John W. Tippen/ Elizabeth Castleberry born SC move to Ala
I thought I'd get a forum started for the Tippen family. I hope that all with this name spelling version of Tippin, Tippens, etc will post inqueries here occasionally.
My gr gr grandfather was John Wesley Tippen, son of William Tippen. He was born 1811 in Pendleton District, South Carolina. John married Elizabeth Castleberry and they later moved to Tennessee and then settled in Sumter County, Alabama where John owned land and died in 1857. His wife and children moved to Louisiana and lived there permenantly.
I'm hoping to obtain a copy of William Tippen's will in South Carolina and also hoping to eventually find John's burial place in Alabama. Also hope to correspond with some of the Castleberry family.
