  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: John Osborne Austin, _Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island (Albany, N.Y., 1887; reprint ed. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1978) p. 223. Lists Christopher's birth (to Joseph and Alice (Smith) Whipple) 6 Mar 1707.

      !NAME: 10th sibling also had name Christopher.

      !SOURCE: Henry E. Whipple, A Brief Genealogy of the Whipple Families Who Settled in Rhode Island (Providence: A. Crawford Greene, 1873), p. 39. Gives Christopher's birth (to Joseph and Alice (Smith) Whipple) in March 1706. On page 19, the author states that it was this Christopher who married a Sarah Whipple, who (after Christopher died, leaving Sarah a widow) subsequently married Ezekiel Whipple, the son of Daniel). (See MARRIAGE note below, which seems to contradict Henry's conclusion.)

      !SOURCE: Dean Crawford Smith, The Ancestry of Emily Jane Angell, 1844-1910 (Boston: NEHGS, 1992), p. 474. Gives birth on 6 Mar 1706/7, to Alice Smith and Joseph Whipple, citing James N. Arnold, 2:1:256.

      !SOURCE: James N. Arnold, Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850, Vol. 2, Providence, Part 1 (Providence, R.I.: Narragansett Historical Pub. Co., 1892), p. 256. Records Christopher's birth 6 Mar 1606-7, to Joseph and Alice Whipple.

      !MARRIAGE: Was it really this Christopher Whipple whose wife Sarah Whipple later married Ezekiel? [No, even though] Henry E. Whipple (A Brief Genealory of the Whipple Families) thinks so. N. Combs, in a note to the Whipple Website dated 28 Mar 2003, points out that volume 15 of Arnold's Vital Record of Rhode Island (the one that indexes marriages from the Providence Gazette), records the marriage of Mrs. Sarah Whipple, widow of Christopher, and Ezekiel Whipple, at North Providence. However, Norma further states that Arnold's Vital Record of Rhode Island 2:4:43, "records the March 6, 1785 marriage between Christopher Whipple, of Thomas, dec'd. and Sarah Cushing, of Elijah, dec'd."
