The life of John Jacob Whipple from the time of his birth and when he settled in the States

Contributor: bwdraper Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

My father, John Jacob Whipple, was born April 3rd of 1899 In Colonia Juarez, Chihuahua Mexico. He was the first child born to Charles Whipple and Mary Louise Walser. He was born into a polygamist family. My grandfather’s first wife was Annie Catherine Hansen and she already had four children when my father was born to his second wife—Mary Louise Walser. When he was eleven the two families in the little Mormon colony along with the other members of the church were driven out of Mexico by the forces of Poncho Villa. They arrived in El Paso, Texas in very dire circumstances; almost destitute. Aunt Caddi was extremely ill and was admitted to a hospital as soon as they arrived. This left Mary Louse with children from both families; they—at this time—had a total of 14 dollars between the two families. Charles had been asked to stay behind in Mexico to help others receive sanctuary. While they were in El Paso Mary gave birth to a daughter, Eva. Shortly after that her son, Marvin, died. As with the early saints leaving Nauvoo, life was not easy for these saints. When Charles joined them he moved the families to Arizona in the Show Lo, Snowflake area. They lived on a ranch for at least two years when Mary Louise started to miss home, so Charles took her and her children back to Mexico where she could be with her family. Here she had another son named Alma. Mary Louise died when he was six months old. They had very good friends by the name of Ted and Christine Solomon wanted to adopt the baby because they weren’t able to have children. Charles said they could raise Alma but they couldn’t adopt him and change his name. They raised him to adult hood. The children came back out to Arizona where Charles was killed in a tragic accident. He was hauling logs with a wagon and the horses were frightened by an automobile and the wagon was overturned. Which left all of their children to be orphans. John and Louise, the two oldest, did all they could to keep the family together with the help of Charles’s first wife which the called Aunt Caddy. Aunt Caddi had a son named Charles who was very close to John. John and Charles rode the rails to California to try and find work. They were without sums so a kindly Sherriff allowed them to spend the night in Jail were they could sleep. Ruth, one of John’s younger sisters, tells a story about how excited they were when Johnny came home with a bright shiny penny for all of them. During this time he met and fell in love with Emma Ramsay. He went back to Mexico to make a living working in apple orchards. While he was there he decided he couldn’t live without Emma, so he sent her money to take a train from Holbrook, Arizona to El Paso, Texas where he would meet her. They met in El Paso and were married at the home of his cousin Willard Whipple by Bishop Arlo Pierce. They went back to Mexico, unfortunately the apple crop failed that year and they returned to Arizona where their first child John Waldo was born prematurely and lived for only nine days. -Told from my grandmother Anneva Whipple McCain

Life timeline of John J Whipple

1899
John J Whipple was born in 1899
John J Whipple was 4 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
John J Whipple was 18 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
John J Whipple was 21 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
John J Whipple was 40 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
