Susan Manurva Whitney was Isaac Marion Whitney's sister. She is
thought to have died of smallpox.
The war years of 1862-1863 were particularly hard for the Baker
Family. Elizabeth A. Baker Whitney's mother, Martha Ann Jones
Baker, died during that time frame, as well as her three brothers:
Alford Newton Baker, Francis Fuller Baker and Thomas Hilmon
Baker. The Walker County property of her father, Francis Richard
Baker, also was burned out by Union soldiers in 1862-1863.
The youngest Whitney children, Yula Linor and William, are thought to
have died in the Cholera epidemic of 1873.
