Polly, dau. of Mary WHITNEY and Nathaniel GORUM
I have received an EMAIL from the secretary of St. John's Episcopal Church of Stamford, CT. which confirms the 9 DEC 1777 Baptism of Polly, dau. of Mary WHITNEY and Nathaniel GORUM(Ghorum).
This child is a previously unknown child for this family and not mentioned in the Whitney Family of CT. or any other sources.
Mary and Nathaniel(a Loyalist) departed for New Brunswick in 1783 with two daughters Ann (b abt. 1780) and Mary (b. abt. 1782). Charlotte (b. 14 JULY 1785), another dau. was born in New Brunswick. I am Charlotte's 4th great grandson.
