      525. "Sarah, wife of Hezekiah C. Whipple," to church October 7th, 1821, baptized same time; her maiden name Capron. They lived next south of Alvin North. He was a jeweler from Providence, R.

      5. Christopher C., born July 7th, 1818 died March 11th, 1820, aged two years.
      6. Frances, born Aug. 26th, 1821, bap. Oct. 21st, 1821, married Nov. 26th, 1846, George A. Richards, of North Haven."
      You didn't have Ann Jane. I've looked high and low for her with her husband, unsuccessfully. There is an Ithiel Sanger in the area, but he married prior to Ann's marriage date, and stayed married to his wife past Ann's marriage date. I followed that family a long ways to verify that Ithiel was NOT her husband.
