  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Henry E. Whipple, A Brief Genealogy of the Whipple Families Who Settled in Rhode Island (Providence: A. Crawford Greene, 1873), p. 26. Gives death 9 Jul 1802.

      !SOURCE: James N. Arnold, Vital Records of Rhode Island, 1636-1850, vol. 2, Johnston, pt. 3 (Providence, R.I.: Harragansett Historical Pub. Co., 1892), p. 19, 29. Is this the correct Ruth? (Probably: Death date matches that given by H.E. Whipple, and Ruth's [no maiden name given] death entry is immediately followed by birth entrys for three children of Zilpha, whom Benjamin married after Ruth's death.)

      !CHILDREN: No children. --H.E. Whipple

      4. Wheatley Fam Records, George H. Wheatley, 1998 - "Benjamin (Whipple) birth unknown, parents unknown, married Ruth Brown b 1760 Johnston, RI, dau of Gideon Brown Sr and Ruth Ruttenburg, son of Joseph Brown Sr b 5.5.1701 and Martha Field b 1710 Field's Point, Providence, RI."
