Starts on pg. 72 Under CHESTER HALE SIPE “Through his interest in history and his talents as a writer he is the author of several highly interesting works, among them: “Mount Vernon and the Washington Family,” The Indian Chiefs of Pennsylvania,” “The Indian Wars of Pennsylvania,” and the “History of Butler County,” the two latter being published in 1927...In this connection we learn of the work he accomplished in placing the Washington Marker on Buhl’s Hill, which borders the Evans City-Connoquenssing Road...Considerable interest was aroused and eventually former Judge Reiber, CAPTAIN JAMES A. McKEE and Mr. Sipe were appointed a committee for the erection of the marker.
Despite the burden of professional and official duties, Senator Sipe has been active in the social affairs of his surroundings.He is a member of the Sterling Club of Butler, and fraternizes with the Order of Free and Accepted Masons; the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Knights of Pythias, and the Patrons of Husbandry, generally known as the Farmers Grange.
On February 18, 1925, Senator Sipe married CLEOPATRA V. McKEE, daughter of the HON. DR. J. W. and AMANDA (KING) McKEE of Armstrong County, where her father was a prominent physician and public official, having served several terms in the State Legislature.”
