    • !SOURCE: Helen Schatvet Ullmann and L. Randall Harris, "The Origins of Thomas Harris and William Harris of Providence, Rhode Island," The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 167 (April 2013): 102.

      !SOURCE: Henry E. Whipple, A Brief History of the Whipple Families Who Settled in Rhode Island (Providence: A. Crawford Greene, 1873), p. 13. It appears that Henry *might* have skipped a generation in his book. Samuel's children listed on page 13 appear to be his grandchildren--the children of Samuel Jr. in other sources. Furthermore, the Elizabeth Eddy listed as Samuel's wife on page 13 is listed as Samuel's daughter-in-law (wife of Samuel's son named Samuel) in other sources. (A corrected copy of this source in the R.I. Historical Society Library also indicates that there are major problems with this information.)

Samuel "....was the first to set up a stagecoach [to Boston]; after him, Robert Currie, then Samuel Whipple; when they got through by day light, they thought to have done well." -- William R. Staples, Annals of the Town of Providence (Knowles and Vose, 1843) 605.
      As you will note from my book on Capt. John and family that Samuel was indeed a most enterprising fellow. Currie was his son-in-law.
