I am looking for information on my family from PA. i currently live in CT, my father joined the navy and moved to CT where he met and married my mother. Every generation of his family was from PA back to a Robert Lipsey. We know spell our name Lipsie. Robert Lipsey was born (this is where i have questions) either abt 1848 or abt 1853. There is a wide range there which concerns me. I have a 1880 census report dating his birth at 1853. Married to a Agnes, children included William, George, Robert, Minnie, James, Thomas and one ore two more i cant recall at the moment. Now this is where i get confused all the dates for the children and the wife match the two records just not his dates. I do know he was born in Ireland, was a coal miner and died 1900 or before. The 1900 census marks Agnes as a widow. any help would be great! if you have any questions for me fire away. i hope to hear from someone, anyone! soon.
