Regarding Nathan Whiting, one of the Patriot War participants, from Scott Nelson - January, 2004 (write me for last known e-mail address - wrote again in 2008) - . Scott writes:

I am related to Nathan Whiting. I have been working on my family genealogy for about 5 years and have been trying to find proof of the Whiting connection. I have traced my genealogy from my self up to Nathan Whiting Jr. who was born between 1826 and 1828. I have not been able to find much on this Nathan son of Nathan Sr. and Rhoda Toles. I have been trying to dig up a marriage record or anything to link my Nathan with that Nathan Sr.

The Younger Nathan was married to a woman named Harriet Adeline (last name unknown) both born in New York. The must have been married about 1846 or 1847. They migrated to Michigan and are first seen on the 1850 Michigan census for Calhoun county which lists Nathan:

Calhoun County, Mi 1850

Nathan Whiting Head of household age 24 Farmer Born in New York b.1826

Harriet A. Whiting age 22 Born in New York b. 1828

Harriet A. Whiting age 3 Born in New York b. 1847

Would you happen to have any information on This Nathan son of Nathan and Rhoda (Toles) Whiting?

If anyone can help Scott, please write the webhost for his last-known address. (2008) Thank you.
