  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Charles Whipple (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 22 Oct 2007. Cites The Mayflower Quarterly vol. 73, no. 3, (September 2007), p. 292: "Mayflower Families Correction," Judith H. Swan, Co-Director, Five Generation Project:
      Mayflower Families 18:2, page 66, states that Elizabeth Sprague, 5th generation descendant of Richard Warren, married William Whipple, born 1685, died after 1759, son of William and Mary (----) Whipple. This is corrected to read Elizabeth Sprague married ca. 1714, William Whipple, Jr., born ca 1691; died Smithfield RI, 16 Nov 1776; son of William and Mary (---) Whipple.

      Captain John1 Whipple and his wife Sarah (----) had eleven children, including William2 and David. William2 and Mary (----) Whipple had William3 (c1691 - 16 Nov 1776); Mary; and Seth (c1696 - 1724). David2 and Hannah (Tower) Whipple had seven children, including William3 (27 May 1685 - 1743). Identity of William Whipple, Jr. as the husband of Elizabeth Sprague is made by a 1734 Providence RI deed, in which "William Whipple, Jr., brother of Seth Whipple," sold land formerly granted to Seth Whipple, and signed by William's wife, Elizabeth, with an "X."



      !FATHER: Some sources state that this William's father is David(2), Capt. John(1). Others indicate that this William's father is William(2), Capt. John(1). Email from Joanne Lahr-Kreischer to the Whipple Web Site on 29 Sep 1997 has persuaded the family webmaster to choose David(2), Capt. John(1). The webmaster reversed that decision following receipt of "Captain John Whipple's Two Grandsons Named William Whipple: A Reply" from Charles Whipple, 1 Nov 2002.

      !SOURCE: Charles M. Whipple, Jr., Sons and Daughters of Jesse: A 360 Year History of the Whipple Family (Oklahoma City: Southwestern Press, 1976), p. 13. (Gives William(2) as this William's father.)

      !SOURCE: David Jillson, "Descendants of Capt. John Whipple, of Providence, R.I.," New-England Historical and Genealogical Register, 32 (1878): 405, states that *this* William (with 17 children) was the child of William(2).
