  • Notes 
    • Received a letter from Aunt Nettie Patterson on Aug 23, 1956.
      Dear Janice, Your letter and papers came some time ago, and should have been answered. But I have not been well. I have arthritis in my hands, sometimes I can hardly hold my pen. I believe you are my great great niece, are you not. I am sending a list of the old Lipps family names. Sorry I don't have ages and dates of all. Wishing you good luck in what you have undertaken. I am 83 years old or will be 6th of Oct. I was glad to hear from you. Write me again sometime.
      Love and Best Wishes, Aunt Nettie Patterson.
      On anther paper she wrote the names of her siblings with the comments
      William Ernest Lipps died at the age of 85 in Gonzales, Texas was born in Germany and came to U.s. when 15 years old. Married to my mother, Mary Kringle in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. All of the children have passed away
      except myself and brother Otis.

      Received a letter from Aunt Nettie on Oct 1, 1958
      Dear Janice,
      Your sweet letter came over a year ago. I am ashamed that I have waited so long to anser, was glad to hear from you. I guess you are back in school or maybe married fore now. I don't believe you have told me your age. I would guess tho about 16 or 17 guessing from the looks of your picture. How are all my kin out that way. Did you visit your grandmother Lipps this summer. I haven't heard from her in months, I hope she is feeling better and her eye site has returned. Its bad enough to be old and to be blind with it is awful. My eyes are bad to, and my hearing also, my voice is about gone. I have always loved to sing but can't anymore.
      Well we are having another wet winter. Its been raining for the past 3 weeks and its turned real cool. I have had a fire all day. But its time for winter. You know in your letter you ask the names of my grandparents, well on my mother's side her name was Kringle. and my father's mother before she married Lipps was Nemire, I don't know her given name. She I guess would be my gret grandmother, on my fathers side, no, I am wrong, she would be my grandmother. My mother has been dead 67 years. and father about 50 years, he was 85 and mother was 59 or 60 years old. We have no record, or at least I don't. Sorry I don't. The old Bible well I just don't know what ever went with it. Time rolls on and we forget. I think tho, Katie Ward has it. She is a niece of your grandpa Lipps, John Lipps. She is a daughter of your Aunt Nannie Lipps Johnston. She has been dead 4 years. You might wirte Katie and she may be able to tell you more. Her address is Mrs. Arthur Ward 842 Steves "Ave, San Antonio 20 Texas. If and when I see her I'll tell her all about what you are trying to do, now please excuse my long delay in answering your letter, write me again some time and tell me all about yourself and family. Honey, the 6th of this month Oct, I'll be 85 years old, isn't that awful. I am a little older than your granmother Lipps, her birthday is in Jan, I think. Love to you Aunt Nettie Patterson.
      P.S. I have a married daughter living in Yuma Arizona. Name and address is Opal Reid or Mrs. A.J. Reid. 1334 9th Ave, yuma, Az. I don't know how far that is from Lowell, Ariz. If you ever go down that way drop in and see her. She is my youngest daughter of six dhildren. Aunt Nettie
