  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: "Descendants of Samuel Whipple," email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 4 Aug 2004. Gives the following information:
      • Age: November 08, 1865, 83 yrs. old at death (Source: Grave Marker, Pages Cemetery, Dunbarton, NH.)
      • Burial: Pages Corner Cemetery, Dunbarton, NH (Source: Grave Marker, Pages Cemetery, Dunbarton, NH.)
      • Census 1: June 25, 1860, Age 78, living Dubarton, Merrimack, NH w/wife Achsah 74 (Source: 1860 Census, Dunbarton, Merrimack, NH, 211.)
      • Census 2: 1850, Age 68, living Dunbarton, Marrimack, NH w/wife Achsa 64 & son David F. 39 (Source: 1850 Census, Dunbarton, Merrimack, NH, 123.)
      • Tombstone: In memory Samuel Whipple who came to his grave in full age like as a shock of corn cometh in his season (Source: Grave Marker, Pages Cemetery, Dunbarton, NH.)


      !SOURCE: Email from Beverly Huckins (email hidden) to Weldon Whipple, 23 Feb 2005. Adds city and county of birth, date and place of marriage. Cites the following:
      • History of Dunbarton, Stark, 1860 - Brothers Captn Benjamin and John Whipple;
      • Town History, Mills, 1883;
      • Where the Wind Blows, Dunbarton, NH, Alice M. Hadley, 1976;
      • Sketch of Dunbarton, Mills, 1902;
      • Town Records, microfilm, NH State Library.
      Also notes the following:
      1. This Whipple, along with brothers John and Benjamin, who came to Starkville (Dunbarton), are of the Hamilton, MA line. There are other Whipples listed residing in Dunbarton in addition to his brothers. Samuel and his brother Benjamin lived mainly at the district of Page Corner in Dunbarton and both of them prospered and were well esteemed by the town. The Whipple homesteads were improved and expanded over their lifetimes.
      2. Have not been able to find an exact DOB for Samuel. There is a possiblity that the 1850 census is incorrect on his age. The 1860 census shows him to be 78 and Achsah is 74.
      3. The town of Dunbarton was originally called Starkville and was taken from Hillsboro County to form Merrimack County. North Dunbarton is sometimes referred to as Bow.
