I have been researching my Tipton roots since 1978. With the help of many, I'm on the brink of connecting to the Col. John Tipton line, through John Butler Tipton. Many of you will find out that the Georgia, and the Alabama lines are the hardest ones to track through. Good luck to all, and if you have any suggestions or hints please contact me. I have the "WE Tiptons and Our Kin" book and "Tipton, the First Five Generations". These are both very good reference books. The first book mentioned does contain some errors, but has a good framework for many of the Tiptons.
