Eva Tipton

Hello,
My grandmother Augusta Miller (maiden name) always told me that our family had once owned the Tipton Farm in Cades Cove. I have tried to trace the tree back but it gets confusing because of all the same names. I know that her mothers name was Eva Tipton who married Noah Miller both of which died and my grandmother was raised by her grandmother (who they called granny Tipton) I could never find any other link to the Tipton’s other than my great grandmother Eva. Can anyone please help?
Thank you,
Mike Hembree

Sarah E. Stover Tipton

Sarah E. Stover Tipton was my great grandaunt.  She was my great grandmother’s older sister. I have a family portrait that includes my great grandparents and three of their children, including my grandfather. There are two other women in the portrait. I believe one is Sarah’s mother Joanna Gaines and I believe one of the individuals is Sarah E. Stover Tipton. Sarah married Winfield Scott Tipton on 15 November 1870 in Elizabethton, TN. I would like to post this portrait and inquire if any of your members can confirm the identification of Sarah E. Stover Tipton.

I don’t know that I qualify for membership in your group. Please let me know if you can help.

I am writing a biography of Sarah for my family history blog and hope to have it published in the Watauga Association of Genealogists Bulletin. I want to publish the photo of Sarah but would like confirmation of my identification.

Thank you for your consideration.

Thank You!

I recently found out through Ancestry DNA that I’m a descendant of the Tipton family, until my great grandmother, Mary Magdalene Tipton, married my great grandfather. As a retired soldier, it is humbling to see the military accomplishments of our ancestors and I wanted to say thank you for preserving all of this information so that it may be passed down.

Research on Charlotte Tipton (1816-1865)

From: Laura Anderson <lauraferrisanderson@yahoo.com>

Subject: Research on Charlotte Tipton (1816-1865)

Dear TFAA,
I am researching our family geneology and am hoping to find more information on our family ancestors.  My husband’s 4th GG James Anderson married Charlotte “Lotty” Tipton in 1846 in Blount County, TN,  She appears to have been previously married to Pryor Nance.  In further, James’ grandfather Daniel Anderson was listed as a member of Capt. Tipton’s Company in early settler lists for East TN.  Hoping you may be willing to share any records or information on Charlotte Tipton as well as the Daniel Anderson line.

Many thanks, Laura Anderson.

The Early Settlement of Antis Township

THE EARLY SETTLEMENT OF ANTIS TOWNSHIP
By Larry D. Smith, 150th Anniversary of Blair County, PA, pages 262-269

I. Daniel Rupp’s book included a small paragraph on the village of Davidsburg. It was noted as a village west of the Brush Mountain, in Antes Township, lying along the west bank of the Little Juniata River. At that time the village was noted as containing approximately eight houses, a store, a tavern and a tan-yard.

The village of Bell’s Mills grew up around the gristmill, sawmill and store, which Edward Bell established along the Bell’s Gap Run in the east-central portion of the township about the year 1800. John Bell emigrated from Scotland in 1763 and arrived in Virginia. He then proceeded by boat to Nova Scotia. There he met and married (in 1765) Elizabeth Hunter, an immigrant from Ayrshier, Scotland. The Bells made their way southward, eventually settling in the Hartslog settlement in Huntingdon County. They resided there between 1767 and 1769. In 1767 Edward Bell was born while the family was at Hartslog settlement. John and Elizabeth bore three other children: Margaret, born in 1767 and later married to Robert Edington; Mary (or Polly), who was born in 1772 and later married Caleb Tipton; and Jane (or Elizabeth), who was born in 1774 and married John Glasgow.
