      • WHIPPLE, Edwin, head, 25 single, b. Arkansas, father b. Indiana, mother b. Kansas, farmer

      "They are also in Pontotoc County, OK in the 1910 and 1920 Census, although the family is enumerated under the name Johnson W. WHIPPLE"


      !SOURCE: Email from Michael (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 3 Mar 2005. Suggests that Johnson W. Whipple might be the son of Abner Whipple and Sarah Gibson.

      !SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 10 Mar 2005. Norma writes:
      If you haven't already solved the "mystery" regarding Johnson/John W. Whipple {97732}, I'd like to posit that he is John/Jonathan Whipple 2648}, the son of Oscar F. Whipple {424} and his first wife Mary Watkins {443}. The link that I found to connect him is the 1900 Census, Madison Twp., Greenwood, KS where he is living next to Grant Whipple {2652} in whose household is Daisy Whipple, niece. In the 1910 Census, Midland Twp., Pontotoc, OK Daisy is enumerated as the daughter of Johnson W.Whipple.
