical department of the ' Barton 

Academy,' and at that time numbered among the public schools of the 

city. In 1857, I w^ent to Livingston, Sumter Co., Ala., where for six 

years I had charge of a very interesting Female Academj'. Soon after 

the breaking out of the war, I repaired again to Mobile, and invested all 

my available means in the manufacture of salt ; but this arrangement was 

soon broken up b)- the surrender of the forts which guarded the entrance 

of Mobile Bay. Being a non-combatant, I was again forced to leave the 

city, and was a resident of Selma, at the time of the destruction of that 

city and its public works by the Federal forces under Gen. Wilson. 

"All my worldly possessions having been destro}-ed by the misfortunes 
of war, I was compelled, with my wife and only child (Henrietta Elizabeth), 
to begin the world again dc novo. In 1867, I came to Atlanta, Ga., and 
after spending four years teaching a private school of girls, in a brick 
school-room of my own construction, I was called, at the inauguration of 
our present public school system, to take charge, as principal, of Walker- 
Street school, having something over four hundred pupils. This position 
I still hold, and, although I find it to be a responsible charge for one of my 
years (now sixty-two), j-et it is a noble work, and one in which I trust, by 
divine assistance, I may be able to do a great deal of good. My wife, 
Lucy F. Rockwell, died of paralysis in this city, on the 29th of March, 
1871."

! Ridgefield, Conn., 22 July 1786, son of Peter and Deborah (Weed) Starr. 
j They settled in Danbur>\ 

He was an industrious and intelligent man, with not even common- 

! school advantages ; but early formed the habit of reading — never sitting 

i down in the house without a book ; and often, after a full day's work, 

spending half of the night in reading — and having the power to retain the 

: important part of what he read, his mind became remarkably well stored 

with knowledge, which he was able to impart to others in the fewest 

possible words. He was an early, enthusiastic, yet quiet Methodist ; for 

many years, an acceptable local preacher; and his influence did much to 

build up the Methodist Episcopal Church in that region. He represented 

Danbury in the Conn. Legislature for one year; and was, for one term, a 

member of the Senate of that State. 

They died in Danbury (he, of er}-sipelas, 27 Feb. 1845, after a brief

and successful preachers in the denomination to which he belonged. The 
Union Baptist Church was the first with which he sustained the pastoral 
relation in this city (New York), and under his ministrations soon outgrew 
its place of worship and erected the church on Stanton Street ; that house 
proved inadequate to accommodate the congregation he attracted, and 
eventually the communicants could not find room. Necessity thus com- 
pelled a portion of the church to withdraw, which they did with him as 
their pastor, and purchased the church on the corner of Norfolk and 
Broome Streets, which church he saw burned to the ground a short time 
before he died. The congregation built on Norfolk Street, and in a few 
years sold to the Methodists, and is now flourishing uptown as the 5th 
Avenue Baptist Church. The character of Rev. Mr. Benedict was distin- 
guished for its gentleness, meekness and patience, and yet possessed of 
sufficient firmness to resist the encroachments of error. As a pastor, he 
was to the aged a companion and friend, to the young an example and 
adviser; as a preacher, he was faithful and prayerful, admonishing his 
hearers with an earnestness that made him eloquent, and a kindness that 
would have been closed against denunciations. As a man, he was kind, 
forgiving, compassionate and just. In the social circle, his cheerful 
disposition rendered him the joy of the household." He died 28 Oct. 
1848, and was buried in Greenwood Cemetery.'

highest stamp ; kind and benevolent to all, public-spirited, and ever ready 
to assist in any undertaking that would be to the future good and welfare 
of our town. We look upon the death of Mr. Keeler as a great public 
loss ; fev/ men possessed his excellent characteristics and traits as a 
generous, high-toned citizen. His manners were unostentatious, quiet, 
and pleasant, but his actions positive ; and there seemed to be a 
firmness of intention which could not be turned aside until his wishes 
were accomplished. He was a prominent and consistent member of the 
Congregational Church, faithful in executing all church duties devolving 
upon him, and has enjoyed the utmost confidence and respect of his fellow- 
citizens."'

