McDonald, Inquiries Relating to the Ancestors and Descendants of Job Whipple, of Cumberland, Rhode Island, and Greenwich, Washington County, New York (Cambridge: University Press, John Wilson & son, 1881), p. 15. Quotes a letter from Emeline Whipple, which states that Ephraim is the father of Job Whipple and Marmaduke Whipple, each with a different wife. Earlier in the book, McDonald seemed to indicate that Job was instead the same person as RIN 10927, son of Daniel Whipple and Anne Chamberlain.

      !PARENTS: M.W. Peckham gives father as Job Whipple, Jr. (1704-25 Feb 1730, the son of Job and Silence (Pray) Whipple). Other sources (including F.V. McDonald) give Ephraim's parents as Job an Silence (Pray) Whipple.

Yost
