Dr. Stillman S. Whitney 1849-1886 attended the Homeopathic School of Medicine in Boston, abd sadly died at age 36 in MA. He and Mary had no children. We found Mary in the 1902 Directory, but were unable to find any info about her after this fact:
Mary E Whitney in the U.S. City Directories 1822-1995
Residence Year: 1902

We have also been looking for Mary Danagh before her marriage to Stillman Whitney, but to no avail. We have found her listed as Mary Darrah, Mary Darah, Mary Danah, and Mary Dannah. Her parents are listed in records as John & Elizabeth Berran, Bevan, Buran, and Burran, with both listed as born in Ireland. We did finally find a census record stating her marriage to Stillman Whitney was her second, therefore her surname is different than her parents. her marriage record states she was born In Swampscott, Massachusetts. The surname Danagh can also be also seen in overall genealogy records as McDanagh. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.

This beautiful old Whitney piece will be sent in a new clean archival rigid sleeve for your collection. This was a personal calling card for Dr and Mrs SS Whitney, and is one of a kind.
