2. ANDREW PIPPIN4,7,8,9,10 was born on 1 March 1825 in Jackson County, Tennessee.3 He served in the military in 1861–1864 at Co. B, 28th TN Volunteer Infantry in Civil War. He died on 9 January 1913 at the age of 87 in Jackson County, Tennessee.
Information from family member gave year of marriage to Mollie as 1841; I think this marriage took place later as John Whitley, first child, was born in 1847. The same year is sometimes seen for Mollie's birth but that would be wrong, too. The censuses do not agree on Mollie's year of birth.
Married by Andrew Harpoole. Records lost in fire.
Andrew Pippin listed in 1850 Census, age 25, with wife "Mary" age "34", both born in Tennessee. He lived next door to his father Henry.
1860 Census. District 10, Jackson Co TN. Still next door to Henry
Andy enlisted in Co. B, 28th TN Volunteer Infantry at Murfreesboro TN Dec 23 1862 [Stated 1862 in his pension application but was actually 1861 based on other events.] and served as a private. His Regt was merged with the 84th TN on Mar 8 1863 and designated as the 28th Consolidated; he was in Company K. His commanding officers were his 1st Cousin Capt. Alfred C. Pippin and Col. P. D. Cunningham. [Cunningham was killed 2 Jan 1862 at the Battle of Murfreesboro and Alfred Pippin died in a skirmish 13 Jan 1864.] Andrew stated he was in the Battle at Murfreesboro, Missionary Ridge [This may be an error as the Missionary Ridge battle occured a couple of days following Chickamauga; however his unit was there at the Ridge] and Chickamauga where he received a gunshot wound in the upper right arm. He was released as "unable for military service" but was captured by the Yankees on the way home and imprisoned at Nashville. He received no medical aid and was advised he would die if he remained in prison and was offered transportation home on on Jan 3 1864, provided he signed the oath of allegiance to the United States. He was denied his Confederate pension for signing the oath --- 7 Aug 1908 "War Records Report: Took the oath at Nashville, Jan 4 '64. The board hold a soldier had no right to take the oath, but must go to prison. Independent of this, he was on his way home when captured." The Pippin book states that he was eventually accepted but he died before the approval was finalized. Examination of the file sent to me from the National Archives included a letter from Mr. T. C. Fuqua, dated 17 Dec 191?, stating that Mr. Pippin is dead [the cemetery record states that Andrew died 17 Dec 1913] and his widdow is "just to mercies of charity" He states further that Pippin was evidently entitled to a pension but lacked some in proving his claim and all correspondence has been lost; please send proper papers for re-application & instructions for doing so. Application was first made 1 Jul 1908 and the letter from Mr. Fuqua about his death is the last date found in the file. Strangely the outside of the pension jacket is stamped "Accepted".
Regimental history reveals that at Chickamauga, Pippin's unit sustained 34% casualties. Very few men remained to surrender by 1865.

[1850 Census gives her age as 34 - likely 24 instead as Andrew is 25. In 1860 she is 36, one year older than Andrew. In 1870 Andrew is 44; Mary has "4". Seems reasonable they'd be about the same age.] I had information her father was James Goolsby, but this is not the Mary, daughter of James Goolsby/Elizabeth Pippin - she was much younger. It is probable she was an older Mary, daughter of this James Goolsby and his second wife. Neither of James Goolsby first two wives has ever been named. She died about 1870 at the age of 44 in Jackson County, Tennessee.
Some of the old records list Mary as Mary "Halfacre". No proof of this. She was probably the daughter of James Goolsby and his second wife, name unknown. In view of the fact Indian blood was often kept secret, I am curious as to why James Goolsby's first wife is unknown and why Mary's last name was ever given as Halfacre as found in some earlier writings about this family. Is this the Indian connection that cannot be proved?
ANDREW PIPPIN and MARY "MOLLIE" GOOLSBY had the following children:
ANDREW PIPPIN and Lucinda V. Hutcheson were married in February 1871 in Putnam County, Tennessee.15 Lucinda V.

Lucinda applied for Widow's Pension on 8 Sep 1926. She was living with her son-in-law S. R. Jackson and no property of any kind; she was totally blind. She named all the children and gave their ages. She did not remember the company & regiment he served in. John Tucker was named as a friend who would be willing to furnish more information.
