About Col. Jonathan Wetherbee

Not the same as Jonathan Wetherbee, of Stow

Probably the son of Joseph Wetherbee, Sr. & Elizabeth Wetherbee

That two of his sons had served under him in the 8 months campaign at Cambridge [in 1775]. [MSS 16-929] Conjecture that the two sons are Jonathan and Joseph as sons from 2nd marriage would be too young.


Col. Jonathan Wetherbee (1749-1811) married Abigail Farwell.

Stow VR has his birth record as "(WETHERBE (see Watherbee, Weatherbee, Wetherbee, Wetherby, Whitherby, Witherbee, Witherby)) Jonathan, s. Joseph and Elizabeth, Apr. 22, 1749." <>.
