Home Notes (Jonas is most likely a misspelling)
Jonas H. Whitney died at the Home Hospital Thursday evening, aged 81 years. He was admitted to the Home from Fremont, Dodge County, Aug. 9, 1892. He served in the civil war by enlisting from Pike County, Ill., as first sargeant in Company F, Ninety-ninth Illinois, August 2, 1862, and was discharged at Konnersville, La., as first sargeant, Jan. 24, 1865, having served for two years and five months. Mr. Whitney was a native of Vermont. The remains were this morning taken to the morgue at Grand Island to be prepared for shipment to the place of burial, which his friends may choose, probably to Fremont.
Grand Island Daily Independent Monday 12 August 1907
Mrs. Woodruff, daughter of Jonas Whitney, of Joliet, Ill, arrived at the Home Saturday afternoon, the funeral of Mr. Whitney took place at Grand Island. The telegram for his daughter was delayed in delivery and the train was two hours late at Omaha, so she arrived too late for her father's funeral.
