I am in need of some help, my great grandmother was Katy Tipton 1895-1976 born in Missouri, I have been able to track her father, James T Tipton, 1871- 1936, his father Thomas J Tipton 1842-1906 and his father, James Andrew Tipton 1819-1901 who was born in Blount county Tennessee but died in Benton County, Missouri. I have trouble after that. I was hoping you might have more information on James\\’ father and, I believe it might be Meshac Tipton but am not sure.

Looking for family of Landon Christopher Tipton

This query created by Terry Lynn Stuard.

Recently my aunt passed away and we found an old family bible from the 1800\’s for Landon Christopher Tipton. It has all the children births recorded as well as his death. I am trying to locate family to return the Bible to. We do not have any Tipton\’s in our family so I am not sure how my aunt came into possession of this Bible.

Cissel/Cesley/Cisley/ Sisley Tipton

This query created by Ann Tipton Clemment.

Greetings, kinfolk! I am at a bit of a brick wall. I think I may have discovered some data but it is mostly vague. I am seeking hard data on through whom my line runs. This is the current certain data:
My father, Donald Darrell Tipton, b. 1931,
my grandfather, James Travis Tipton, b. 1896,
my g-grandfather, George Washington Tipton b. 1859,
my gg-grandfather, Cissel/Cesley/Cisley/Sisley Bryant/Obrien/Briant/ Tipton, b 1818 0r 1828.
There is not any more hard data on who Cissel\’s father was, and the only real clue is that his first name is supposed to have been his g-grandmother\’s maiden name and his middle name is supposed to have been his grandmother\’s maiden name. It may be one generation closer, or one further. Stuck here. Any information out there? I would love to make contact. Please let me know if you are researching the same line. Thanks for your help!

Ann or Nancy Ann Tipton m. Henry Leaf 1798

This query created by Deborah J Leef.

I am researching the Leaf Leef family of Maryland and Delaware. I am having trouble verifying Ann\’s proper name. Perhaps they are two different wives. Most importantly, I am trying to obtain and verify the names, dates of birth and death, and any available documentation of their children.
