|Death: ||Jan. 28, 1863|
James Lippincott was born in Allen Co., Ohio in 1844.
From Judith M. Olsen's book, LIPPINCOTT The 6th Generation of the Descendants of Richard and Abigail Lippincott, 1999, we find that James L. S. Lippincott was the 8th of 11 children of Lemuel & Priscilla (Babcock) Lippincott. James' father was the son of Samuel & Amy (Maxson) Lippincott, and was born about 1810, perhaps in Harrison County, West Virginia. James' parents were married in Clark County, Ohio on March 5, 1828. The 11 children were Henry L.
Indiana & Malinda L. (twins)

The record shows 7 of the children lived to marriageable age, only William dying young. The above was referenced from the following: Clark Co. Ohio marriage records; T. C. Davis Manuscripts - pg. 102; and Susie Nicholson's notes.
James enlisted in the Federal Army at Camp Lima in Company "C" of the 99th Ohio Volunteer Infantry as a private for 3 years on August 6, 1862, with a bounty of $25. He indicated he was a farmer from Greentop, Ohio, that he was single, 18 years old and was 5'7". Pay records show he was present at the Sept/Oct and Nov/Dec musters but the Jan/Feb ‘63 muster is annotated he "died in Nashville, Tennessee of typhoid fever on Jan. 28, 1863." From government records is found "James L. S. Lippincott" on the military record. It was unclear and I didn't feel confident about the middle initial even from the Memorandum of Death. It could have been an L or an S or even something else!
Oddly enough this James Lippincott was possibly at the battle of Stones River (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) the same day James Foreman Lippincott of the 77th PA Vol Inf Regiment was captured by rebels on Dec 31,‘62. The 77th Pa was on the far Union right and the 99th Ohio was on the far left, attached to Price's Brigade under General Crittenden's Corps. The 99th Ohio Regiment was organized at Lima, on August 26, 1862, to serve 3 years. It consolidated with the 50t Regt, Ohio Infantry, on December 31, 1864.
