  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Christopher Congdon (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Website, 15 Apr 2010. Cites/notes the following:
      • 30 Jun 1870 Census of Providence Ward 8, Providence, Rhode Island, p. 135, dwelling 686, family 1177:
        • McKay, Alexander, 50, grocer (ret), b. Scotland
        • McKay, Grace, 40, keeping house, b. Scotland
        • McKay, Elizabeth, 18, works in hoop skirt manf, b. MA
        • McKay, Agnes, 15, at school, b. RI
        • McKay, Mary, 12, at school, b. RI
        • McKay, Grace, 8, at school, b. RI
        • McKay, Carrie, 6, at school, b. RI
      • 1860 Census (Warwick): 9 year old Elizabeth McKay is living with 41 year old Alexander McKay who was born in Scotland and 30 year old Grace N McKay who was born in Scotland. Can't read Alexander's profession. The transcription for this record claims that Alexander's daughters are also living here: Agnes J (5) and Mary E (2). Again, these pages are VERY hard to read.

        • Groom: George Hamilton age 22
        • Bride: Agnes Jane McKay age 21
        • Date: 20 Oct 1875
        • Location: Providence, Rhode Island
        • Groom's Parents: William & Isabella
        • Bride's Parents: Alexander & Grace
      • Rhode Island Deaths, 1630-1930 (Ancestry.com)
        • Name: Agnes J Hamilton
        • Relation: wf
        • Kin 1: George Hamilton
        • Kin 2: Susan Hamill (wonder if it is supposed to be Hamilton?)
        • Death Date: 12 Mar 1878
        • Age: 23 years
      • If I am right and Alexander has two wives, then I believe that Grace and Carrie are Grace N's daughters and Lizzie, Agnes, and Mary are Margaret's daughters. I'll work on this some more. I'm also off to work on the Youngs.
