He married, circa 1783, Norwalk, CT, Grace Fairweather, supposedly daughter of Joseph and Polly (-----) Fairweather. She was born about 1766.

The definitive article, John B. Carney, "In Search of Fayerweather: The Fayerweather Family of Boston," New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 144 (1990):3 et seq., fails to mention either a Grace Fayerweather, or a Joseph Fayerweather with a wife Polly.
While researching The Whitney family of Connecticut, David Williams Patterson collected information on this Whitney family.