at Rochester, N. Y., 9 March 1841, Maria Ward Chapin, born there 31 ! 
May 1819, dau. of Hon. Moses and Esther Maria (Ward) Chapin.' She; 
went with him to Beirut, as a missionarj- of the A. B. C. F. M., where she , 
died, 27 May 1842, and was buried in the Mission Cemetery. He was ' 
married (3d)^ at Northampton, Mass., by Rev. E. P. Rogers, D. D., 23 Oct. j 
1846, to Hetty Simpkins Butler, born at Northampton, 15 Sept. 1816, ! 
dau. of Daniel and EHzabeth (Simpkins) Butler. He then returned to j 
Beirut, where he continued his labors until his death, ii Jan. 1857. He: 
was buried in the Mission Cemetery at that place. His widow, who j 
was living at East Windsor Hill, Conn., in 1868, said of him: " My | 
dear husband's record there is a long story of earnest, faithful work- j 
ing for his Master ; and when called to lea\'e this work, his mental | 
powers seemed to me in their prime. His mind and habits of study i 
were peculiarly fitted for translating ; and our Arabic Bible is his I 
monument." 

The following editorial notice of his death appeared in TIic New York \ 
Observer, for 26 Feb. 1857: I 

" The church and the world are called to mourn together over the loss \ 
of one of the men of the age, a minister, a missionary, a philanthropist, a ' 
scholar — one whose learning, talents, piety and heroism have placed him 
in the front rank of modern benefactors of their fellow- men, and whose 
works will remain a monument to his memory, and a blessing to the j 
human race. The Rev. Eli Smith, D. D., died at Beirut, Syria, Jan. nth, 
1857. I 

"He was born in Northford, Conn., Sept. 13, 1801; graduated at Yale I 
College in 1821, and at Andover Theological Seminary in 1826. He! 
entered at once into the service of the American Board, and embarked at ; 
Boston, May 23, and arrived at Malta, July 13, 1826. He visited Eg>'pt | 
and Syria in the Winter of the same year, Greece in 1829. and in company j 
with Rev. H. G. O. Dwight, made a great exploring tour in Armenia in ; 
1830 and 1831. He visited the United States in 1S32, and in 1833] 
returned to Syria. In 1836-7, we find him in Turkey and Asia i\Iinor; | 
and in 1837-8, with our countryman, Dr. Robinson, performing 
their great journey in the Desert and Palestine. Soon aftenvard he 
visited the United States again; and from 1840 onward, with little j 
interruption except a briefer tour with Dr. Robinson over parts of the i 
Holy Land, he has been intently laboring in his translation of the Holy j 
Scriptures. 

" For more than a quarter of a century, his name has been identified | 
with the operations of the American Board of Foreign Missions in the j 
Levant ; and his repeated visits to this country, rendered necessary by the 
state of his health, or by the exigencies of the cause, have made him the \ 
personal acquaintance and friend of thousands who lo\e the missionary 

I See the Chapin Gaiealogy, p. 96. 



cause ; so that it may truly be said of him that no one of the corps of 
missionaries in the foreign field was better known, or more endeared to 
the American churches, than he. 

" His tone of mind, his habits of thought and research, his extensive 
travel and intimate familiarity with the manners, customs, languages and 
ideas of the East, combined to fit him eminently for the work to which he 
was specially devoted during the latter years of his life, the translation of 
the Holy Scriptures into the Arabic tongue. This was the labor of his 
heart, as well as of his mind and hands. Three years ago, he welcomed 
us to his house in Syria, and led us into his study, where his years of 
manly vigour were fast wearing into untimely age in the laborious prose- 
cution of the translation. On his table were spread out the great Arabic 
dictionaries, and other helps which he had gathered with much expense 
I and toil — some of them never having been printed, and therefore occupy- 
! ing almost countless pages of manuscript, through which he must chase 
I the words of Holy Writ to find the symbols of the idea in the Arabic 
! mind. Here was the huge dictionary of Feirnzabadeh, and the Tcshil, 
! Jbmalih Grammar, with the Commentarj- of Ashmuny. Near him was 
' the Pentateuch, in a very ancient A.rabic translation, from the Medicean 
{ press at Rome in 1591, a work of great value in rendering other parts of 
; Scripture into, that language, and to which Dr. Smith was constantly 
' referring. The windows of his study looked out upon the missionarj- 
burying-ground, and the grave of Pliny Fisk, the first American missionary* { 
I to the Holy Land ; and as he stood there, and spoke of the death of former | 
I laborers in that field. Dr. Smith said with great simplicit)-, and \-et with 
deep sadness in his tones, that he hoped his life would be spared until he 
I had completed the translation on which he was engaged. His health was 
! then feeble, and it became more delicate after he left Syria. By the advice 
I of his brethren, he made a journey northward, visiting other parts of the 
I Eastern field, and returned with somewhat recruited strength to his post ' 
j and work. But his work was nearly done. So, day after day and month 
I after month, when exhausted strength required that he should rest from 
his labors in the bosom of his family and friends, did Eli Smith make his 
weary way to his study, and add a few more lines to that immortal work ; 
which, though left unfinished, is to remain as the monument of his useful- ' 
ness and to perpetuate the name of the author among the Arab races of i 
the East. ! 

