Thomas Whitmore
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1615, England
Death: Dec. 11, 1681
Middlesex County
Connecticut, USA

Son of John Whitmore, probably from the village of Whitmore in Staffordshire. His father, having buried Thomas's mother in England, immigrated with four of his five children to the Massachuchetts Bay region about 1630.

His father later married the widow of John Jessup of Wethersfield, Connecticut. Her name was Hannah [Johanna]; however, they had no children together.

The children of John and his first wife were [some dates are approx.]: Thomas 1615-1681, Anne 1621-1660, Mary 1623-1684 and Francis 1625-1685.

Thomas married (1) Sarah Hall, 11 December 1645 at Hartford, Hartford, Conn. (2) Mary Platt, [widow of Luke Atkinson] 3 January 1666 at Middletown, Middlesex, Conn. (3) Katherine Leete, [widow of Samuel Roberts] 8 October 1673 at Middletown, Middlesex, Conn.

Thomas and his 2nd wife, Mary Platt, had one son - Josiah, born 29 March 1668; and this is their only daughter:

MEHITABLE ; she married Andrew Bacon.

This is concluded because MOST records list Mehitable Whitmore (Wetmore) as a daughter of Thomas Whitmore and Mary Platt; plus, the Mehitable linked ABOVE was born on the day Mary Platt died, both at Middletown, and both buried at this cemetery.
