My gr-grandmother was Alice Ruth Whitney, daughter of Hannah Jane Mills & Nathaniel Stevens Whitney. Alice is related to the Lymans on the maternal line. I know the Lymans, Mills & Whitneys intermarried often. What I am seeking is general information about the family residences & businesses. Our families moved across the border frequently. The Lyman family homestead was in Northhampton but Elisha (gr-granfather of Alice)lived in Montreal from 1815-1828 - Lyman family had a Jewelry business I believe. The Mills were from Tolland, Ma but established in Montreal as bankers. The Whitneys were from Frelighsburg but established in Montreal with dry goods & leather businesses. Check out the McCord Museum site for great photos. Please let me know if you have information related to these families.