" He had completed the New Testament, the Pentateuch, and some of 
the Prophets. A part of the Neiv Testament has been printed, and the 
books of Genesis and Exodus. 

" It was to be expected that the end of such a life as Eli Smith's would 
be peace. Gentle in his spirit, calm, scholarly and chaste in his mental 
exercises, with all his faculties attuned by the soothing influences of 
scholastic retirement and the hallowed charms of domestic aftection, and j 
chastened sorely in the school of affliction ; having voluntarily put away I

from him the tempting lures of ambition which his fame and learning held 
forth — for he might have held any high place among the scholars of the 
times, to which he aspired — and having consecrated himself to the single 
work of preaching the gospel in the Arabic tongue, and leaving that gospel 
in that language for those who should come after him, he was willing, nay, 
desirous, to live till he should complete the labor of his hands — but if other- 
wise ordered, he was equally willing to die. ' For me to live is Christ's, 
but to die is gain.' And so he died. His mind was full of peace. He 
saw the approach of the angel of death, but had no fears. Christ was with 
him and strengthened him in the hours of dissolving nature, and gave him 
a sweet release. 

" We shall attempt no analysis or outline of the character of Dr. Smith. 
As the companion of Dr. Robinson in his successive journeys of exploration 
in the Holy Land, he has made most important contributions to the litera- 
ture, geography and topography of Palestine; and Dr. R., in his preface, 
bears the fullest and highest testimony to Dr. Smith's learning and ability 
as constantly brought to bear upon the researches which ha\e made their 
joint work the most important treasury of knowledge respecting the land 
of the Bible that has been produced in any country or age. As a preacher, 
a missionary- and Christian, he was modest, humble and persevering, never 
obtruding himself but always promoting his Master's work. As an 
Oriental scholar, he had few, if any, superiors. His attainments made his 
correspondence sought by men of eminence in man}- lands, but his mind 
was never diverted from the labor of his life, in which it pleased God to 1 
permit him to die. I 

" Thus one after another of our great and good men, our beloved and 
honored missionaries, are passing awaj-. Let us be followers of them who : 
through faith and patience have inherited the promise."

Wolcott he went to Salem sixteen months, and from Salem to East Lyme, 
where he has labored with much success three years, and where he still 
resides, receiving the greatest kindness from his people, while deeply

Chil. of John and Statira (Farrell) Whitney, 



1 147 



I. George Lewis Whitney, b. at Branford, Conn., 2 Sept. 1807; 10272 
a printer, editor, and commercial correspondent ; married by Rev. A. D. 
Eddy, at Canandaigua, N. Y., iS Jan. 183], to Lucinda Barlow 
Williams, born at Canandaigua, 16 May 1 8 10, youngest dau. of Dr. 
William Augustus Williams.' She died at Canandaigua, 20 Alay, 1S61. 
The following, from the Ontario Repository, Canandaigua, 23 May 1 861, 
is a part of her husband's tribute to her memory : j 

" If our columns bear evidence of the absence of our usual attention 
upon them, this week, the reason is furnished in the fact that for several 
days past, we have been chiefly confined to the sick-room and dying-bed 
of a long-cherished and most intimate companion, — one who had stronger 
claims upon our affections, our s\"mpathies and personal attention than all 
earthly objects besides. The wife of the editor of this paper, previous to 
her death, had been sick for several weeks, from a painful and incurable 
disease — a cancerous affection of the lungs — which terminated fatally last 
Monday morning. She bore her sufferings with a Christian fortitude and 
resignation, and with a confidence of being able to hold out to the end, 
which afforded a beautiful and convincing testimony in support of the 
religion, which for more than thirty years, she had professed and consist- 
ently practised in all the relations of life. As wife, motlier, friend and 
neighbor — and as a member of the community in all its varied relations, 
j the promptings of her kind heart were never confined to the cold forms or 
I mere conventionalities which too often control the acts even of the charit- 
I able and the good. Her heart was a perennial fountain of benevolence, 
j open at all times to ever)-body, as the closing scenes in her life fully 
j attested." 

