Re: John Thomas Kyplaine (Kyplain)
John Kipling can be found in Isle a la Crosse in the 1881 census. He is almost certainly the son of Thomas Kipling of Manitoba, who is the grandson of a John Kipling from England employed by the Hudson's Bay Company from 1766. I would be interested in exchanging information on this family, especially anyone still in toch with the Kyplains of Saskatchewan today (as I would love to find a male Kiplian to do a DNA test to, hopefully,prove the theory).
