According to her obituary, Clarissa Ingersoll Whitney was born in Cattaraugus County NY (in 1819) and married Lucius Whitney in 1835; she died at Sandy Creek in Oswego County in 1883. The only other clue that I have as to her parents is a photograph of her brother, Thomas Ingersoll. I suspet that this Thomas Ingersoll might be Thomas Dewey Ingersoll who died in North Volney in 1885 -- because of the location and dates -- but I have no other evidence. Does anyone else have a photograph of Thos. D. Ingersoll for comparison?
