Whipple, who died Sunday in Underhill, after an illness of one week with pneumonia and complications, was born in Cambridge, Oct. 21, 18??, and spent his early life in that town as a farmer. He married Adelia A. Austin, of Cambridge, in 1853, a son died in infancy, and two daughters were born to them that died in early womanhood, leaving five grandchildren to Mr. and Mrs. Whipple.
He enlisted September 8, 1862 in Company E, 13th Regiment, Vermont Volunteers, where he served as drummer, being promoted to Drum Major June 20, 1863. He was with his regiment at the battle of Gettysburg, and was honorably discharged July 21, 1863.
Later he engaged in hotel business in Cambridge, coming to Underhill in March 1886, when he purchased the Custer House. He was mustered into the Post in 1886, and was always deeply interested in its welfare, having held all its positions of honor and trust, and was serving as as commander at the time of his death. He represented the town in the Legislature in 1896.
He is survived by his grandsons, his wife having died eight years ago. The Grand Army held the services at the home and the Masonic Lodge of Cambridge held there service at the grave.
