James Whitaker is almost wholly absent from the historical record. The son of the prominent Presbyterian minister Nathaniel Whitaker, James attended Moor's Indian Charity School for at least a short time during 1767 while schooling was unavailable in Norwich, CT. He appears in two short comments on the state of the Whitaker family during Nathaniel's absence.
