      !SOURCE: Email from Ray Bass (email hidden) to the Whipple Website, 15 Aug 2012. He writes:
      • In the 1790 Census, Nathan Whipple 1761-1832 is listed in Stephentown, NY. He has a single male son within the age range of Nathan Whipple, 1789-1860?. Nathan Whipple 1789-1860? was almost certainly born in Stephentown, Rensselaer, NY, and not in Vermont.
      • In the 1830 Censuses for Petersburg, Grafton, and Berlin, NY (all Rensselaer County) - there is only a single Whipple family listed -- in Petersburg. That family was headed by Nathan Whipple. There are two male children listed, one under the age of 5 and one between the ages of 5 and 10. As Henry Whipple is thought to have been born about 1837... neither of the two male children could be him.
        • I firmly believe that one of the two was George W. Whipple, born about 1826-died after 1880. However, as Geo W. is my great great grandfather, I am not quite as objective as I might be on this subject. Except for a short period of 6 weeks when he enlisted in the 31st MA (disharged for medical reasons) George spent his entire life in either Berlin or Petersburg, NY and was born in one or the other town (likely Petersburg. Berlin was created out of Petersburg in 1806 and they are abutting communities.) There were, in fact, two George Whipples living in Petersburg at the time of the outbreak of the Civil War. The second, about 10-15 years younger, was likely born in nearby Grafton, NY and served in the 169th NY (his father was a Stephen Whipple from NH.)


      !SOURCE: Email from Ray Bass (email hidden) to the Whipple Website, 4 Sep 2013. He writes: "I believe that ... Nathan Whipple [Jr.] (1789-abt 1860), born in Stephen Town, Rensselaer County, New York, was the father of George W. Whipple--precisely because he was the ONLY Whipple in Grafton, Berlin, or Petersburg, Rensselaer County, NY (where George W. was born) who had a male child in the appropriate age bracket between the years 1820 and 1830."
