The vast majority of Whipples in America are descendants of immigrants to Dorchester (1632) and Ipswich (1638), Massachusetts.
Other American Whipples include:
- Descendants of George Whipple of Baden-Baden (in present-day Germany), who appeared in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana, after immigrating in 1844. The Whipple Website has no information about George’s origins.
- A Joseph Whipple, born in Germany in about 1839, immigrated to the U.S. in 1860 according to the 1900 U.S. Census of Ridgefield, Township, Huron County, Ohio. The person he would later marry–Elizabeth Heyman, also born in Germany according to the 1900 U.S. Census–immigrated as a seven-year-old to the U.S. from Germany in 1860 as well. They married in 1880 and had six children in the following 20 years.
- Robert Eugene Whipple is thought to have come from County Cork, Ireland, to Philadelphia, then to North Carolina and Tennessee through Virginia.
- Numerous other “disconnected” Whipples are listed on the “Disconnected Whipples” page of the Whipple Website.
