I have 1880 for his death date, in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. His wife Patience died before 1880 in Gibson Co., Tennessee. I don't have any info on the cause of their deaths. He was the son of Jesse Flippen and Elizabeth H. White and Jabes was born in Gibson Co., TN abt 1836. I have a copy of a letter he wrote to his brother James in Oregon which I can send you if you are interested & don't already have it. The letter lists him as Jordan H. Flippen, but this is believed to be the same person.
