ReturnBio and Will Notes for LAWRENCE HIPPLE: WILL: Directs that real estate is to be sold "when the younger sons are of age and divided between them" No record has been found of his having owned any real estate, but in 1797 about one and one-half years after the probate of this will, the four sons in question are deeded a tract of land in Vincent, subject "to any claim upon said land under the will of Lawrence Hipple". Later, what appears to be the same tract, is charged with the widow's dowry, proving that it must have been the property of her husband. LAND: On April 1, 1812, Lawrence Hipple, his son, innkeeper and wife Mary, George Hipple, blacksmith and wife Rachel, Jacob Hipple stonemason, and wife Susannah, and Abrham Hipple, miller, and wife Elizabeth, all of Chester County made a deed to Henry Miller, of Vincent Township, said county, for apart of a plantation of 183 acres 90 perches, which Thomas Willing of Phila., gentleman, conveyed to them April 4, 1797." Numerous other deeds follow by the same parties, and on April 6, 1843, upon the death of Rosina Root, a release and receipt for the balance to secure her dowry is signed and recorded July 29, 1845.
