He arrived in Fulton County, Ill. in 1831, and secured land in Section 16 of Lee Township. By this marriage John H.

Here he has been engaged in the general mercantile business since March 13, 1876. In July, 1876, he was appointed Postmaster at Swan Creek, a position he held for eight years, and to which he was reappointed by President McKinley in August, 1897, and is serving at the present time. For several years he has bought grain and stock in connection with his other trade at Swan Creek. He is a member of the local post of the Grand Army of the Republic. For his second wife Mr. Lippy espoused Mrs. Lucinda Mariah (Hendryx) Sanford, the widow of Sylvester Sanford, a veteran of the civil war who served in Company C, Seventeenth Illinois Volunteer Infantry completing a term of three years and three months. He was born in Lee Township, Fulton County, Ill., June 6, 1842, and died at Golden City, Mo., November 20, 1878.
