He was born in Stow, Mass., where his ancestors had been among the earliest settlers. His marriage was solemnized in Harvard, in which town her parents resided, and is one of the first to be found on the record of marriages. Soon after his marriage he moved to a farm in Hampshire county and in the will of a relative he is referred to as "Joseph WHITNEY, of Roadstown, Hampshire Co."
