Hill, daughter of Alvin and Louise Hill, and they had three children: L. G. Ray, Ethel V. and Hortense M. In 1861 Mr. Whiting engaged in business in Boston, in which he continued for twelve years, when he traded his stock for a farm and went to shipping cows and other stock. At the breaking out of the war he was appointed Republican enrollment commissioner. He has served as postmaster at Boston under two administrations; has been captain in two regiments of the National Guard, 67th Regiment, and was captain of Co. E; also captain in the 28th Regiment. He was notary public for thirty consecutive years and is now justice of the peace. Mr. Whiting has served the people of his county in various positions with uniform satisfaction to the people and credit to himself.
