Dear Tiffany My gggrandfather was name Silas Rippon. I have found it spelled Rippon and Rippeon. He fought in the Civil war. I can give you page has all the battles he fought in. Plus he had two brothers names Winfield Scott and George W.These two brothers were in the calvary. They sign up to fight at the same time in Frederick Md. Their mother name was Mary Jane Rippeon and her father was William and her mother was Rachel Ruth. I hope this will be of help to both of us.
