Tipton Family Association of America

Tipton Family Crest

Welcome to our family’s website.
If this is your first visit, we are so glad you found us!

We hope you enjoy We Tiptons and Our Kin

The purpose of the TFAA is to provide an organization whereby Tiptons and Tipton descendants can be connected to the family as a whole and each member individually through presenting our collective history and personal queries on members’ individual genealogical quests.

The Tipton family was instrumental in several historical events and were pioneers of several States and counties such as; Cades Cove, Tipton IN, Tipton TN, Elizabethton TN and much more!

We are seeking Tiptons and Tipton descendants to inform you about, and invite each of you to, our annual Tipton family meetings and reunions.


Questions? Please contact:

The TFAA publishes newsletters periodically during the year and a family meeting is held on the Saturday in October of the Columbus Day weekend.

The above “Tipton Family Research Group” has been created for those of us who descend from Jonathan Tipton (c1659-1757). The purpose of the group is to share genealogical information and help each other determine our direct Tipton line or lines. It will also provide the opportunity to share significant or interesting information about our Tipton ancestors.
In order to be respectful of the site, its purpose, and its members, please post only information pertaining to Tipton history and Tipton genealogy. Please do not use the site for posting political comments, recipes, photographs of pets, advertisements of businesses, products, and yard sales, or anything that would not be considered “good taste.” Of course, photos of Tipton descendants are always welcome. The administrator retains the right to remove anything that is not appropriate or suitable or that may be offensive to the members.
This is a closed/private group with membership by invitation. If you wish to become a member of the group, please ask to be invited and include your lineage from your earliest known descendant of Jonathan Tipton (c1659-1757). NO ONE IS ADDED TO THE GROUP UNTIL HE/SHE ANSWERS THE THREE QUESTIONS REQUIRED FOR MEMBERSHIP. Also, you must be willing to share your lineage with us so that we may include you in our descendants’ list. We look forward to having many Tipton descendants who are interested in Tipton genealogy and history.
The creation of this site was approved by the Tipton Family Association of America (TFAA) at its 2017 fall meeting.
