      He was my dad's (Marshall Lofland Whipple and still living) grandfather. He was BORN Cephus Galusha Whipple. We had a relative who INSISTED it was Charles Galusha Whipple and stated she knew it because she had his birth certificate. She did NOT have his birth certificate because they didn't HAVE birth certificates at that time. What she had was his marriage certificate, because my mother sent it to her, and by the time of his wedding, he'd gotten pretty thoroughly fed up with a name like Cephus (who wouldn't) and wrote Charles Galusha Whipple on everything. He was BORN Cephus Galusha Whipple. My dad's comment was "He was my grandfather - I think I know what his name was!"


      !SOURCE: Email from Sue McCormack to Weldon Whipple, 23 Mar 2006. Sue writes:
      Ah - found the note on which I wrote about Cephus -

      "Samuel Elijah Whipple had a brother named Cephus Galusha Whipple. He named his SON Cephus after his BROTHER Cephus."

      There - just as it came from my mother's mouth.
