      !SOURCE: Email from Rebecca Ott (email hidden) to the Whipple Website, 30 Mar 2008. She writes:
      Christopher Whipple is involved in the Baker estate in Ira as late as 1808. By 1810, I find a Mehitable Whipple enumerated by herself in nearby Middletown, Vermont. I can't find death dates nor a tombstone for Christopher or Mehitable and know nothing more about them.

      Oct. 28, 1797, Hezekiah Carr sold 99 acres of land to Christopher Whipple of Ira; signed in the presence of Samuel Newton and Mahl Baker. [I am interpreting the Mahl as Mehitable.]