I The Detroit Daily Advertiser, of 28 May 1861, said: "To many citi- 
j zens of this place this will be a sad announcement. In her residence here 
of ten years prior to 1840, she endeared herself to a large circle of

acquaintances, many of whom still live to remember and mourn for her. 
To an ardent and generous temperament, a singularly unselfish and self- 
sacrificing disposition, and a mind and heart of transparent truthfulness 
and integrity, she united a talent of keen observation and lively powers of 
description, which among friends who knew her intimately, gave great zest 
and vivacity to her conversation. But it is as a true and warm-hearted 
friend, a tender wife and mother, and a sympathizing benefactor to the 
neglected and the needy, that she will be especially held in aftectionate and 
grateful remembrance. As a Christian, her life of humble and undoubt-. 
ing faith was crowned by a death of signal triumph. Leaving a pleasant 
home, a husband and six affectionate children, she could yet say, ' It is not 
such a terrible thing to die !' As the scenes of time faded, her faith lit up 
the dark valley with the bright presence of her Saviour, until ' the shadow 
of death was turned into the morning,' the morning of an unending day." 

She was buried in Canandaigua, the day after her death, from the Con- 
gregational Church (Dr. Dagget's), of which she had been a member for 
more than twenty years. 

He was married (2d), by Rev. Mr. Bushnell, at Fremont, Ohio, 7 Aug. 
1862, to Anna Roosevelt MacEnaliy, born at New York City, 8 Nov. 1835, 
dau. of James and Caroline (Roosevelt) MacEnaliy,' and g. dau. of Corne- 
lius L. and. Ann (Lockwood) Roosevelt. After his death, she returned to 
Canandaigua, and was living there in 1868. 

The following, from The Advertiser and Tribune, of Detroit, 28 June 
1867, shows the principal facts of his life: 

"Almost equally as startling as the announcement of the death of Judge 
VVitherell on Wednesday, was that of the demise of George L. Whitney, 
Esq., yesterday forenoon. Mr. Whitney had been quite unwell all Winter 
and, only a week or two since, was seriously meditating a trip to Europe 
as the only possible hope of restoration. He was then quite feeble. Last 
week he was taken to St. Luke's hospital, from which time he continued 
to fail till about lo o'clock yesterday morning, when he ceased to breathe. 
His family, who have for the past year been residing at Pontiac, were with 
him at the time of his decease. His remains it is intended to remove to 
Canandaigua, N. Y., for interment. 

" George L. Whitney was born in 1808, consequently was 59 at the time 
of his death. He learned the printer's trade and was emplo>-ed in a New- 
York office. In 1829 the only newspaper published in Detroit was the old 
Detroit Gazettf, the Democratic organ. The Whigs needed a mouth-piece, 
and, in the year mentioned, the late Oliver Newberry, in their behalf, 
visited New York for the purpose of securing the material for an office, 
and a printer to take charge of it. Mr. Whitney was recommended to him 
as a young man worthy and competent. With his assistance a font of type 
and presses were bought, all the funds being supplied by Mr. Newberry

