That concludes the section of the book on the Peter Leipham family eighth line that took the name LIPAN.
My brother-in-law, who is approaching age 80, is related to the Leipham family through the fourth line, that of Sarah A. Leipham (b. 1833) -who married George W. ARNTS
(b. 1838 - died at the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg).
He is very articulate and knowledgeable on the entire Leipham / Lipan family. He may have additional information if there is a particular family group of the LIPAN line that you may be seeking. If so, let me know and I'll do my best to gather more information.
