American Revolutionary War Patriot
EbenezerWhiting (1761-1836) is stated in his 1818 pension record (#7107, Kinderhook, New York) states that he served as a private in the regiment commanded by Colonel Ward of Massachusetts for one year.
He is believed to be buried in Racine County. The Wisconsin Historical Society lists Whiting to have died at age 75 in Racine in 1836. The SAR Graves Register states Whiting was buried in the Root River Cemetery. The old cemetery, which was near the lakefront, may have been washed away. A bronze "In Memory Of" marker has been placed in the Racine Mound Cemetery in tribute to Ebenezer.
A Wisconsin Historic Marker to Whiting and three other patriots is located near the Mound Cemetery entrance.
