      WHITING Direct Line Ancestors of Annabell Marion Brown Wright
      JEREMIAH B. WHITING Jeremiah B. Whiting was born about 1771 in Sharon, MA. He married Ruth Sweet June 25, 1797 in New Bedford, Briston, MA. Ruth Sweet was born about 1778. She was the daughter of Silas Sweet and Mary Blackman. Soon after the wedding they moved to Bradford, Vermont and in 1807, they moved to Northern New York. Dr Whiting practiced medicine in Vermont, Onondaga and Cayuga Counties in New York and then moved to Michigan. In the 1850 census, which was taken shortly before his death, he was listed in the home of his daughter Thalis (Whiting) Snyder, in Calhoun county, Michigan. From "A History of Bradford, Vermont", by Rev Silas McKeen, pages 396-7: "Dr. Whiting practiced medicine in Bradford for a few years. He resided in the part of town called Goshen. He had a good preparatory education and was well-read in his professional studies. He distinguished himself somewhat in his judicious treatment of scarlett fever which prevailed at one time during his practice in Bradford." The following is from "The History of Cayuga County 1789-1879 page 462 Town of Moravia" ....... Jeremiah B. Whiting joined the County Medical Society February 2, 1826, and practiced in the north part of the town till 1832, when he removed to Michigan. He was from Dutchess county. ........ "Northern New York" must refer to Spafford in Onondaga County; the book Onondaga or Reminiscences of Earlier and Later Times, by Joshua V. H. Clark, A.M., Stoddard and Babcock, Syracuse, 1849, pp. 348 - 352, lists Dr Jeremiah B Whiting as one of the first Doctors in Spafford. And the Centennial History of Spafford tells us that Dr Jeremiah Bumpus Whiting settled in Borodino, then called Child's Corners, about 1802. He continued to practice medicine and clear up and manage a new farm until 1819, when he removed to Sempronius in Cayuga County and afterwards went to Michigan, where he died. He was a good classical and medical scholar and was the best skilled in the use of American indigenous remedies of any of our early physicians. The History of Onondaga also notes that Dr. Jonathan Kneeland of Marcellus was a precocious youth and at age eleven (1823) became a student of medicine under Dr. Jeremiah Bumpus Whiting of Sempronius, Cayuga County. The Kneeland genealogy (Seven centuries in the Kneeland family) tells us that Jonathan "was appenticed to learn the art of healing to Jeremiah Bumpus Whiting of Sempronius. Bumpus was a college graduate and he agreed to reward Kneeland for faithful services in ten years, with a horse and saddle bags. This delightful experience and prospect was rudely ended by the relapse of the learned Whiting to his old but relinquished habit of quaffing the flowing bowl". The History of Cayuga County notes that Jeremiah B. Whiting joined the County Medical Society on 2 February 1826 and practiced in the north part of the town of Moravia until 1832, when he removed to Michigan. This history states that he was from Dutchess County. Children of Jeremiah Whiting and Ruth Sweet are: 1. Jeremiah B.
