      Oliver Whipple and James Whipple killed in a powder mill explosion in Gorham Maine 10.12.1855 - this Oliver appears to be #3732 History of Gorham ME, Hugh Davis McLellan, pg 274 "Oliver M. Whipple of Lowell, Mass in 1833 purchased the plant . . . He put Lucius Whipple, his brother, in charge of the works as foreman. Powder mills have a bad habit of exploding periodically, and the Gambo mills have proved no exception to the rule . . . In the explosion which occurred on Oct 12, 1855 one wheelmill, press mill and a canal boat were destroyed. James Whipple and Oliver G. Whipple, who were respectively Oliver M. Whipple's brother and son , were killed.
