      !SOURCE: Descendancy chart of Gabriel Bernon, submitted 6 Feb 2007 by Blaine Whipple to Weldon Whipple. Does not include son Benedict in the list of Benjamin's children.

      !DEATH: Email from undisclosed at example dot net (received 23 Sep 1995) gives date 1787.

      !SOURCE: Email from Mike Smith (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 27 Oct 1998, citing J.O. Austin's Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, p. 221-223, and Arnold's Vital Records of Rhode Island, vol. 2, p.197-198, 255-257.

      !SOURCE: Representative Men and Old Families of Rhode Island (Chicago: J.H. Beers, 1908), 3:2153, 2162. States that Benjamin died in the 100th year of his age. Also indicates that there are two possible pairs of birth and death years, depending on the sources used: 1688-1788, 1686-1786. Seems to prefer the former.

      !SOURCE: Birth date (11 Nov 1688) and marriage date (11 Nov 1722) appear on "Whipple Family Bible Record," a page posted at http://www.rootsweb.com/~okgs/whipple_bible.htm by the Oklahoma Genealogical Society (and viewed by Weldon Whipple on 19 Mar 2003). The web page states:
      This Bible was published 1836 at Hartford, Connecticut, by R. White and Hutchison and D. Wier. Pasted on the inside of the back cover of this Bible is "This Bible was left to me by my mother, Mrs. Dorcas C. Mitchell who was a daughter of Vernon L. Olney and Louisa Olney, /S/ Mrs. Blanche Boswell." Mrs. Boswell died May 17. 1928, was buried May 28, 1928 at Thomas, Oklahoma beside her husband, Wm. C. Mitchell. The Bible was first "presented to Louisa Whipple by her father, Stephen Whipple, Jan.12, 1839."

      This Bible record was copied in California by Magna Merle (Boswell) Williamson (Mrs. B.E.), mother of Jack Ellis Williamson, OGS member, Weatherford, Oklahoma.
