I will always be grateful to my father, Tommy Nipper, and my great-grandmother, Bessie (Tucker) McKeehan, who shared so many stories and memories and helped all they could with the family tree. Also, I appreciate the stories and help from Aunt Harriet (McKeehan) Wyatt and Cousin Ada (Patterson) Watkins. Many thanks to Cousin Denise Keltch for help with gathering data on many lines!

This site is dedicated to the memory of my parents, Tommy and Beulah (Cline) Nipper.
