      !SOURCE: Email from Charles M. Whipple, Jr., to Weldon Whipple, 4 Oct 2003. Charles writes: "I am now convinced that Lieutenant Governor Joseph Whipple Jr. was Anglican not Quaker. I received a reply from Harvard University finally. His son, William, graduated in 1749 at the head of his class. His biography notes that he was indeed Church of England as was Col. Joseph Whipple, his father. So, although Lieutenant Governor Joseph Whipple III and his mother, as well as some siblings may have been Quakers, at least it is now known that this was indeed a religiously mixed marriage."
