Linda David Thorp's genealogy is indeed the same Nipes family of your in-laws to whom I am also related. Your father-in-law is/was my father's cousin and his father originated in New Jersey before moving to Florida in the early 1900's. I have researched David's line and he and I have found some missing Siblings. I am working on backing up from there to a point north of East Riding where I suspect the family moved from and were known as "Knipe" at that time. If you want more information or a family tree, I (or my cousin Mary Ann Nipe Gold) can provide.
