  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Dwane V. Norris, Whipple Family Tree (Jackson, Mich., 1996), p. 513. Gives name John Whipple.

      !RELATIONSHIP: "Little is known how he fits into either of the Whipple lines, since John is a very common name used in both the Whipple families. It is believed that this John Whipple might have been from the Captain John Whipple lineage, which came from Providence, Rhode Island." --D.V. Norris.

      !SOURCE: Email from Michael Whipple (email hidden) to the Whipple Website, 10 Dec 2005. Identifies Benjamin Franklin Whipple's father as Isaac P. Whipple, noting the following:
      I would like to share with you some information on Benjamin Franklin Whipple's (32502) possible father. I could not find any connection to a John Whipple from Masonville, Delaware County, New York. What I did find was an Isaac P. Whipple (1820 & 1830 Census Masonville, Delaware, New York.) Below are the pieces I've been able to put together. I would really appreciate your thoughts on this. [Included are] my calculations on ages. There were two separate Court House fires, in Henry County, Ohio, which destroyed most records. The loss of records in the fires are the cause for the below listed Legal Notice.

      I've located a will, Elnathan Scofield, which mentions his daughter "Aby Whipple." Also mentioned was Jared Scofield (Aby's brother) as being Isaac P.'s brother in law. In addition I found "Mary Whipple" as one of the 1st School Teacher's in Flatrock Township.

        In 1833 there was no post-office nearer than Defiance, but one was established in about 1834, called McClean, after John McClean, the post-master general. Jared Scofield and Isaac. P. Whipple, his brother-in-law, were both candidates for postmaster, which was amicably settled between them, and Isaac P. Whipple became the appointee, this being the first post-office in the township, and perhaps the first one in the territory of Henry County. Mail was received about once each month, carried on horseback, by John Omens, as near as can be ascertained. This post-office was situated about one mile east of the present town of Florida.
      7. I.P. Whipple 1840 Census - Flatrock, Henry County, Ohio

      8. The History of Fulton and Henry County states on page 225, that the first post office near Florida (Ohio) was established about 1834 with Isaac P. Whipple as postmaster. It remained there until about 1842, when, at the death of Mr. Whipple, it was moved to Florida (City.)

      10. Susan's sister, Elizabeth Cover, married Elliott Gunn 9-7-1845 in Ottawa County, Ohio. Elliott Gunn was from Maumee Valley, Flatrock, Henry County area.
      11. B.F. and Susan's 1st born Aby Elizabeth born 11-6-1845 in Flatrock, Henry County, Ohio. Looking at the Notice below. They must have traveled to Flatrock numerous times.
      12. Susan's mother 1st name was "Elizabeth" Shoop.
      13. Isaac P. Whipple wife's name is Abigail "Aby" Scofield.
      14. B.F. and Susan named their 2nd son "Isaac P." 1st son's name was "Ira"
      15. B.F. and Susan named their 3rd son "Elliott Gunn"
