      !BIOGRAPHY: After "reaching manhood," Benjamin "went to Woonsocket [R.I.] and clerked in the then well known temperance hotel conducted by Otis D. Ballou, here spending six years." He then engaged in the lumber business in Providence for four years. "In 1856 [he] went to" Bay City, Michigan, where "Mr. Whipple ... embarked in the lumber business, continuing therein for over twenty-six years, during which time he cut over 100,000 acres of timber land in Michigan, the product of which was shipped to Albany and other points." Benjamin then returned East and engaged in the lumber business in the Adirondack Mountains. He subsequently went to Providence (retiring for two years), then to Kentucky for four years, and (finally) retired in Cumberland, Rhode Island. --Representative Men.