and his associates. Mr. Whitney was 21 years of age when he thus re- 
moved to Detroit. In November of that year (1829), the first number of 
the Northwestern Journal was issued, and so admirable was its typograph- 
ical appearance and general newspaper characteristics, that it at once 
assumed the position of leading paper in the Territory. For three years it 
was issued weekly, then semi-weekly, and at last, in June 1836, under the 
title of the Advertiser, the paper became a daily. ]\Ir. Whitney did not, 
at that time, assume to manage the political course of his paper. For that, 
some of the ablest talent in the Territoiy was secured, and Wm. Ward, 
Maj. Rowland, Franklin Sawyer, and, among others, the late Judge Chip- 
man, were successively at the political helm. Mr. Whitney must, for a 
time, have done well, for he assumed the responsibilities of a famih', and 
erected for his own use the comfortable residence on the corner of Brush 
and Larned Streets, now occupied by Hon. Wm. Warner. But the severe 
financial troubles of 1^2,6-7 seriously attected the business of the young 
publisher, and by degrees his office fell into the hands of Hon. A. S. Porter, 
for whom Mr. Whitney continued to publish the Advertiser until the fall 
of 1839, when he disposed of all his interests in Detroit, and removed to 
Canandaigua, N. Y. There he again established himself in business as the 
publisher of the Ontario Repository. There he remained for a number of 
years. The Repository was a capital village paper, and no doubt afforded 
a comfortable income. Witli the formation of the Republican party in 
1856, however, Mr. Whitney had no S}'mpathy; and continuing to issue a 
Whig paper after the ^^'hig part\- was dead, he very naturally found his 
business dwindling away. In 1S59 or 1S60, too, he had the misfortune to 
lose his wife. He became unsettled, sold his paper, and in 1861 removed 
again to Detroit. Without capital, he found it more difficult, to engage in 
remunerative business than on his former advent here, and he was this 
time fain to accept a salaried situation on the newspaper of which he had 
been the founder. Subsequenth- he established a commercial periodical, 
which, however, did not succeed. He then became the editor of the 
Commereial Advertiser, a weekly paper issued in this city, and on this he 
remained up to the time of his death. 

" Mr. Whitney was a pleasing writer, and an industrious compiler of 
statistical information setting forth the great natural resources of his adopted 
State. During the last few years, he has been the valued Detroit corres- 
pondent of several American and European journals, and no man has 
probably done more to show up the great advantage Michigan offers to 
emigrants and settlers, than he has done in these letters. The State owes 
him a debt in this behalf that few will ever appreciate. Socially he was a 
genial and pleasant companion, and in his family an indulgent husband and 
father. His favorite amusement was music, for which he possessed talent in 
a high degree. In his earlier years, he excelled as an organist, while his 
merit as a composer is evinced by numerous published pieces, chiefly of 
sacred music, that are still to be found in our various popular collections.

A beautiful tune of his, entitled ' Canandaigua,' and adapted to the 
favorite words by Tom Moore — 

* Come, ye disconsolate, where e'er ye langiiish, 
Come to the mercy-seat, fenently kneel I 
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish. 
Earth hath no sorrow that heaven cannot heal,' 

has a place in the Jubilee, and will, we doubt not, be thought worthy of 
reproduction in future musical collections. 

"As a business man, Mr. Whitney was never really fortunate, and at the 
time of his death we regret to say his affairs were far from being in a pros- 
perous condition. He leaves a young wife, and, if we mistake not, a son 
and two or three daughters. His second son, a soldier of one of our regi- 
ments of regulars, was killed on the bloody field of Gettysburg, just four 
years ago." 

From another paper, printed in Detroit about the same date, we learn 
that " he held the position of postmaster at Canandaigua, under President 
Tyler." 

" Mr. Whitney was an Episcopalian, and was organist and a member of 
the vestr\' of St. Paul's Church for the last ten j-ears of his first residence 
in Detroit." 

" Politically and socially, Mr. Whitney was a man of moderate and liberal 
views, and during the later political revulsions has classed himself as a conser- 
vative, not having attached himself to either party. Although naturally 
industrious, his generosity and warm-heartedness stood in the waj' of his 
accumulating property. He continued his active editorial labors up to 
about a week ago, although suffering for a long time previous from failing 
health. His demise, however, was sudden and unexpected, and the fact 
shows how far a naturally robust constitution may become exhausted and 
destroyed by mental labor before the impending crisis gives warning of its 
approach. Mr. Whitney had been for some time engaged in preparing 
matter designed to compose the initial number of a work to be entitled the 
Michigan Qnartirly Register." j 

" His funeral was attended at St. Paul's Church yesterday afternoon, and 
his remains taken thence to Canandaigua."

official positions, discharged his duties to the entire acceptance of the 
public. He was appointed, in 1S62, to a clerkship in the Comptroller's 
office in Albany, a position for which he was eminently qualified ; and 
there he labored, as few could or would labor. It is acknowledged by all 
that his application to business and extra duty faithfully done, were the 
cause of his illness and subsequent death. For nine months before his 
death he was confined to his room, and suffered severely; yet his confi- 
dence in an early-sought and long-trusted Redeemer never wavered."
