This query created by Laura Ellis Lefler.

Hello! I’m looking for any information about David M.C. Tipton’s father, Reverend Wiley Tipton that anyone might have. Rev. Wiley Tipton was born about 1812 and married Isabel Whitson. They lived in Yancey County, North Carolina. Wiley may have died in Yancey County or East Tennessee.

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.
