I have info on the Hippe side.Paul was my grandmother's cousin.
My grandmother was Hazel Lois Hippe (TAPP).
Her father was Carl Frederick Hippe.His brother I believe was Frederick Hippe who was Paul's father.
Carl & Fred's father was Christian Frederick Hippe. Their Homstead was between Seward and Garland (Germantown), NE. Part of the old house still exists. Carl manned the homestead later on after his mother moved to Lincoln with his sister.The mother's name was Wilhelmina Jaeger (HIPPE).Christian died early in his adult life when he was struck by lighting on the homestead while finishing up plowing. My grandmother told me that her grandmother only knew how to speak german and was not a very kind woman.She was a very harsh and didn't show love.
I have Wilhelmina's funeral book along with pictures not of her and Christian but of some of the other family members.
I am curious to know if there are any other pictures out there and if there are any of Christian and Wilhelmina.
I have more info so please respond if you have any questions.
