      !SOURCE: Email from B. Huckins to Weldon Whipple, 11 Jul 2009. Writes the following:
      You have Edwards Pond on the disconnected list. I assume it is not because his ancestry is unknown but rather as to Whipple in his name. I believe he was likely named for Rev Edwards Whipple #7351 who was the Congregational Minister ordained at Charlton 1804 and junior minister at Shrewsbury MA 1822, the year of his death being four years prior to the birth of Edwards Pond. The Pond family was originally from CT, residing Shrewsbury MA and vicinity around Rev Whipple's time and Emeline Dresser was also born in Charlton.

      The Edwards Pond home is still standing and was the subject of a tv show (2002) about the paranormal events witnessed by the family living there (supposedly being warned by the ghost of Edward not to go up on the roof as he supposedly fell to this death so doing). The Pond family gravestones were located and restored around that time.

      Asa Pond's brother Preston Pond married a Hannah Rice so there may be some Rice connection to the Whipples there also. I'll send you another email on what I can find in that regard. I have also wondered if there might be some connection between Emeline Dresser and Dorothea (Dolly) Dresser both b in Charlton but can find no record of Emeline's ancestry for further research on that.



      !SOURCE: Email from Sandy (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Website, 7 Jan 2010. States that the paranormal events covered in the TV show had more to do with Edwards' brother, Franklin. Edwards' death was actually caused by following from a ladder while fixing a window in the barn, not by a fall from the roof. (See the article about his death in The Worcester Daily Spy, 9 Jan 1888.)
