That is the only information with the surname Lipsey in the book. Here is an obituary that I just found although it sounds like you may already have it...

Indiana Evening Gazette
11 Nov 1936

Mrs. Agnes (Jarvie) Lipsie died at her home, 136 Morewood avenue, Blairsville of complications, at 6:00 am today. She was born February 26 (or 28 - not completely legible) 1858 at Dumbartonshire, Scotland. She was the daughter of James Jarvie and Miron Montgomery Jarvie. She came to the United States at the age of five years and located in Desire, Jefferson County, where she lived for 35 years. She moved to Blairsville several years ago where she had since made her home.

She leaves six sons, James, Plumville; Robert, Vandergrift; George, Commodore; Alex, at home, William and John of Blairsville, and a daughter Mrs. W.W. Hetrick of Emporium. Her husband, Robert Lipsie, preceded her in death May 25, 1900. Two daughters and two sons also are deceased. Surviving also are 21 grandchildren, three great-grand children, and two sisters, Mrs. Jean Blythe and Mrs. Mern Shaw, both of Clearfield.
