I have been looking up my ancestry for four about 10 years, still have missing links, which I guess can be expected due to variety of reasons, but I am still looking for historical connections and answers if available. Not one to give up on anything when the possibilities exist. persistence I guess pays off some times. The Whipple name at one time was difficult to search for, but over the years much has come to light. I can go back as far as 1842 with my Grandfather, but have never found out much on him..dead end for some reason. I want to find out as much as I can, while Iam still able.
