Igness Kip was the son of Jacob R. Kip and Marytje Kip and was baptized as “Ygenas” April 20th, 1760. His name can be found spelled several different ways and may be short for Ignatius, as Smith’s History of Rhinebeck lists him as “Ignatious” but as his tombstone is engraved “Ingess”, we will use that spelling for this publication.
His grandfather was Roeliff Kip born 1697. He married Catherine Hermance and they had children Jacob 1793 and Hendricus 1794. He died on his birthday, April 12th, 1795 at age 35. At the start of the Revolution he was 15 and when it was over, he was only 21. It was not unusual to survive the battle but have your life shortened by the experience.
An Igenas Kip that was a Lieutenant in the 14th Reg’t of Albany County Militia [NYRC+S V1. p. 125] was from Scaticoke and lived 1736–1788.
