Birth: Jul. 27, 1795
Death: Oct. 10, 1877

During the War of 1812, he served as a private in James Davidson's company of the Regular Mounted Volunteer Regiment in Kentucky. He volunteered for service in Garrard County, Kentucky. On May 1, 1813, he was stationed with the Western Army at Great Crossings, Scott County, Kentucky. He fought the British and Indians at Moravian Township on the River Thames in Upper Canada where the Indian Chief Tecumseh died. He left the army in October 1813 at Stanford in Lincoln County, Kentucky.

He married Sally "Sarah" W. Smith (born March 15, 1789 -died November 8, 1874) on October 4, 1814. They settled at Brookland, Sabine County, Texas before 1836. By 1850, they were living near the Bear Creek Post Office, where Lipscomb served as Postmaster in 1859. He wrote to Congressmen D.S. Kaufmann in 1851 about his war papers. The Norvells built the first mill or lower mill on Mill Creek. On May 21, 1877, he filed for a pension of $8.00 from his War of 1812 service. He and Sally were originally buried in the Old Norvell Cemetery about 3 miles northwest of Brookland, but later moved. Lipscomb is in the Jasper City Cemetery and Sarah in the Memorial Park Cemetery
