  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Henry E. Whipple, A Brief Genealogy of the Whipple Families Who Settled in Rhode Island (Providence: A. Crawford Greene, 1873), p. 19. Henry [incorrectly] states that this Sarah first married Christopher Whipple, the son of Joseph and Alice (Smith) Whipple, and subsequently married Ezekiel Whipple, son of Daniel. Later research by N. Combs shows that this Sarah Whipple is actually the Sarah/Sally Cushing who married Christopher Whipple the son of Thomas and Anna or Amey (Harris) Whipple. After Christopher died, Sarah married Ezekiel Whipple on 10 Apr 1790.

      !SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to the Whipple Website, 28 Mar 2003. Norma writes:
      "Arnold's VR 2:4:43 does list the marriage on April 4, 1790 between Sarah Whipple (9769) and Ezekiel Whipple (9763). However, the Providence Gazette of April 10, 1790 (15:433) has the following account: Whipple, Ezekiel and Mrs. Sarah, widow of Christopher, at North Providence. Arnold's VR 2:4:43 records the March 6, 1785 marriage between Christopher Whipple, of Thomas, dec'd. and Sarah Cushing, of Elijah, dec'd. This latter union is in the Whipple Genweb--Christopher at 10111 and Sarah Cushing at 10137. In my database I have Sarah/Sally Cushing, widow of Christopher Whipple, married a second time to Ezekiel Whipple. Do you think that Sarah Whipple (9769) and Sarah Cushing (10137) are the same person?"
      (The Whipple Website's response: "Yes!"
