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
