About Rev. John Whiting

Families of Ancient New Haven by Donald Lines Jacobus, pg. 1971

The son of William & Susannah Whiting, he married (1) Sybil Collins, daughter of Deacon Edward Collins of Cambridge, Mass. They were the parents of seven children. In 1673, he married (2) Phebe Gregson, daughter of Thomas & Jane Gregson (she married Rev. Russell after his death). He was a graduate of Harvard College in 1653 and preached in Salem in Mass. Bay Colony for many years. He moved from there with his family and was ordained in 1660 at the First Church of Hartford where he was pastor for ten years serving with his successor, Rev. Haynes the last four years. In 1670, thirty-two members broke away from the First Church of Hartford and formed the Second Church due to disagreement ovr the doctrine of half-way covenant which lowered the terms of admission to the church. Rev. John Whiting was chosen pastor of the Second Church and remained in that position until his death. He was named on a list of freemen on the south side of Hartford in 1669.

The exact place of his burial is unknown, but he is probably buried in the Ancient Cemetery of the First Church of Hartford.
