      !SOURCE: Grave Marker in the Ledyard Union Cemetery, cited in email from R. Gilebarto to Weldon Whipple, May 1998.

      !SOURCE: Email from R. Gilebarto to the Whipple Web Site, 23 Jan 2000, citing New London, Connecticut Town Records.

      !DEATH: At Lawrence and Memorial Hospital, New London, Connecticut. --R. Gilebarto, 23 Jan 2000

      !SOURCE: Email from R. Gilebarto to Weldon Whipple, 22 Mar 2007, noting the following:
      Florence Ruth ... was NOT born in Ledyard as stated on death certificate. Ledyard Town Hall verified the lack of record.

      Information [on her death certificate] was provided by her son Jacob, and in error. She was born in Westerly, RI, where her mother died 6 days later from Puerperal fever (infection of the womb). This was stated by Grandma herself to my mother when she was alive.

      1930 Census gives correct info of RI birth
