I will always be grateful to my parents, Tommy and Beulah Nipper, and to my great-grandmother, Bessie (Tucker) McKeehan, who shared so many stories and memories and helped as much as possible with the family tree. Also, I appreciate the stories and help from Aunt Harriet (McKeehan) Wyatt, my grandmother Susie (McKeehan) Nipper Blakemore, Aunt Lula (McKeehan) Fairbanks, and Aunt Pearl (McKeehan) Clayton, all now deceased. Some of their memories and stories will be recorded and preserved on this website. Many thanks to Cousin Charles Ward, Cousin Maudie (Stanton) Vaughn (deceased), and to Reba (Bayless) Boyer (deceased) for a great deal of help with this line!

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