Jared6 Whitney (Jared5, John4, Richard3, John2, Henry1), son of Jared5 and Sally (Rogers) Whitney, was born 2 Jun 1798, Branford, CT,[1] was baptized 29 Jul 1798, Branford, CT,[2] and died 25 Sep 1832, Potomac Creek, VA.

He married, Georgetown, DC, Mary Pickerall, daughter of Samuel and Catharine (Jenkins) Pickerall. She was born in Charles County, MD, and died 7 Jan 1866, Cannonsburgh, PA. She was buried in Cannonsburgh, PA.

Phoenix says the following:

"Jared Whitney, b. at Branford, Conn., 2 June 1798; bap. at Branford, 29 July 1798; married in Georgetown, D. C., Mary Pickerall, dau. of Samuel and Catharine (Jenkins) Pickerall, of Charles Co., Md., where she was born. They lived at Washington and Georgetown, D. C., and finally settled on Potomac Creek, Va., where he died 25 Sept. 1832, and was buried in the Methodist Episcopal Cemetery in Georgetown. She died, 7 Jan. 1866, at Cannonsburgh, Penn., and was buried there. She suffered for twenty years from inflammatory rheumatism, yet was never heard to complain, or murmur at her lot; and Dr. Riddle, president of Jefferson College, at her funeral, said, "her family ought to thank God for sparing such a saint so long, to teach them, by her bright example and glorious death, the power of the Gospel to sustain and comfort its followers under such adverse circumstances."

The following notice of his death appeared in a Georgetown newspaper: "DIED.--On Tuesday last, at his residence on Potomac Creek, Mr. Jared Whitney, a native of New England, but for many years past a resident of this city, from whence he had very recently removed to his late residence, where, by his unceasing industry and the suavity of his manners, he was rendering his condition peculiarly enviable. The loss of such an individual, possessed of such endearing qualities, will long be a serious subject of regret, not only to the large family which he has left, and to his numerous relatives and friends, but to all who knew him intimately, as did the writer of this small tribute to his inestimable worth.""
