  • Notes 
    • "Elder John Whipple, [...who] was a clothier (cloth manufacturer) of good estate, emigrated with his children to New England about 1638 and settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Here he became a man of local distinction, holding the offices of deacon and elder in the Ipswich Church, and serving as deputy of the Massachusetts General Court in 1640, 1641, 1642, 1646, 1650, 1651, 1652, and 1653. About 1640 he built a subtantial frame dwelling house in Ipswich which still remains in its ancient form and fine preservation, one of the oldest houses in New England, and is now owned and occupied by the Ipswich Historical Society." [Simon Stone Genealogy]

      Ancestor to, among others, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Calvin Coolidge, Robert Goddard, James Russell Lowell, Charles Pratt (founder of the Pratt Institute), William Whipple (a signer of the Declaration of Independence), and Brigham Young.
