CRIPPEN 1915 B. T.:
8. CRIPPEN. Thomas CRIPPEN had wife Frances; he died 1705; lived during early life in Falmouth, Mass. Wanted parents of Frances and list of Thomas's children, also his ancestry.

(9477) 1. CRIPPEN. Wanted, list of wives and children of John CRIPPEN, Jr., born July 23, 1743, in Sharon, Conn. Have been told he had three wives and children by them all. His oldest son's name was Ichabod. Think some of this family resided near Albany, N.Y. He was oldest son of John CRIPPEN Sr., born 1720, and Mary RICHMOND, of Sharon, Conn.
2. CRIPPEN. Wanted, parentage of William CRIPPEN, born May 8, 1773, married in 1796 Contect STANDISH, born Oct. 24, 1776. Lived in Penfield, Monroe Co., N.Y. in 1823. Think he came to Penfield from Pennsylvania, perhaps Warren County. – W. I. C.

7. CRIPPEN. Ancestry wanted of John CRIPPEN of Albany County, N.Y., name of wife and her ancestry; also Revolutionary service of John CRIPPEN.

11. CRIPPEN, ACKLEY. Thomas2 CRIPPEN (Thomas1) married, before 1696, Mary2 ACKLEY (Nicholas1) of East Haddam. Goodwin gives their children as, Thomas, Elizabeth and Hannah. Were these all? Knowledge of any added family will be appreciated. Thomas2 CRIPPEN had a sister Experience and that name persists in the CRIPPEN and allied families of this section, and creates the query as to whether Experience — wife of Benjamin3 ACKLEY (John2, Nicholas1) may be of CRIPPEN origin. If she were the daughter of Thomas2 and Mary (ACKLEY) CRIPPEN above, she would be first cousin of Benjamin3 ACKLEY, and of the same locality and approximately the same age. — M.W.F.

(6124.) Is anything known of the ancestry of Thomas CRIPPEN of Falmouth, Mass., and later of Haddam, Conn.? His inventory was taken in 1709. – H. S. F. C.

Boston Transcript, Sept. 27, 1937
Indexed under the surname "RICHMOND" was the following:
G.F.C. Jan. 23, 1937
(3436.) 1. RICHMOND, CRIPPEN, WHITING. John CRIPPEN, born March 20, 1720, son of Jabez and Thankful (FULLER) CRIPPEN, married Aug. 10, 1741, at Sharon, Conn., Mary RICHMOND. Ancestry wanted of this Mary RICHMOND.
John CRIPPEN Jr. son of John and Mary (RICHMOND) CRIPPEN was their oldest child, born about 1742-3.
An old record, written over 100 years ago, says that this John CRIPPEN, Jr. had three wives, and had children by them all. Can someone give the names of any of these wives, and names of children? This John gave Revolutionary service, as did his oldest son, Ichabod, born Aug. 3, 1765 (the only child whose name I know).
Ichabod married Sept. 18 1783, at Spencertown, N.Y. Mary WHITING born Aug. 25, 1765, daughter of John WHITING. Data wanted on this John WHITING. Did he give Revolutionary service?
