Hello Donald, I just noticed your posting re. Hipple's in Pottstown. I have been working on Hipple family in Marietta, Lancaster. I am led to believe that SOMEHOW these Hipple families are related to the surnames CLARK/CLARKIN and REINHART.From a letter I have written back in 1964, the person wrote that Annie Mary Reinhart b. 1833 married a "Clark or Clarkin" and moved to Pottstown.Somehow the Hipple family merged with them. I have no idea who or how or when.What names/dates re. Hipple's are you researching? The Marietta/ Hipple families seem to have a Maxwell b. 1838;Aaron b. 1852;John b. 1850;Ulysses Grant Hipple b. 1865; Sarah (widow) b. 1846; Benton b. 1859; Franklin b. 1829; Isiaia b. 1833; Charles/ b 1858; Henrietta (widow) b. 1844 Let me know if any of these Hipple's might belong to your family in Pottstown.
