      DEATHS WHIPPLE, - in St. Joseph, Mo., Feb 27 1891, James William WHIPPLE, formerly of Wilkes-Barre, aged 64 years. Mentioned elsewhere. (on same page) Died In The West. 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. A St. Joseph paper says: "James W. Whipple was born in Newport, Pa. on the 29th day of May, 1827, and was a bricklayer and miller by trade. 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.
