    Class of 1653. Genealogical excerpts from his profile:
    Rev. John Whiting, M. A., of Hartford, second son of William Whiting, a wealthy merchant, who was Assistant and Treasurer of the Colony of Connecticut, was probably born in England, a short time before his father and mother, Susanna, came to America; though it may have been afterward, if Goodwin be correct in saying he was born in 1635. His connection with the College, during which some of his bills were paid by "m' hopkines," "bro vsher," and "m' lake," continued a year after he took the degree of Bachelor of Arts. About that time he married Sybil, born in England, sister of John Collins, H. U. 1649, ^^^ daughter of Deacon Edward Collins, of Cambridge, and soon afterward with his wife joined the church, probably continuing to reside at Cambridge, where two or three of his children were baptized.
    Whiting was twice married. By his first wife, already mentioned, he had seven children, of whom Abigail, born in 1666, married the Reverend Samuel Russell, of Deerfield, Massachusetts, and of Branford, Connecticut, H. U. 1 68 1. His second wife, whom he married in 1673, Phebe Gregson, born 15 October, 1643, daughter of Thomas Gregson, who was lost in the Phantom ship. She also had seven children. Subsequently she became the third wife of the Reverend John Russell, of Hadley, H. U. 1645, surviving whom she went to live with her son Joseph Whiting, at New Haven, where she died 19 September, 1730
