  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: "Descendants of George Whipple," email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 8 Mar 2008. Gives descendants of "a George Whipple of (prob.) Burrillville, Providence, RI who married Waity Keech of Burrillville, Providence, RI. This George Whipple might be George Washington Whipple {10071}, making Waity Keech his second wife. Ann Scott {10083}, wife of George Washington Whipple, died 13 Jan 1823; the oldest child of George Whipple and Waity Keech was born abt. 1827. Waity Keech was a widow when she married her second husband Caleb Comstock {see below} on September 13, 1844 in Burrillville, Providence, RI. George Washington Whipple {10071} died in Burrillville, Providence, RI on 18 Nov 1842. From 1850-1880 Waity (Keech) Whipple Comstock is enumerated on the censuses of Burrillville, Providence, RI, twice under the surname Whipple, twice under Comstock. Her death is recorded as Waity Whipple. Of course, without proof, it's just speculation, but the dates and location 'fit.'"

      !SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to the Whipple Website, 26 Mar 2002. Norma writes: "The AFT 29 Aug 1793 DOB for Joseph's father George Washington Whipple ... makes me wonder if a miracle occurred, as his mother Sarah Mawney was born Abt. 1735. Maybe somehow a generation was skipped, or there's another Joseph involved. Too many Joseph's, I'm sure."

      !SOURCE: Email from Joanne Lahr-Kreischer to Weldon Whipple, 7 May 2002, clears up his birthdate. She writes: "According to Vital Records of Burrillville, RI, George died 18 Nov 1842 aged 66 years, making his birth c1776, thus eliminating the miraculous birth!"

      !SOURCE: Sarah C. O'Dowd, A Rhode Island Original: Frances Harriet Whipple Green McDougall (Lebanon, N.H.: University Press of New England, c2004), p. 3. Gives marriage 21 April 1804 in Smithfield, Rhode Island. (Marriage date previously entered as 6 Apr 1804.)
