There are just three Abner WHITNEY entries in the 1790 census:

Whitney, Abner MA Worcester Co. Lancaster Town p. 224/321
Whitney, Abner MA Worcester Co. Westminster Town p. 243/663
[Abner-6, Samuel-5, William-4, Nathaniel-3, John-2, John-1]
Whitney, Abner NH Cheshire Co. Claremont p. 014 3-3-3-0-0
[Abner-5, Jonas-4, Eleazer-3, Thomas-2, John-1]

I am aware of only four Abner WHITNEY men old enough to be listed,
the other two
being your Abner-5 WHITNEY [John-4, Isaiah-3, Thomas-2, John-1]
(1734-1802) and his
son Abner-6 WHITNEY (1755-bef.1810). I suppose that the last was
already in NC by
1790, so perhaps the Abner WHITNEY in Lancaster, above, is the one you seek.
