      !SOURCE: Email from Anne Billeter (email hidden) to Weldon Whipple, 18 Apr 2018. Cites Andrews, Alfred. "Genealogy and Ecclesiastical History" [of the First Church and Society of New Britain, Hartford, CT], c. 1867, p. 350. [Google Books, accessed 2 Apr 2018]:
      749. "William C. Whipple," to church April 1st, 1832, son of Hezekiah C. and his wife N9. (525), born April 5th, 1814, married Nov. 1st, 1836, Elizabeth Osborn, in New Haven, daughter of Henry F. of that city, and Louise (Sperry, his wife,) born March 3d, 1820; they live in Westville, Conn.

      First, there's a discrepancy about William's wife.  Here's what I've found about Elizabeth.  I believe this is one person, although there is obvious name confusion.  You have identified her as I158420.

      "Vital Records of New Haven, 1649-1850, Part I" published by The Connecticut Society of the Order of the Founders and Patriots of America, c. 1917 in Hartford.  On p. 579 "New Haven Vital Records" it states:  This certifies that Wm C. Whipple of Hamden & Elizabeth Fayt of New Haven were Joined in marriage on the 1st Novr, 1836 by me, Newel Johnson  Justice of Peace."

      FHL film 1405824, image 422, "Index to Marriages, New Haven, New Haven, CT" lists "Whipple  Wm. C.   Elizabeth Foyt   [v.]4  [p]168

      FHL film 1405868, image 167, "Marriages of New Haven, New Haven, CT" states:  "Whipple - This certifies that Wm. C. Whipple of Hamden & Elizabeth Fayt of New Haven were Joined in marriage on the 1st Novr 1836 by me  Newel Johnson  Justice of Peace.

      Fayt, Foyt, or Foit, this family was very elusive.  I found "Louisa Foyt" in the 1830 census, New Haven Town (except City), New Haven, CT, with a number of other household members.  On the same page there is a "Betsey Sperry."  In the time I was able to give to this I was unable to find Henry Foyt, any other mention of Louise/a Foyt (by any spelling), or the Sperrys, with the resources available to me.  I suspect Osborn was Elizabeth's middle name, rather than her surname.  Not sure why Andrews entry is as it is.  I could not locate a Henry and Louise Osborn, either.

      FHL film #1405867, images 286 and 287, "Record of Deaths in the Town of New Haven", Deaths v. 30, p. 115:
      [1896] Dec. 13  Whipple, Elizabeth F.; maiden name:  Foit; place of death:  238 Blake St <https://maps.google.com/?q=238+Blake+St&entry=gmail&source=g>.; age:  77y 9 m 10d; condition if wife or widow of whom:  widow of William C.; birthplace:  New Haven Conn; Name and birthplace of parents [blank]; disease or cause of death:  softening of brain; physician or person certifying:  J. W. Barker"

      New Haven Register, Mon., Dec 14, 1896, p. 2 [Genealogy Bank, accessed 8 Apr 2018]
      "WHIPPLE -- In Westville, December 13, Mrs. Elizabeth F. Whipple, in the 78th year of her age.  Funeral services will be held at her late residence, 238 Blake Street <https://maps.google.com/?q=238+Blake+Street&entry=gmail&source=g>, on Tuesday, December 5, at 2 o'clock."
