His name is what I am trying to find out. I hoped your book might have it - but, thanks a lot for looking, anyway.
No it was the only marriage for each of them. I do know that.
There were Zipps near Abilene and Merkel in 1880 - so I am thinking it may be that family. The Austin, TX genealogy books of death show a Mary Zipps who died in Callahan Co, TX but Lizzie did not go by her 1st or middle name. She went by Lizzie Zipps so I am not sure it is my great-aunt.
Thanks again - and if you come across a BARKER marriage to a ZIPPS - please, please let me know. Thx!
