Looking at the 1880 census, there is a Salom Hartinger family in Union, also
your Elizabeth with her husband Peter Lepley, and Charles W with a wife and
young son. Hartinger was born in Ohio as was Elizabeth. In the 1883 history
there is also a James Hartinger who was born in Fairfield Co, Ohio. If your
Clarence died on the way to Iowa, its going to be pretty hard to find a
record of that, but maybe you can check out Fairfield County and see what you
can find. Both James and and Charles W. had sons named Clarence.

I am seeking info on Clarence Whitney b about 1830 who apparently was
married to Elizabeth Hardinger (Hartinger?) who later married Peter Lepley
in 1859, and lived in Hardin Co. Iowa. Clarence was my
g-g-grandfather. Clarence and Elizabeth had a son Charles W. Whitney b
1856 d 1889. Our family tradition speaks vaguely of Clarence Whitney being
killed (perhaps drowned) while emigrating to Iowa, probably with Elizabeth
and infant son Charles W. The Union Township history of Hardin Co. 1883
speaks of Elizabeth marrying Peter Lepley in 1859, so the dates make some
I have not been able to find any record of Clarence Whitney. Can you think
of any sources that would have info about him or about Elizabeth prior to
her 1859 marriage to Peter Lepley? Also, any relationship of Clarence to
any of the several other Whitneys in Hardin Co. about that time?
I'd appreciate any help. I got this e-mail address from the Iowa
Biographies Project web site.
