The Whipple House in Cochran, Georgia

Bennett Whipple recently submitted these two photos of the former home of Dr. Robert Lafayette Whipple. The home is now the property of the First Baptist Church of Cochran. The church named it "The Whipple House" in his honor.

Possible Leads on the Ancestry of Captain John Whipple of Rhode Island?

Two weeks ago I received an email from Dr. Charles M. Whipple, fellow descendant of Captain John Whipple. Charles has published a number of books on his Whipple ancestry, most recently A History of Captain John and Sarah Whipple of Dorchester, Massachusetts and Providence: Rhode Island: A Multigenerational Study of the First Whipple Family in America. (The book is mentioned at the Whipple Books website; it is still available for purchase at the publisher's web site. Charles has his own page on the Whipple Website, at whipple.org/charles.)
