Hi Robert! Nice to meet more kin.
On the family group sheet documented and prepared by Paul Wilkinson, I have an
Elijah Tippens b. 1814, Belmont, Co. OH d. 1898, Slate, Wirt Co, WV who married
Charlotte King b. 1819 (possibly OH), d. 1867 in Monroe Co. OH who's mother is listed as Wells (who I believe is Elizabeth Wells).
Elijah and Charlotte were found to be living in Belmont, Monroe counties; Lebenon, Bethel TWP,OH; and Tyler and Wirt counties, WV. Mr. Wilkinson told me in conversation that Charlotte's father was named Shadrack (sp?). I recently found info on Meshach and Shadrach here on this website. However, I would like to be able to _document_ Charlotte's parents and ancestors.
I think it was reported by a Tippens descendant that there was Mohawk lineage in the Wells family but if it's true at all, I'm more willing to suspect King, being that it is a common surname amongst those people even today. Maybe someone could advise.
Waiting eagerly for the list of Shadrach's descendants and any other info pertinent to this family.
