!SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to the Whipple Website, 13 Apr 2003. Cites The Sterry Family book: "The Providence Vital Records (1: 119) reveal that in 1739 Robert, a widower of almost two years, fathered an illegitimate child by Amey Potter, daughter of William and Martha (Tillinghast) Potter; Amey evidently kept the child when marrying a couple of years later."
