The Ancestors and Descendants of Julia Annis Tipton of Cades Cove
We, the descendants of Julia Annis Tipton welcome you to our web site.
A special thanks to Wanda “WJ” Tipton for her contributions on the Tiptons.
The information on this site represents thirty five years of her life spent documenting and compiling information on the TIPTON surname. Wanda documented the local Tiptons herself and used various books and articles found in Blount County Public Library and other sources for information on the historical Tiptons that helped make The United States of America a nation – and there were many! Anyone descended from Jonathan Tipton I as well as anyone carrying the TIPTON surname can be proud of the ancestral heritage handed down by this remarkable family.
On December 26, 2004 Ms Wanda was taken to the hospital because of chest pains. Not only did she learn that she had had a heart attack, she also learned that she had terminal cancer, and possibly only a few months to live. In March, 2005, she consented to honoring our family by spending her last days with us. She presented us with this, her life’s genealogical work, so it would not be lost. We feel this is the best way to preserve her work and make it available to the greatest number of people. We lost Ms Wanda in the early morning hours of August 11, 2005. She was a blessing to our family in the few years we got to spend with her and every member of our extended families dearly loved her.
