  • Name Joseph WHITING  [1, 2
    • Joseph Whiting was a petitioner to the "Five Mile River" petition dated the second Thursday of October 1736. This petition was for the creation of a new religious society separating itself from the one in Stamford. This new society eventually became Middlesex Parish and in 1820 the town of Darien, Fairfield County, Connecticut.

      He was active in the Middlesex Society's affairs and was one of a committee appointed on 20 April 1741 to "treat" with Mr. David Hudson at Stratford to come and preach for Middlesex on probation.

      Joseph Whiting's first wife, Abigail, was buried in the Noroton River Cemetery and her gravestone is located just left of his. Joseph and later, Hannah, also were buried there. Joseph and Hannah's gravestones are quite ornately engaved. Their gravestones read,
