      !SOURCE: Email from Juin Whipple (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Website, 23 Feb 2001. Cites a framed Whipple sampler:
      "It was framed many years ago in Troy , N.Y. and is faded but entirely legible. It is the usual; cross-stitched alphabet in various styles with floral and geometric patterns. A laurel wreath encircles the maker's initials and the date: 'A W 1826' The list of antecedents in the accompanying letter is interesting in that it refers back to Job Whipple, founder of 'Whipple City', now Greenwich, NY.and identifies Ira Hugh Whipple (my paternal grandfather) of whom you had no record.(see below)

      RE: Framed sampler made by AW (Ann Whipple) in 1826. It was sent to our family in 1936 by Mrs. Leonard H. Giles of "Sunny side", Troy, New York., a cousin of my grandfather, Ira Hugh Whipple. We knew her as "Cousin Birdie".

      Printed letterhead:

      Mrs. Leonard H. Giles
      "Sunnyside"
      Troy. N.Y.

      [Handwritten Text:]
      October
      1936
      "'Sampler made by Ann Whipple (Cory), daughter of
      David & Betsey Tefft Whipple, grand-d. of Job,
      wife of Allen Corey, mother of Mrs. Gaylord J. Clarke
      the mother of Mrs. Leonard H.Giles of Troy, N.Y., who sends

      !PARENTS: After initially stating that Job's parents are Daniel Whipple and Anne [Chamberlain] (p. 9, 12), F.V. McDonald convincingly states that Job's parents are instead Ephraim Whipple and Sylvia Lapham (p. 15-16). M.W. Peckham also gives Ephraim and Sylvia (Lapham) Whipple as parents.

      !BIOGRAPHY: "About 1775 he removed to Washington Co., N.Y., where he was a pioneer settler of Whipple City, later Greenwich, N.Y. He acquired valuable water sites and erected a flouring mill and later, with William Mowry of Rhode Island, he put in operation the first power machinery for spinning cotton in the state of New York." --M.W. Peckham, citing F.V. McDonald and W.A. Mowry (p. 115 et seq.)
