  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: John Osborne Austin, _Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island_ (Albany, N.Y., 1887; reprint ed. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1978) p. 221. This source shows Dorothy as a daughter of father John's second wife Rebecca.

      !SOURCE: Henry E. Whipple, A Brief Genealogy of the Whipple Families Who Settled in Rhode Island (Providence: A. Crawford Greene, 1873), p. 13. From a corrected copy of the book found in the Rhode Island Historical Society Library, call no. CS71.W574 1873 RIHSL. This source shows Dorothy as the third child of father John's first wife Mary Olney. A penned correction also shows Israel Arnold as Dorothy's husband.

      !SOURCE: James N. Arnold, Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850, Vol. 1, Warwick, Part 1 (Providence: Narragansett Historical Pub. Co., 1892), p. 99. Gives marriage date 8 May 1699/1700 in Warwick.

      !SOURCE: James N. Arnold, Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850, Vol. 2, Providence, Part 1 (Providence: Narragansett Historical Pub. Co., 1892), p. 157. Gives marriage 8 Mar 1699/1700 in Providence.

      !MARRIAGE: Year of marriage varies from source to source (some giving 1698/1699, others 1699/1700. The 1699/1700 year is from New England Marriages Prior to 1700 / Clarence Almon Torrey (Baltimore : Genealogical Pub. Co., 1985) p. 619.

      !SPOUSE: A handwritten "correction" to Henry E. Whipple's A Brief Genealogy of the Whipple Families Who Settled in Rhode Island (Providence: A. Crawford Greene, 1873), p. 13, lists an Israel Arnold as Dorothy's husband. Other sources do not substantiate this relationship. --Weldon Whipple.

      !CHILDREN: The International Genealogical Index has an entry for a Joseph Arnold, born 14 Nov 1721 in Warwick, Kent, R.I. to an Israel Arnold and Dorothy Whipple. Does that entry refer to this Dorothy? --Weldon Whipple.

      !DEATH: Date: Email from Susan Shannon (email hidden) to the Whipple Web Site, 24 Oct 1997.

      !BIRTH: Email from Susan Shannon (email hidden) to the Whipple Web Site, 24 Oct 1997, gives birth date 3 Jun 1669.

      !SOURCE: Dean Crawford Smith, The Ancestry of Emily Jane Angell, 1844-1910 (Boston: NEHGS, 1992), p. 449. Describes her as "unrecorded" and lists Dorothy as child of John's second wife Rebecca. This conflicts with S. Shannon, whose birth date would make Dorothy the daughter of Mary Olney, John's first wife.

      !SOURCE: Charles M. Whipple, Jr., A History of William Whipple of Dorchester, Massachusetts and Smithfield, Rhode Island, 1652-1712: His Antecedents and Descendants. (Victoria, B.C.: Trafford, c2006), p. 4. Adds approximate birth date (abt 1680); gives death 19 Sep 1728 (previously entered as 10 Sep 1728.
