  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from R. Gilebarto to Weldon Whipple, 4 Jun 1998, citing Clara McGuigan's _The Antecedants and Descendants of Noah Whipple and the Rogerene Community at Quakertown, CT_

      !SOURCE: Clara Hammond McGuigan, The Antecedents and Descendants of Noah Whipple of the Rogerene Community at Quakertown, Connecticut (Ithaca, N.Y.: J.M. Kingsbury, 1971), p. 137. Gives marriage 20 Apr 1857.

      !BIOGRAPHY: "When Enoch died at the age of 72, he was the eldest deaf person of his time in the United States who had learned to speak and read lips. He had learned so well to read lips and speak that he did business with people for years and they never knew he was deaf. He was the model who inspired his nephew Zerah Whipple to open The Whipple Home School in Ledyard, CT, later known as the Mystic Oral School." --R. Gilebarto

      !CHILDREN: "There was another boy, George Alfred Whipple, not legally adopted but raised by Enoch and Delight after the deaths of their own children." --R. Gilebarto

      !SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 9 Dec 2009: "I looked at the 1860 census which lists Enoch Whipple as 34 and Delight as 26. Their marriage date of 1851 means she was only 16
      when they married, so she isn't Alfred's mother and probably wasn't married to anyone before Enoch."
