Charles Henry Whipple, born 28 Feb 1847 in Bradford, PA, appears in Smithfield, Bradford in 1850, with Leroy and Huldah; unknown 1860 but George and Huldah are found in Springfield, Bradford, PA; Faribault, Foster, MN in 1870 with Leroy and Huldah; Lake Eunice, Becker, MN in 1880 with first wife Mary A [Lee] and brother George; Lake Eunice, Becker, MN in 1885 with Mary A; as a Civil War veteran in 1890 Detroit, Becker, MN (33 Co. NY Ind. Bat. Aug 1863-Apr 1865); 1895 in Detroit, Becker, MN with 2nd wife Sophia Benson of Sweden; in 1900 Detroit, Becker, MN with Sophia, 1905 in Detroit, Becker, MN with Sophia; in 1910 Touchet, Columbia, Washington State with Sophia, and in 1920 in Dayton, Columbia, WA with Sophia. His Washington Death Record (3 Nov 1928 Dayton, Columbia, Washington) indicates his father's name is "Geo. L. Whipple", his mother "unknown". Family tradition holds that his father was George Leroy Whipple and that his mother was not Huldah, but rather George Leroy's first wife who died within a few years of Charles Henry Whipple's birth. And that George Leroy Whipple then married Huldah not long before the 1850 census. We don't know much about Charles H Whipple's mother. Our only clues are that in the 1895 census he indicated that she was foreign born, and in 1900 he indicated she was from Germany. Having never known her, he often claimed Huldah as his mother. Where have you found Augustus as Leroy's middle name?
