BIO from Whitney gen at wiki: "Dr. Stillman S. Whitney (Father: Samuel Stillman, George, Jason, Mark, Benjamin, John), son of Samuel Stillman and Sarah Wilder Whitney was born 4 Aug 1849 in Dedham, MA. He died 6 Nov 1886 in Dedham, MA, aged 36 years. He married 16 Sep 1884, Boston, MA, Mary E. Danagh (Mary Danagh), daughter of John & Elizabeth Bevan Danagh. She was born about 1852, Swampscott, MA. The only son of the late Dr. Whitney and Sarah Whitney was born in Dedham, 4 Aug 1849. After graduating from the Dedham high school he spent a short time in active business, but decided to follow the profession of his father, and took up the medical profession, graduating from the "Homeopathic School of Medicine," in Boston, MA. He possessed the same intuitive faculty of grasping the cause of disease, and of the methods to be employed to restore health as his father. He settled in Allston, MA, a suburb of Boston, and established a good practice. But after three years his health failed, and he died. He resided Dedham, MA. Stillman S. and Mary E. (Danagh) Whitney had no children."

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
