My ancestor, James B. Tipton, moved to Westphalia, KS in 1865 and built a home there with his wife Ellen Hill. He was supposedly the first settler in Westphalia, according to my great-aunt. James and Ellen Tipton are both buried at Cherry Mound Cemetery. I'd like to get in touch with other Tipton and Hill researchers to share information.
