Joseph Whiting 1861-1861

Parents:      Henry Whiting and Mary Scott (1)

Born:           17th February 1861 in Burton End, Haverhill. (1,2)       

Baptised:   10th March 1861 at St Mary's Parish Church, Haverhill.(1)                   

Married:      None.     

Children:    None.

Died:           September 1861. Buried at Haverhill Cemetery on 29th September 1861.(3,4)

 
Bio:              Joseph is present as an infant living with his family in Burton End on the 1861 census. He doesn't appear on further censuses, and I am certain that he died in childbirth. Although the census puts his age at six months, and contradicts the baptism record, I think he is the Joseph who died in Burton End in September 1861(3,4) although the age of the child who died is placed at 10 months. An alternative would be the Joseph Whiting who died in 1865 aged 3 years (5,6), although there are discrepancies in age here too.
