  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Joanne Lahr-Kreischer, 22 Sep 1998. Gives middle name Allen.

      !SOURCE: Email from Lynda Ozinga to the Whipple Website, 25 Jul 2000, citing obituary searches, internet information on the Russell family in Dassell Minnesota, and other researchers. Gives middle name Ellen.

      !SOURCE: Email from Jon Whipple (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 2 Oct 2002. Jon writes: "Ellen Burns is unrelated to Charles except through marriage. She was Walter Wesley Whipple's wife. I believe he became acquainted with her when he and his family (Russell Giles Whipple) lived in Henry Co., IL with them. It seems that Walter came to Illinois with his brother around 1854. When the Civil War broke out, he enlisted as a private in the 13th IL US Cavalry. After the war, he somehow made it back to Ohio and married Ellen Burns. Then he brought her back to Illinois. After Walter died in 1887, at some time she moved to Greenfield, IA. It was here she married her nephew Charles on 9 Sep 1937. This was one year after Charles' wife died in Anoka MN. This sure is confusing."

      !SOURCE: Email from Lynda Ozinga to Weldon Whipple 23 Sep 2003. Cites obituary of Deborah E. Burns (from the Greenfield [Iowa] Transcript, Thursday, August 8, 1929):
      Deborah E. Burns, Dau of Stephen and Mary Ann Burns,...father died when she was only two years old. She with her mother and brother came to Medina, Ohio where she lived with the exception of five years spent in Seville, Ohio. here occurred her marriage to Walter W. Whipple February 17, 1869. After her marriage, she and her husband moved to Cambridge, Illinois, where they lived until the death of her husband in 1887. In the fall of 1919 she was united in marriage to Charles A. Whipple, who survived her...She is survived by four sons (Charles "Willis" from Anacortes Washington; William "Winn" from Adair Co, Iowa; David "Arthur" from Cambridge, Illinois & Harry from St. Louis, Missouroi); eleven grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren, who mourn her loss. She was preceded in death by one son "Allie" Jan 3, 1918. Mrs. Whipple has been a resident of Greenfield for 32 years. Mrs. Whipple was a most faithful member of the Presbyterian church, a regular attendant upon all its services and interested in all its activities.
