My great,great,great grandfather was Kinchen Tipper who married Nancy Harrel in Wake Co., N.Carolina on Jan., 28, 1807. Silas Tipper also had a son named William Silas who married a Nan Richardson and a Sophronia Richardson. I am not sure which one was the mother of John Wesley Tipper who was mygrandfather. John Wesley married Eliza Alice Larwood who I believe was Nancy Louisa's sister. They had six children, the youngest being my father, John Wesley Tipper Jr. They came from Lawerenceburg, TN .I just started looking into the Tipper genealogy this week and I am really pleased that I came across your posting. I have some unverified informatioon that Kinchen Tipper's father name was William Tipper. He was born in 1759,where I don't know, and that he served in the Rev.War from 1779-1780 from N.C. Looking forward to hearing your reply.
