Gives death in Attleborough, Rhode Island. (Actually Attleborough, Massachusetts, and Cumberland, Rhode Island were right next to each other geographically. Depending on where the Massachusetts-Rhode Island boundary is at a given time period, the same point on the map might be in either jurisdiction. --Weldon Whipple) Gives marriage to David Whipple on 13 Dec 1677. (Previously entered as 11 Nov 1677.)

      !NAME: Variant surnames: Tower, Travers, Cowell?

Joshua Hubbard, Justice, Nov. 11, 1677. (Note that surname is "Travers"--not Tower.) On the other hand, Clarence Almon Torrey, in _New England Marriages Prior to 1700_ (Baltimore: Genealogical Pub. Co., 1985), p. 802, records: "WHIPPLE, David (-1710) & 2/wf Hannah TOWER/COWELL? (1652-1722); 13 Dec 1677, 11 Nov 1677, 13? Nov; Hingham/Attleboro/Providence." --Weldon Whipple. J. Lahr-Kreischer, in email to the Whipple Web Site on 14 Nov 1997, gives Hannah's surname as Tower.
