Huckins to Weldon Whipple, 17 Nov 2015: "Chauncey and wife Mary show up in the 1850 census in Summit, Northampton, Ohio census with twin sons Elijah and Elisha age 15 born in Ohio. ... According to a 1879 newspaper article in the Staunton Spectator, the twin, Elisha Whipple was shot and killed by a neighbor Jan 27, 1879, over the loss of affections of the neighbor's wife and from whom he had been divorced a few months prior. His killer turned himself in and was sentenced to hard labor for life. His ex-wife Mrs. Dunn had been a nurse to Elisha's mother. Elisha was 44 yrs old at death, unmarried, and was buried with his parents. There is also an account of this altercation resulting in his death in the book Fifty Years and Over of Akron and Summit Counties (Lane) which notes Elisha resided on a large farm with his parents Mrs. and Mrs. Chauncy Whipple."
