The Dexter family genealogy names Mary Whipple as his wife; possibly he was twice married. His children were: John, Anne, James, David, Hopestill, and Mercy Dexter. Genealogies of Rhode Island Families, from Rhode Island Periodicals (Baltimore: Genealogical Pub. Co., 1983), 2:9.

      !SOURCE: M.M. Wilkinson, _Genealogy of Wilkinson and Kindred Families_ (Shelby, Miss.: Shelby Book Store, 1949), p. 75. Lists Hannah Wilkinson as wife, with no mention of Mary Whipple.

      !SOURCE: "Descendants of Sarah Whipple," descendancy chart from Beverly Phillips (rogerp@vegas.info.net) to the Whipple Website, 21 Dec 1998. Gives place of death as Smithfield, Providence, Rhode Island. (Previously entered in database as Providence, R.I.) Gives Hannah Wilkinson as wife, mentioning Mary Whipple in notes.

      !SOURCE: S.C. Newman, Dexter Genealogy: Being a Record of the Families Descended from Rev. Gregory Dexter (Providence: A. Crawford Greene, 1859), p. 47-48. Gives Mary Whipple as wife (and mother of six children John, James, David, Anna, Marcy and Hopestill); makes no mention of Hannah Wilkinson.
