Generation No. 1

1. CALEB WHITING was born August 19, 1729 in Weston, Massachusetts, and died September 6, 1819 in Douglas, Massachusetts; bur. Douglas Center Cemetery, Douglas. He married (1) HANNAH FAIRBANKS December 18, 1753 in Douglas, Massachusetts, daughter of JONATHAN FAIRBANKS and HANNAH COOLIDGE. She was born July 3, 1731, and died August 21, 1759. He married (2) HANNAH SIBLEY-SOUTHWORTH March 20, 1760 in Douglas, Massachusetts, daughter of JOHN SIBLEY and HANNAH MARSH. She was born June 13, 1732 in Sutton, Massachusetts, and died July 2, 1819, Douglas, Massachusetts. Hannah Sibley married, first, September 17, 1753, Stephen Southworth, b. January 12, 1731, Freetown, Massachusetts, and d. bef. 1760. They had two sons, Stephen and Solomon.

Caleb's will dated January 24, 1816, probated at Douglas November 23, 1819, calls himself "yeoman" and names son-in-law Joshua Fairbanks executor, and names his wife, his children and/or their heirs as recipients of his estate (case #64568). In a document, dated June 1, 1852, to appoint an administrator of the remaining estate of Caleb Whiting "The said executor [Joshua Fairbanks] died about the year 1825 and the said David is now living and has a family consisting of himself & wife who are now in precipitous circumstances & have become chargeable to the town of Douglas." Abner Whiting was made trustee of the estate. On December 31, 1852, the real estate was appraised at $1,430.00 and was "sold at public auction April 9, 1853 and struck off to Horace L. Whiting, he being the highest bidder." See Vital Records of Douglas, Mass.

Also of interest is the case of Whiting v. Whiting in Reports of Cases Argued and Determined in the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts (pages. 236-242) to determine the validity of claims  by Frederick Whiting, eldest son of David, pertaining to Caleb's will.

A Stephen Southworth was one of three witnesses listed when Caleb made his Last Will and Testament in 1816. This is likely Hannah's son from her first marriage.

His general duty was the protection of communication lines and railroads moving supplies to the troops.

While serving in the military, Mason was the victim of severe food poisoning, a major contributor to deaths in the Civil War due to a lack of refrigeration. He was last paid on April 30, 1865, in the amount of $36.95 for clothing and $8.40 for transportation from San Antonio, Texas. It was determined that food poising contributed to his blindness 21 years later. For his disability, Mason received a pension of $8.00 per month.

After the Civil War, Mason and his wife, Almira, farmed near St. Marie, Wisconsin, and he held several positions in county government, as county treasurer, on the county board of supervisors and as the head of the St. Marie Cemetery. Mason was the first of his family to visit Dakota Territory and western Minnesota. The Princeton Republic newspaper stated that Mason Whiting left on a six-week trip to Dakota Territory on April 10, 1868. That was 40 years before his son, Bertine, homesteaded in South Dakota.

Above, left, is Mason and Almira (Rice) Whiting.

21. AMOS WHITING was born March 25, 1824 in Douglas, Worcester, Massachusetts, and died June 13, 1895 in De Smet, Kingsbury, South Dakota; buried De Smet, South Dakota. He married ALZINA ATWOOD April 17, 1851 in Waupun, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, daughter of ISAAC ATWOOD and BETSEY FARR. She was born July 9, 1829 in Brandon, Rutland, Vermont, and died March 15, 1915 in De Smet, South Dakota; buried De Smet, South Dakota.

In 1843 Amos settled in Rock County, Wisconsin Territory, where he divided his time between farming and teaching. After a few years he moved to Waupun, Wisconsin, where he was employed in a store, and where he met Alzina Atwood.

He was among the first settlers of Trempealeau county, when, in 1855, he moved there with his family and planted a large orchard in the southern part of the county. "History of Trempealeau County Wisconsin, 1917" (Chapter 23, The Orchard and its Advancements) states that in an article, written in 1870, Amos Whiting was among those who had an apple orchard that was doing well.

Seba Atwood, an uncle of Alzina (Atwood) Whiting, was also among the first settlers of the county. The first schoolhouse on what was known as West Prairie was built under the inspiration of Amos Whiting. The first teacher was Lucy Atwood, a sister of Alzina.

In 1863, under the direction of Amos Whiting and I. D. Carhart, a cemetery was laid out on the corner of the Carhart farm near the first schoolhouse (later called the Greenwood Cemetery). The first burial was that of the young daughter of Amos and Alzina.

The first schoolhouse was soon succeeded by a better one a little farther west on the corner of the Whiting farm, where still later a new brick structure was constructed. It was for many years known as the "Whiting" school and later sometimes called the "Carhart" school, but more definitely known as the "West Prairie" school. In this schoolhouse a non-sectarian Sunday School was maintained, beginning in 1858 and continuing for many years, winter and summer. Amos Whiting was credited for encouraging lyceums, Sunday schools, and clean amusements. He was Superintendent of Schools, Trempealeau County, from 1870-1874 and 1876-1878.

In the spring of 1879, Amos searched out new prospects in Dakota Territory. Kingsbury County was just being organized and he sought a home close to the center of the proposed county, being the first person to enter a filing in township 111 of range 55. He went back to Wisconsin, sold out his property there and the next spring moved with his family to his homestead in Dakota Territory, in what was later to become Kingsbury County, South Dakota. While back in Wisconsin, and before his return to Dakota, Amos penned an article for the Winona Daily Republican entitled "The Attractions of Dakota" in which he described Kingsbury County from his experience, having spent the previous summer there.

