Dallas Benjamin Whipple, D.D.S., son of Benjamin and Pamelia (Marsh)
Whipple, was born in New Hudson Oct. 11, 1844, where Benjamin Whipple
settled in 1830 and died Aug. 3, 1889. His children were Harriet (Mrs.
Hiram Gleason of Belfast), Dr. Prescott of Chicago, Mary L. (died in
Flint, Mich., in 1847, leaving 2 sons), Dr. Otis of Olean, Dallas B.,
Royal (a farmer on the New Hudson homestead) and Dr. Gardner of Cuba.
D.B. Whipple practiced dentistry in Cuba and Olean, and in 1877 became
an oil operator on Kendall Creek, Pa., and founded Dallas City. In 1881
he operated in Richburg and later Clarksville. In 1882 he purchased a
farm in the village which he stocked with that famous herd of
Holstein-Friesian cattle, known as "The family of Pieterje 2d," 9see
another page). Mr Whipple then began breeding American trotting horses
and was the firs man in the county to own a Hambletonian stallion. In
1891 he sold the stallion "Egthorne." whose record was 2.12 1/2, and now
owns some of his progeny. (This is the fastest stallion record in the
state.) Mr. Whipple possesses the true instincts of a breeder.
He has filled all the "chairs" in his Odd Fellows lodge and is a
Freemason. He has been village trustee, president of the Valley Point
Agricultural and Mechanical Society for two years, vice president of the
Western New York Agricultural Society and vice president of the Elmira
Exposition. He was the organizer of the "D.B. Whipple Protectives" fire
company of Cuba.
Mr. Whipple married Oct. 24, 1865, Eliza J., daughter of Abraham L. and
Olive (Randolph) Flinn. Children, George D., born March 10, 1868, and
Maud E., born Sept. 30, 1874. Through her mother, Mrs. Whipple is a
lineal descendant of John Randolph of Virginia.
