Willliam and Myra were twins. The reason the name Gaines shows up is because William Wallace Whitney's mother Myra Davis Clark married their father William Wallace Whitney, and after he died in 1837 she married Gen. Edmund Pendleton Gaines, and so sometimes her two children went by Gaines and sometimes by Whitney, but by birth they were Whitneys.
