Because of location of his grave and that of his family, I believe he was related to William Whippo 1833-1915. His monument states he was b. in Zellerfehl Germany. Also says "Gone But Not Forgotten". Cem. Card File sates cause of death, apoplexy. Found in Jo Daviess Co., IL Marriage Records Volume B: 1855-1865 07/26/1858 B/191
WIPPON, CHARLES GERHARD, SALOME (ALSO GEARHARD). At the base of Chares & Salome's monument are 5 other tombstones. The first says FATHER and the second, MOTHER. The are old. The third says FREDERICK WHIPPO 1873-1950; Fourth, LENA BUCHMANN 1865-1941. They are their children. The last tombstone is for JACOB BUCHMANN 1881-1964. I have not research Jacob, but assume he is Lena's son, Charles & Salome's grandson.
