  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 4 Jan 2007. Cites Angela M. Ruley, Rockbridge County, Virginia Cemeteries : South River and Walkers Creek Districts (Rockbridge Baths, Virginia: Rockbridge Area Genealogical Society, c1999), p. 144: "Charles Rutledge Whipple d. 24 Nov. 1880 age 28" ("All probably were born and died in Brownsburg, Rockbridge, Virginia.")

      !SOURCE: Email from B. Huckins to Weldon Whipple, 2 May 2008. "I would guess that the Charles Rutledge Whipple you have listed as disconnected 106702 belongs in this family [of Andrew Boulware Whipple (RIN 81595), great grandson of a Rutledge who was the sister of the governor of South Carolina] somewhere. The Southern Collegian published by Washington and Lee University, where Charles attended 1872-73, published a memoriam upon his death and notes as follows. He came from Virginia where he had taught at the McGuire School in Richmond and where he was also the editor and publisher of a political newspaper, The Intelligencer. From there he commenced to study law in 1875-76 at the University of Virginia, subsequently opening a law office in Richmond and shortly thereafter he became the Secretary to the Office of Governor (Virginia). Charles went to Nashville in July of 1880 to pursue work as a journalist. He died from a sudden illness in Nashville, Tennessee November 24, 1880, age 26. The University of Virginia lists him as born 1852 d 1880."
