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 Tipton 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!

AGENDA for FRIDAY, Oct. 11th

We are changing Friday 11th’s dinner from a covered dish to a spaghetti dinner.

Bring Drink to Share

Bring a Chair

1861 Moody Farm Rd.
Maggie Valley, NC 28751

Due to several things, I figured that it would just be better if I (Kathy) and a couple of other family members just made spaghetti, salad, bread etc. The parks will NOT allow anyone to stay in the area after DARK so the time had to be moved to 5pm. This gives us 2 hours at the park. If we need more story telling time, then we can all gather on the porch at the INN. Thank you all again and I look forward to seeing you all.
