I have been able to find out that her father was John Tippens married to Elinor Weems. and John's father was Henry Tippens married to Diana Layton. Abigail and Alexander died in Buleson, Tx, and are buried at the Providence Cemetery.I hope you still can get this message, since your posting is dated 2001. I would love to hear all that you know about the Tippens.
