Additional Information

Philip PIPKIN:

Revolutionary War Patriot, signed "Oath of Allegiance" Pitt Co. North Carolina, 23 Aug 1775
Philip's WILL has never been located. [Clint Pipkin]
Dear Clint Pipkin, I had contacted you previously for help from my friend (in her 80s) Florence Yates Cramer, descendant ofNancy Artissima Harrell, d/o Lou Ann Pipkin. I had asked for your help with a few documents to help Florence became a member of the DAR. Florence is a dear, sweet lady who would love to prove a Revolutionary War Veteran. I really would like to help her.
I know how difficult it is to go go through one's documents as I just did this for a lady in KY whom I do not know. It took me all evening to go through my notebook and pick out what she and her sister will need to become DAR members. Then I had to go to another town to copy all the documents. However, many, many people have helped me in the past. She wanted to pay me. I said only for the cost of printing and mailing. Too many havehelped me in the past for me to take money. My reward is for this lady to help someone else in the same way.
Anyway, I have not heard from you as to whether you will help Florence, so I assume you are unable to do so. However, I received some information today, so I want to share that with you.
Today I received a record copy of a DAR application for Philip Pipkin who is the patriot. Philip's service was that he signed Oath of Allegiance, Pitt County, NC.
Wilma Pipkin Smallin, the applicant, goes on to say, "He was one of the signers of the "Proceedings of the Safety Committee" at Martinborough in Pitt County, NC, Aug 23, 1775. Vol 10, p 222 NC State Records.For Enos Pipkin, she goeson to reference "Century Review, Davidson Co., Tenn Marriage Records, 1850 Census, served on first jury, March 1808 term, Maury Co., TN."
No other references were given. However, the genealogist wrote "County History" on Enos Pipkin (husband of Margeret Elizabeth Dill). One his son John Patten Pipkin was written Fam. Rec., Will.
This application was filed back in1977. The DAR was not as careful back then as they are now. However, the application did indicate that something was attche (not included with what they sent me.)
Other than what you put on the website, the census was the only references you gave. Do you have any other references that I might pursue? I know that Florence hasthe death certificate of Nancy Artissema Harrell. I think I found the marriage record somewhere of Lou Ann and her husband.
With the complete b., d. & m. dates for Lou Ann and Thomas Harrell, there must be some records somewhere. Can you please clue me in about where to look. I can get the census records atour library, but not the B, D, & M. for Lou Ann's parents (Philip and Mary Ann White Pipkin), grandparents, (Enos and Margaret Elizabeth Dill Pipkin) andanything additional about Philip and Martha Paris Pipkin.
I saw the picture of your handsome Marine son on your website. What a wonderful tribute to him! I know you were proud of him and your loss was deep. My husband enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1948, then went to flight training, became a Naval Aviator. He retired in 1979 from the Navy.
I hope the above information is helpful to someone. I also hope you will at least discuss the references with me. Marlene Wilkinson