At a meeting held March 9, 1880, at the homestead of Amos Whiting for the purpose of organizing the county, in the newly formed state of South Dakota, Amos was appointed Superintendent (of schools) and H. A. Whiting (Herbert) was appointed Coroner, to serve until their successors had been elected and qualified. The minutes of the meeting were certified by W. E. Whiting (Wilton) as County Clerk. C. P. Ingalls (Charles P. Ingalls, Pa Ingalls of the Little House books and father of Laura Ingalls Wilder) was appointed Constable.

Laura Ingalls Wilder and Education in Kingsbury County, 1880-1885 **(12 pages), by Nancy Cleaveland, covers the tenure of Amos Whiting as Superintendent of Schools in Kingsbury County, confirms that his sons Herbert A. and Louis E. Whiting received teaching certificates, and son Wilton was Register of Deeds and married Hettie Hilton, both being in the newspaper business. However, she gives Amos Whiting's birth place as Vermont; the tribute to Amos by one of his sons gives it at Douglas, Massachusetts, and all census records indicate Massachusetts. His wife, Alzina (Atwood) Whiting, was born in Vermont.  ** This website has been taken down temporarily in order to update it.

The De Smet Leader, November 22, 1884.
The Kingsbury County Historical Society will hold a public meeting Tuesday evening, Nov. 25, at the Congregational church in De Smet. The program, given in nine numbers, included: Epitome of the History of Kingsbury County by Townships, by Amos Whiting, curator of historical department, "Reception of contributions to the library of the society", and "Report of committee on course of lectures for the winter."

Amos Whiting was eulogized in a tribute to him written by one of his sons. The second paragraph of the tribute states,
". . . who living with him for forty-three years, . . ." Since Louis was born in 1852, which is 43 years prior to the death of his father, Amos, it seems likely that Louis wrote the tribute.

The question remains as to what the occasion was that the tribute was written. The tribute starts by stating, "Twenty seven years ago today when he was with us and we celebrated his last birthday on earth, . . ." Amos died June 13, 1895 and his birthday was March 25, so the tribute was probably written March 25, 1922. It may be coincidence, but Judge Charles S. Whiting died March 25, 1922. (Louis E. Whiting and Charles S. Whiting were second cousins.) It may be that Louis reminisced about his father upon hearing the news of the death of Judge Whiting and wrote the tribute to his father.

Children of AMOS WHITING and ALZINA ATWOOD are:
i. LOUIS EUGENE WHITING (46), b. February 25, 1852, Wisconsin; d. March 31, 1925, De Smet, South Dakota; buried at De Smet, South Dakota.

Hettie was the widow of James H. Hilton whom she had married December 26, 1879, in Dodge County, Minnesota; her maiden name was Hettie M. Davis.  They homesteaded south of Erwin.
At right is Lettie and the daughter of Wilton & Lettie, name unknown.
The Masonic Lodge of De Smet Masons met on December 10, 1883, in the hall over the News printing office in De Smet to organize under dispensation from the grand lodge. Included as one of the first officers was W. E. Whiting as Senior Warden. Charter was granted the lodge June 12, 1884.
The De Smet Leader, November 8, 1884: The Kingsbury County News comes out under a new ownership, Mrs. L. M. Hilton taking the place of W. J. Barnes. Whiting and Hilton is the new firm.
The De Smet Leader, November 15, 1884: W. E. Whiting takes the editorial helm of The News this week.
An interesting web site covers the Hopp brothers, pioneer newspaper publishers in De Smet, and mentions Will Whiting and Lettie Hilton.

Wilton E. Whiting was listed in the 1891 St. Paul City Directory as a printer at West Publishing Co. and later, in the Helena City Directory, at the Helena Herald, Helena, MT.  He moved to Omaha, NE, in 1900.  The Census for Omaha, enumerated June 4, 1900, listed him as divorced.  He married Annie Donnelly December 16, 1903, in St. Paul, MN, and by 1905 they were in Aberdeen, SD, where Wilton continued in the printing business.  He died May 2, 1928, in Aberdeen.
iii. IDA M. WHITING, b. Abt. 1854; d. 1862, buried in the "Carhart" Cemetery west of the village of Trempealeau, Trempealeau Co., Wisconsin. The cemetery was founded in 1862 on the Isaac Carhart farm and Ida's was the first burial. Ida was listed in the 1860 Wisconsin census as being 6 years old, the same age as Wilton, and therefore likely a twin of Wilton. At left is a photo of Ida's grave marker, taken in the fall of 2005. At right is a view of the cemetery; Ida's is the slanting marker nearest the tree.

The 1910 census lists two Eugene L. Whitings in South Dakota. On one, he is included in the household of his father, Louis E. Whiting (see number 44 above). The second listing is for Faulk County, Seneca village, South Dakota, and his occupation is listed as Engineer. All other information, including age, marital status and birthplace of self, father, and mother, is the same. It seems likely that the two are the same person. He may have been working in Faulk County temporarily at the time and inadvertently included in both places.

I have not been able to located Eugene L. Whiting in any 1920 census. However, I did find a World War I Draft Registration Card for him, dated Sept. 17, 1918. His residence is listed as 18 Villard, Dickinson, Stark, N. Dak., and his occupation is listed as a mechanic at the Ford Service Station. His nearest relative is listed as Louis Eugene Whiting, father, De Smet, Kingsbury, S. Dak.

The baptismal record for Eugene Whiting shows that he was baptized April 24, 1922, at St. John's Episcopal Church, Dickinson, by The Rev. Alex Coffin. Ruth Whiting and Mrs. H. Robinson were listed as sponsors. The records of St. John's also show that Ruth Lyttle was confirmed by Bishop Cameron Mann on November 9, 1913, 25th Sunday after Trinity, presented by The Rev. G. Bragaw. The records of the church lists the name with two Ts (ie., Lyttle).
