Sarah3 Whitney (Joshua2, John1), daughter of Joshua2 and Abigail (Tarbell) Whitney, was born about 1686, Groton, MA, and died after 29 Sep 1730, and possibly after 15 Oct 1751, exact date and place unknown.

He was half-brother of Samuel Shepard who married Sarah's sister Eleanor, and brother of Hannah Jewell who married Daniel Lawrence (Ruth3 Whitney, John2, John1).
