"Joseph (3) was born Newport 3 July 1725. d. 1761 (Arnold 7:82). Deputy Governor 1749-1754. Joseph had financial trouble. In 1753, he mortgaged the family farm in Middletown, next community to Newport. (Land /evidence, Middletown, 1:175-180). It was 61 acres with a large house. Between Dec. 1753 and Mar. 225,075 pounds were raised form the sale of more than 500 acres if Whipple property in Middletown (need citation).On 2 Nov 1754, he resigned as Deputy Governor (Barltlett 5:377)

"According to the Newport Mercury of 29 March 1915, in 1761, Joseph Whipple, former deputy governor, became intemperate and was drowned from the Point Bridge [in Newport] while returning from the theatre on the Point.[The Point is the oldest settled area of Newport]."

!GOVERNMENT: Deputy Governor of Rhode Island, 1749-1954. --Charles M. Whipple

!SOURCE: Email from Charles M. Whipple, Jr., to Weldon Whipple, 4 Oct 2003. Charles writes: "I am now convinced that Lieutenant Governor Joseph Whipple Jr. was Anglican not Quaker. I received a reply from Harvard University finally. His son, William, graduated in 1749 at the head of his class. His biography notes that he was indeed Church of England as was Col. Joseph Whipple, his father. So, although Lieutenant Governor Joseph Whipple III and his mother, as well as some siblings may have been Quakers, at least it is now known that this was indeed a religiously mixed marriage."
