This page lists heads of descendancy trees that don't (yet) trace their ancestry back to either of the following early Whipples:
The list does (still) include the George Whipple who immigrated to the U.S. from Baden-Baden (in the present-day German state of Baden Württemberg) in 1844. The Whipple Website should probably recognize him officially as the head of a third distinct branch.
The list also includes Robert Eugene Whipple, purportedly of County Cork, Ireland, who could (maybe) become a fourth distinct American group of Whipples.
It also includes U.K. Whipples (mainly gleaned from the 1881 U.K. Census). So far, we have no connections between them and the Bishop's Stortford/Bocking Whipples
The following are the heads of disconnected Whipple descendancy "trees." Whipples born in England (or the present-day United Kingdon) are marked with before their name. If you have evidence that adds connections for any of the Whipples below, please notify the Webmaster. (Please likewise report typos or broken links to the Webmster.)
Charles Rutledge Whipple [probably] belongs in this family [of Andrew Boulware Whipple, great grandson of a Rutledge who was the sister of the governor of South Carolina] somewhere. The Southern Collegian published by Washington and Lee University, where Charles attended 1872-73, published a memoriam upon his death and notes as follows. He came from Virginia where he had taught at the McGuire School in Richmond and where he was also the editor and publisher of a political newspaper, The Intelligencer. From there he commenced to study law in 1875-76 at the University of Virginia, subsequently opening a law office in Richmond and shortly thereafter he became the Secretary to the Office of Governor (Virginia). Charles went to Nashville in July of 1880 to pursue work as a journalist. He died from a sudden illness in Nashville, Tennessee November 24, 1880, age 26. The University of Virginia lists him as born 1852 d 1880. --B. Huckins, 2 May 2008.
