While Arnold's VRs does give the date of February 11, 1754, the Vital Records of Uxbridge, MA to the Year 1850 notes his date of birth as "11th day, 2d mo. 1749" which corresponds to the secondary source of the William Augustus Mowry book as well as the grave stone information.

!SOURCE: Email from Matthew Fatale (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Website, 12 Aug 2010. Cites a photo of Richard's gravestone at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GScid=2365618&GRid=56944804& , which gives his death date 23 Jan 1835, at the age of 86. Death at age 86 reinforces the 11 Feb 1748/9 birth date given by William Augustus Mowry and the Vital Records of Uxbridge, MA to the Year 1850.
