WHITING, NATHANIEL (?–?). Nathaniel Whiting was a partner of Nathan Osborn as one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred families. On July 24, 1824, the pair received title to a league of land on the west bank of the Colorado River in what is now southern Colorado County. The census of 1826 classified Whiting as a farmer and stock raiser and a single man aged between twenty-five and forty.
