      !BIRTH: David Jillson, "Descendants of Capt. John Whipple, of Providence, R.I.," New-England Historical and Genealogical Register, 32 (1878): 404, gives birth date of 2 Oct 1664.

      !SOURCE: Dean Crawford Smith, The Ancestry of Emily Jane Angell, 1844-1910 (Boston: NEHGS, 1992), p. 449. Gives birth date 2 Oct 1666, citing The Early Records of the Town of Providence (Providence, 1892-1915), 5:295. John evidently had a difficult relationship with his father, "blind and at the mercy of his second wife who caused him to disinherit his only son [this John, RIN 6025], child of his first wife."

      In my latest book, [Captain John and Sarah Whipple....] on pages 84 and 88, I indicate that John Whipple III sold his father's homelot, which John Junior inherited from his father in 1663, to his uncle Col. Joseph Whipple 21 July 1705. Actually he sold (quitclaimed) the property to him on 8 Feb. 1708-9 (according to The Early Records of Providence on page 274.) The 1705 date was an apparent mortgage to Joseph. The records are confusing, but I believe this to be the accurate account.
