Charles included a photocopy of a typescript of data "from the original records in Providence [R.I.] and Tolland, Conn. [typed] by Emily G. Weiss, 130 E. 57th St., New York City." The document reads (in part):

      Thomas Whipple Family

      (Thomas was the son of Samuel and grandson of Capt. John, the emigrant.)

      The proof that Abraham4 Whipple of Enfield, Conn., was the son of Thomas3, Samuel2, Captain John1 has been sought for many years. The following land records of Providence, R.I., and Tolland, Conn., are, therefore, of especial interest to descendants of this branch of the family.

      !RESIDENCES: Lived in Glocester, Rhode Island. --C.A.H. Newton; according to C.M. Whipple, Jr., he lived in Smithfield, R.I. (not Glocester); he "left Rhode Island in about 1718" -- C.M. Whipple, Jr.

      !CHILDREN: According to Clair A. Hemenway Newton, Captain John Whipple, 1617-1685, and His Descendants (Naperville, Ill., 1946), p. 52, Thomas and Abigail had three additional children, named Enoch, Daniel and Noah. Charles M. Whipple, Jr., in email to Weldon Whipple dated 13 Jan 2005, suggests otherwise. He writes:
      I have been diligently searching the records for Noah, Enoch, and Daniel, the supposed sons of Thomas Senior (636). I am presently writing on his history and have entitled it--from the Louquisset Meadows to Thomas' Pond. I have come to the conclusion that that they never existed. Do you know off hand where the present information on the website was obtained? I think Newton took her source from Jillson. I would like to hypothesize what might have happened. The sons of Noah (635) were also Noah, Enoch, and Daniel. Could it be that they were mistakenly added to Thomas? ... McGuigan, (p. 36) the most authoritative source on the Samuel Whipple family I've consulted, does not know of these three sons of Thomas.
