I got this photo of a Brigadier General and I am trying to figure out who he is. There is writing on the back.....but so hard to read. It seems like the last name is Whitney.....but can’t find that last name in 1890’s-1900 ranks.

Here is a few names and photos that kinda looks like the General in my photo:

William Wherry

Maybe Joseph Wheeler?

Maybe with some luck someone can identify him?

1880 Census shows his occupation to be “Policeman”

1900 Census shows his occupation to be “State Detective”.

1910 Census shows his to be “State Police”.
