Marriage*14 November 1706He married as her first husband Margery Pepperell, daughter of William Pepperell and Margery Bray, on 14 November 1706 in Kittery Point, York County, Maine.2,4,5
Occupation*Pelatiah Whittemore was a gentleman and merchant in Charlestown.2
Dummer's War*between 18 September 1722 and 15 October 1722He served in what came to be called Dummer's War, a series of skirmishes and raids in New England between British and French colonial forces, as a centinel between 18 September 1722 and 15 October 17222
Dummer's Warbetween 16 October 1722 and 14 November 1722 And he served as a sergeant between 16 October 1722 and 14 November 1722. His company was under the command of Colonel Shadrack Walton of New Castle, New Hampshire.2
Biographical Info*31 December 1723Pelatiah was a brilliant young man who married into the leading family of Maine, and very early in life became an officer in the Army. He was the first Whittemore to be termed a "gentleman", and had every prospect of an eminently successful career. Instead, the records show that what happened is just one more instance of a promising life ruined by excessive drinking. In Pelatiah's case, it forced his lovely wife to leave him, taking their children and returning to her family in Kittery Point, Maine. The unfortunate Pelatiah remained in Boston where the court records show many lawsuits for debt against him. From a "gentleman" and "merchant", his last court case, on 31 December 1723, called him an "accountant", and he was sent to debtor's prison on complaint of a tavern-keeper.2
Death*21 October 1724He died on 21 October 1724 in Charlestown at age 44.2,6

Samuel Whittemore1

b. 6 August 1717, d. after 1760
Father*Daniel Whittemore1 b. 17 May 1691, d. 1757
Mother*Mary Turell1 b. 26 Jan 1696
Birth*6 August 1717Samuel Whittemore was born on 6 August 1717 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1
(Grandson) Will21 February 1728Samuel Whittemore and his brother Daniel were named as beneficiaries in the will of their grandfather, Samuel Turell, dated 21 February 1728 in Boston. His will gave each of the boys two hundred pounds and no more, having already been at considerable charge for their maintenance and education; and in the case that either of them were to die in his minority, then the survivor was to have the whole sum of four hundred pounds, to be paid as they, respectively, attained full age. The Reverend Ebenezer Turell, the boys' uncle, was appointed Executor of their grandfather's estate and was bonded for £3000.1
Religion*1740 In 1740, Samuel was a communicant of the Brattle Square Church, Boston.2
Marriage*24 April 1740He married first Rebecca Stearns, daughter of Samuel Stearns and Phebe Waite, on 24 April 1740 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).2
(Husband) Deathbefore 1753Samuel became a widower when Rebecca (Stearns) Whittemore died before 1753.2
Marriage*30 August 1753He married second Elizabeth Lose of Bergen County, New Jersey on 30 August 1753 in New Jersey.2
Research Notes* The Whittemore Family in America source noted they were, of necessity, rather vague about Samuel. Soon after receiving the legacy of £200 from his grandfather's estate, he married, but had no children of record. The Whittemore researchers found no proof it was this Samuel who went to New Jersey after losing his first wife, there to remarry and raise a family. However, inasmuch as his elder brother had removed from Boston southward -- and been successful in so doing -- plus the fact that he was the only Samuel in the family then of marriageable age not positively accounted for, made them feel quite sure it was he.2
Death*after 1760He died after 1760 in Essex County, New Jersey.2

Marriage*between 1690 and 1693He married Mary (__?__) Pease between 1690 and 1693.1
Research Notes* The Whittemore Family in America source provides clarification regarding the confusion created by past researchers in accurately determining Thomas' children, writing "the main reason for this was simply a misreading of the Cambridge and Lexington vital records. Another reason was that there lived at the same time in Cambridge Farms (Lexington) a Thomas Whitmore, who also had a wife Mary. That Thomas was a son of Francis Whitmore of Cambridge, the progenitor of the Whitmore family in this country. It is the offspring of this Thomas Whitmore who were thought by earlier genealogists to be the children of Thomas and Mary (Pease) Whittemore of Cambridge and Watertown. It must be understood that the Whitmores are not connected with the Whittemores in any way in America. The connection, being way back in old England, does not concern us in this genealogy. Our Thomas (Whittemore) and Mary had only one child."

Thomas Whitemore and Mary, his wife, removed to Killingly, Connecticut in 1709, where he became one of the original proprietors of that town. All of his children went there with him, including his son, Samuel, wrongly supposed to have been a Whittemore, and to have married Peternell Mitchell in Malden, Massachusetts."1
Guardianship24 December 1694 After their father died on 8 Dec 1694, the probate court, on 24 December 1694, appointed Thomas guardian for his three-year-old brother, Daniel Whittemore.1
Death*10 August 1717He died on 10 August 1717 in Cambridge at age 521,2
Burial* and was buried in the Old Burying Ground. His gravestone noted his age as 52 years, 10 months and 10 days.1
