Tom, I don't know where the name Tipe came from but I believe he's the same Josiah Kantner who is found in 1850 in Cass Twp. (roll 827/Pg. 057) and in 1870 in Blythe Twp.: Josiah Kantner, 56, boss at mines Lizzie, 58 Jefferson, 19, above ground labor George, 9 Harriet, 6 Benjamin, 4. Which child do you connect to?
