  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: "Descendants of Sarah F. Whipple," email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 15 Feb 2007. Cites/notes the following:
      • Rhode Island Cemeteries Database Index (birth, death, burial)
      • Age: May 17, 1888, 68 yrs. old at death (Source: Rhode Island Vital Records, (Orem, UT: Ancestry, Inc., 2000).)
      • Census: June 03, 1880, Age 60, widow, father b. VT, mother b. MA, living Providence, Providence, RI w/son Oscar F. 32 (book keeper) (Source: 1880 Census, Providence, Providence, RI, 72.)


      !SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 5 May 2010. Notes the following:
      • [The Rhode Island Cemetery] database gives Sarah's {107457} DOB as 3/1/1820 (but doesn't list a maiden name) and Simri Smith's {107456} DOB as September 01, 1819.
      • On the 1860 census Simri and Sarah Smith have a 13-year-old daughter named Isabel (and no Sarah listed). Sarah/Isabel would not be 14 until after the official census date of June 1. The 1850 census is clear that it is Sarah A. J. Smith and not "I."
      • [A remaining] "problem" [is] whether Sarah F. Whipple is Sarah Fuller Whipple or Sarah Fuller who first married a Whipple. It wouldn't be hard for someone to assume that Fuller was her maiden name as she uses Sarah F. in the census records.

      !SOURCE: Email from Patrick Harrison (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 5 May 2010. Notes the following:
      • "I recently found on Ancestry.com a record verifying the marriage of Simri Smith to Sarah Fuller Whipple on 28 Sep 1845 in Rhode Island by a Rev. William S Balch. New York, Marriage Newspaper Extract, 1801-1880 (Barber Collection)."
      • "As for Sarah Fuller Whipple, I was thinking the same thing: Did she marry more than 1 time, and her maiden name is really Fuller. Sarah Fuller searches did not bring anything obvious, but I did notice the name Fuller in a document relating to Simri Smith: in the Proceedings of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templars and the Appendant Orders of Massachusetts and Rhode Island for the year ending October 28, 1874, there are Fullers listedin the list of Commanders: Stephen B. Fuller, and James B Fuller, and also listed as a Knight John Smith Fuller."
