Georgia Whipple Reunion Reminder

Anne Murphey sends a reminder regarding the July 10th Whipple Reunion at Jekyll Island, Georgia (announced earlier on the Whipple Blog):
We're pleased over the interest shown by all you Whipples (by whatever name) in attending Fielding's July 10 birthday party at Jekyll Island and, yes, it's also a time for family reunion.
It's not too late for you to be there, too. There are a few rooms left at the Hampton Inn, so call Mimi by June 8 for the $159 group rate at (912) 635-3733 and make your reservation. Many of us are spending Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
To make reservations for Sunday's birthday buffet luncheon at the Jekyll Island Club, mail your check by June 28 payable to "Anne Murphey" to Jonathan Alderman, PO Box 6497, Macon, GA 31208-6497. (For Adults - $20 and $10 for children ages 3 - 11.)
No gifts, of course, but you may send a birthday greeting to Amy Alderman at jonamya@gmail.com for his birthday scrapbook.
We're looking forward to seeing all of you at Jekyll.

Josephine G. Whipple

I realized today that I haven't posted here for over a month. It occurred to me that I might want to post (selected?) photos that are submitted to the Whipple Website. This is a photo of Miss Josephine G. Whipple (in the Whipple Genweb at http://whipple.org/120030). The photo will appear at the top of her page within the next week.

The 1900 census gives her birth in September 1836 in Massachusetts. She was living in Boston at the time of the 1920 census.
