Notes

!SOURCE: Email from Susan Newell (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 10 Jul 2011. Cites an earlier email where she suggested the possibility that Priam might be a son of Eugene A. Whipple who died young. Now she writes: "Since I sent you the poem about Priam Parker Whipple, I have pretty much determined that he was not a son of Eugene A. Whipple. I now suspect that he may have been a brother to Eugene, i.e. a young son lost to Sybil and Benjamin Whipple. Someone had provided info that they had a third child (Benjamin) that died very young. I have found nothing of a Benjamin, and I am learning that there is a lot of misinformation on genealogy sites. Anyway, I thought you might want to correct this page on the blog and change it to a possible child of Sybil and Benjamin. That's my best educated guess at this point." Here is the poem Susan sent on 30 May 2011, "Transcribed from a fragile document, beautifully handwritten in fine, small, perfect script with quill pen and now faded ink, probably dating to the mid to late 1800s":
Here drooping by his lifeless side
    Pensive retired with grief oer' borne
Lovely in Death my darling pride
    He my long weeping Heart will Mourn.
Farewell then Dearest of my Heart,
    Whom neither tears nor prayer could save,
Tis Deaths redoubled pain to part,
    And leave such Beauty in the Grave.
Ah! He that once such Beauty graced.
    His winning smiles -- His angel form,
Corruptions greedy train shall waste.
    The Mouldering Dust -- the feasting Worm:
His tongue whose gentle prattlings blest,
    His hands whose tender touch could charm,
No more with Kisses shall be prest,
    No more his Mothers bosom warm.
Where His loved sight could once rejoice,
    Now forced his absence to sustain.
Mine ears wait listening for His Voice,
    I turn and seek His glimpses in vain.
By Night my Eyes the search repeat,
    Sad to the Glittering Skies they roll,
"Tell Me" I say The Happy Seat,
    Say where reside His blissful Soul:
Yet with bright hopes in distant View
    My faith instructed by the Sod,
Bids the false joys of Earth Adieu,
    And Bows before the Sovreign God.
Happy for Him so soon -- so well,
    To escape the woes which life annoy,
To part with few sad tales to tell,
    With me black grief to damp His joy:
Till the last hour of general Doom,
    Kind Angels guard his precious trust:
Lock the cold Chambers of the Tomb,
    Then wake my Priam's slumbering Dust.
That day shall bring Him to my Sight,
    His presence shall my joys restore,
Tell me thou thought with vast delight,
    When Death shall never part us more.
