George Pilkington, of Atchison, Kan., informs the Record of the death at St. Joseph, Mo.,of James William Whipple, an old resident of Wilkes-Barre. Deceased, for many years, worked for HC Frey and William Dickover in Wilkes-Barre. For several years he made his home in Parsons previous to moving to St. Joseph, Mo., in 1878.

He was a competant and skilled mechanic in both branches, and at one time in his younger days operated one of the largest flour mills in Pennsylvania. He was married in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Dec 2, 1852, to Miss Caroline Santee of that city. Their married life was a long and happy one, the fruits of which were six children, three boys and three girls: William D. Whipple, now in Dallas, Texas; Walter S. Whipple, well known in this city, he being in the mantle and tile business for many years; Robert J. Whipple, well known in railroad circles, having a run as engineer on the old "Wabash" route; Mrs. George (Ida Maria) Phillips of this city, and Misses Lizzie C. (Elizabeth Catherine). and Lena M., unmarried and living with their mother.
