Tom writes: "Eleanor Mary Whipple, wife of MajGen Amiel Weeks Whipple is buried beside her husband at Proprietors Burying Ground, Portsmouth, NH." In a second note written the same day, Tom adds: "I visit the gravesite a couple of times a year. Both graves have suffered from acid rain and Amiel's from vandalism & could use a bit of restoration."
