If you are the Philip Tripp who wrote to me today on FindAGrave and asked permission to use a photo, I have no means of replying to you since you've turned off comments on your FindAGrave profile, nor do not have your email listed.

If you are a different Philip Tripp, please disregard.

Thank you.

Yes, I am that Philip Tripp. Sorry about the communication block. Not intentional, I assure you.

I am descended from Gregory Belcher 1606-1674 on my father's mother's side. However, you are a YDNA match to my father, Craig Angel, the paternal side. Not sure if we are related on both sides.

There is a pretty interesting YDNA project in Family Tree (FCG22501) that connects the surname Tripp to our Engel (an early variation of our Angle/Angel name) based on the YDNA of a Roman era soldier 200-400AD found in an ancient cemetery in York, England.

This YDNA project recruited us based on a possible match. They suggested numerous DNA tests be done on his sample and I learned we are connected to individual 22 in Driffeld 6 in this dig. You may want to checkout the project.

Hi Philip,

Just was working on the post for Thomas Safford when I discovered you removed your self as the manager, I didn't think there was any intervention needed because I noticed you proposed for, or approved and merged others of this family as well without any problems, so hope it wasn't because of the G2G ? Anyway they now are merged and I added some additional info to the profile and will look for some real and more prove as well . :)

Thanks and greets from Holland , Bea

Hi Philip,

Thank you for merging Unknown-275593, Lawton-679, and Lawton-353.

When we merge duplicates, it is important to do it in the right order and to end up with the lowest profile number that has the correct LNAB. Please see Direction of a Merge and Merging Duplicates just below that.

Thank you,

I tried to obtain (download) Lawrence Buckley's book " Thomas Family Descended from Him, and of Some Allied Families", but google has the pdf version paywalled, but also contradicting themselves by stating it is "DRM free". I was initially re-directed from the website to google books.

Hi Phil! Yup, they're the same person, but I don't know which spelling the final profile should have (I have a Wynn in my tree, so I watch that surname, but these Wynn/es aren't in my line, so I don't know which is appropriate). Do you have research to support one or the other? Could you post your source to one of their profile pages or to mine? Thanks! (re: Wynn-725 and Wynne-811and Wynne-431)

I do have info on Milton Leroy Tripp. I will need to look up the particulars for you. Remind me if you haven't heard from me in a week. The thing that stands out most to me is that we have no information whatsoever on his Cherokee father and that John Casey raised him as a son. To me that sounds like the biological father either did not know he had a son by Mary Ann or he knew but stayed out of the picture purposefully. Or it may have been the issue of Native Americans having no rights & the father's life may have been in danger for various reasons. These are all just suppositions on my part. My father did not have the total picture of what happened. I do have ML's death certificate and possibly some other details about him. Like I said, don't hesitate to remind me.

Philip, Mary Ann Tripp Casey was my great-great grandmother but I have very little information on her. My grandmother Mary Ann Tripp Yow was named after her. My father told me that Mary Ann Tripp Yow (my grandmother) was born in Illinois near Murphysboro at a place called Owl's Hollow. I can find no info on that area, other than its approx location. My grandmother's family moved to the Altenburg MO area at some point. My grandmother moved to Cape Girardeau MO when she married my grandfather and stayed there for the rest of her short life. She buried 4 babies before having my father, Raymond W. Yow. She died at age 47. I wish I could help more.

I must admit that I don't know what the acronymn you sked about stands for. I'm wondering if it could have something to do with LDS data bases, but I just don't know. You might ask on the G2 feed. Good question!!!!
