Query about Bishop Whipple's Long Case Clock

I just received an email from Wendy Evans, Director of the Ipswich (Massachusetts) Historical Society & Museums, asking about a clock once owned by Bishop Henry Benjamin Whipple of Minnesota. (He was elected the first Episcopal Bishop of Minnesota in 1859.)

Here is the text of her email:
An art researcher named Gloria Gray Witt called on Thursday seeking information on a 1770 long-case clock once owned by Henry Benjamin Whipple. In 1859 the clock went to Minnesota and it was sold with the estate.

She described it as 84 inches tall, 17 inches wide, with a beautifully carved image of the old man of the sea. She is seeking information about the clock for a woman in Texas.

Gloria's contact info: 951-929-2343. Long distance, so you can telephone her and she will call you back.

Address: 25878 Columbia Street, Hemet, California 92544.
