  • Notes 
    • Biography: Letter from Nettie Crundwell, 8 July 1970 from Burbank, California:
      "My mother never knew where Mary Catherine Kringle was born or who her parents were. Mother understood that she was Pennsylvania Dutch, which are German. She was left an orphan when a little girl and lived with an older sister in Louisiana until she was 15 years old at which time she met and married ernest Lipps. Their first child was born in a town which is no longer on the map and I have forgotten the name of it. The other ten children were all born in Dewitt County, Texas."
      Notes from Marva Huges--"She died after an illness that some of the descendents describe as "creeping paralysis," which caused her to be bedridden. It was described by others as "...a stroke that paralyzed her throat so she couldn't swallow." A record of her death and/or burial has not yet been found, although it was surely between 1880 and 1900. Bess Taylor, youngest daughter of Otis Lips, remembers her father taking her as a child "...to the cemetery where his mother was buried." It was near Cuero and the river, but the cemetery was grown up in weeds even then, and they were not able to find the grave. From her description, I believe it to be the
      cemetery in what was the town of Clinton."
      A letter from Katie W. Ward, daughter of Nannie Lipps and Willima Johnston says her grandmother died when she was a baby. She heard that her grandmother was a sweet person, quite and very reserved. She died young.


      Daily Inquirer Monday May 8, 1905: An Unique Volume Mrs. L.L. Ollre has a book compiled by her father - Mr. Jno. Ollre that has all the funeral notices ever published in the Inquirer from 1863-1894.

Mother was 59 or 60 years old. We have no record, or at least I don't. The old Bible well, I just don't know what ever went with it. Time rolls on, and we forget."
