History of the Descendants of John Whitman of Weymouth, Mass

by Charles Farnam 1889

John the second son of the Ancestor, was provided for by his father in what is now the south parish in Weymouth. He was settled there on a farm by the side of a large pond, which from him took and still retains the name of Whitman's Pond. He married, Oct. 19, 1662, Ruth (probably dau. of William) Reed. She died without issue in 1662, and he then married Abigail Hollis and by her had five children. The Weymouth records give the date of his death as Feb. 1, 1713. It has been impossible to find either in Sufi'olk or Plymouth records any mention of his will or of the administration upon his estates. Judge Whitman states that it is not known when he died, and that he left his homestead to his eldest son John.
