Daniel Whittemore1

b. 17 May 1691, d. 1757
Father*John Whittemore2,3 b. 11 Feb 1638, d. 8 Dec 1694
Mother*Mary Miller2 b. c 1653, d. 28 Aug 1731
Baptism*17 May 1691Daniel Whittemore was baptized on 17 May 1691 in Watertown, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).3
Guardianship*24 December 1694 After their father died on 8 Dec 1694, the probate court appointed, on 24 December 1694, his brother Thomas Whittemore as three-year-old Daniel's guardian.2
King William's War*24 September 1710During the French Wars, called in North America, King William's War, Daniel was on a list of soldiers of Lieutenant Colonel Ballantine's company who returned to Boston after the sinking of the transport ship, Caesar, lost at Port Royal, Nova Scotia Province, Canada, on 24 September 1710.3
Marriage*19 May 1715He married first Mary Turell, daughter of Samuel Turell and Lydia Stoddard, on 19 May 1715 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).4,3
Occupation*He was a joiner, or skilled carpenter, in Boston.3
Biographical Info*Daniel was a shiftless fellow, who would not support his wife and children. In fact, it appears he deserted them only a few years after his marriage. His trip to Nova Scotia as a youth in the army must have given him a great liking for that province, as he turned up there, in Halifax, working as a carpenter many years later, having lost all contact with his sons long since. It was probably a good thing, for they became fine men, whereas Daniel, himself, was the black sheep of the family in that period.3
Death*1757He died in late 1757 in Halifax, Nova Scotia Province, Canada.3
