My name is Valerie del Bosque. I am descended from Abner through his grandson Ernest Pippin. I have quite a few pictures of Joe Pippin and his children that I am willing to share with anybody who would like to have a copy. I was wondering if I could get a copy of the pic of Abner that is on the web site. It is a great picture! Bill, I think you know my grandfather, Lynn Pippin in Groesbeck.

12/30/2010 Linda Hall  

My name is Linda Hall, for Christmas this year I started researching our family tree for my mother. I was very lucky and met a relative on ancestry. com that had alot of information on my mother's (mother's) side of the family. However I do not know much about my mom's dad's family. A few names, my mother's parents divorced when she was young and she and her dad and dad's side of the did not stay very connected. Now the Christmas is over I told her I would do what I could to find out about her dad and his family. I just came across this website and saw a post dated 5/15/08 from someone named Carolyne in Oregon. I did not see and email address for her and from what she has posted it appears she and my mother may be  half sisters. Her grandparents and her dad's name are the same as my mother's and her dad also had 6 brothers. The birth and death dates all match as well. If you have anyway to contact this person I would appreciate if you would let me know, or contact her to see if she minds you giving me an address to contact her. This could be a different group of Pippin's - I have no idea. Thank you for any help you can provide. Linda Hall

My grandmother was Esther Pippin, born in or around Greenville Texas March 17, 1899. Her father was Oscar H. Pippin, and was supposed to have been born in Virginia, and died in Los Angeles March 9, 1957. His mother's name may have been Cally. Does anyone have more information on Oscar Pippin? Any relation to your family? Thanks for any help.

05/25/2009 Doug Pippin I'm a descendant of Richard William Pippin born in Maryland in 1788 (married to Elizabeth Hobbs) and settled in Indiana or Illinois.
I was born in Saskatoon Saskatchewan, grew up in Woodstock Ontario. In 1963 I moved to the Detroit, MI area where I worked until I retired in 1998. In 2000 I moved to Western North Carolina and now live in Henderson county (Fletcher post office) between Asheville and Hendersonville.
I first learned of the Tarboro Pippin family reunion earlier this year from my cousin Bert Rose who lives in Iqaluit, Nunavut (Canada)

I'll be attending the Pippin Reunion in Tarboro in a couple of weeks and was looking around the web site for information.
I noticed that there were copies of a book "John Pippen: A New Beginning in Maryland" available at the 2008 reunion and would be interested in purchasing this book if it's still available preferably at the 2009 reunion.

Fort Mill, SC Are there any members of your family that spell their name Phippen?  I heard of the upcoming family reunion and was wondering if we are related.

Colby, John, Brock & Bill,
Thanks for all the hard work you did for the 2007 reunion.  It was very enjoyable and informative.  For anyone considering attending,  it was well worth the trip!  Also, the website with the photos looks great.  Hope to see you all next year.  Thanks again, Jill Pippen Saric

08/09/07 Phyllis Stallins Colorado
Jolene Ahrens is my cousin, my mother was Dorothy L. (Pippin ) German.  As I understand it, we are related through a Hill Pippin, although I am not sure there is confirmation of that.  The Hill Pippin family ended up in Missouri.  I thoroughly enjoyed the website and will continue to look at it.  I may even try to attend the next reunion, I would love to see that part of the country. Thanks for the photos, I sure enjoyed them.
08/01/07 Penny Smith Greensboro, Maryland
Thank you so much for the time that you have spent in developing this website. It is so important that our decendants know their heritage. I live a few miles from Centreville, Md, where our ancestors began their new lives. My Pippin roots are all around me. I intend to always be around them. I hope to attend the reunion someday. Thanks again. Well done.
02/24/07 Alan Pippin Florida panhandle
I am Alan Pippin from the Florida panhandle. I enjoyed your site. I have a small collection of unorganized documentation of the Pippin heritage. Some of Solomon Pippin III (my gr gr gr great uncle) relatives made their final descent (and resting place) here in the panhandle. Solomon III was born in 1783 and died in 1855. His headstone has been incredibly preserved. I plan to go back and take pictures. I will be glad to send them to you for your website if you wish. I already have some other pictures of old Pippin  graves that I took at Pippin Cemetery in Clarksville Florida. I will be glad to e-mail them to you if you wish. It would be nice if other Pippin / Pippen descendants could send you info to post on your site for all to access. 
We own a small piece of property in western north carolina and hope to go up this summer.  We will think about possibly planning a trip around the time of the 07 Pippen / Pippin reunion.
01/28/07 Chris Pippin Glenview, Illinois The information on this site is great - thanks! Hope to be part of this year's reunion.
