But if I have died to win the approbation of my contemporaries and to be of benefit to those with whom I have been associated, I can look with complacency on the signs of the closing day and so to my rest content.” (Speech made by E.P. Ripley on his 70th birthday.) (bio by: David M. Habben)  Family links:  Spouse:  Frances E Harding Ripley (1843 – 1931)*  Children:  Frances Ripley Willard (1874 – 1949)* *Calculated relationship
