T. Pippin

Was born in Shelby, Chittenden County, Vt., in 1845. He is a son of Joseph and Matilda Pippin, both natives of Canada, and emigrated to Vermont about the year 1837 or 1838.

Here Mr. Pippin remained till his death, which occurred in 1879, in the month of September. His widow still resides in Chittenden County. At the age of seventeen, T. Pippin, the subject of this sketch, enlisted in Company D, Tenth Vermont Volunteers, July 23, 1862; served his county till July 4, 1865, when he as discharged. He was in thirteen general engagements, as follows: Locust Grove, Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Tolopatamy Creek, Cold Harbor and Petersburg, Va.; Monocacy, Md.; Opequon Creek, Fisher's Hill, Cedar Creek, capture of Petersburg, and Sailor's Creek, Va. His principal marches were: October 1863 when Lee drove the army from Culpepper, Va., to Washington; the march through the Wilderness, and the marches of Sheridan. The last march was to Appomattox, at the capture of General Lee.

Mr. Pippin was one of the profitable soldiers; he was always on duty with the exception of a week he was in a hospital with typhoid fever; was never taken prisoner nor wounded; was shot with a spent ball from a spherical case, but received no injury.

After his return from the army he went to California, remaining one summer, engaging in the dairy business. In the fall he went to Silver City, Nev. Here he remained three years and a half, working in the quartz mills. In April 1870, he returned to Shelby, Vt., where he remained only about four months, when he went to Columbia County, Wis., where he purchased ninety acres of land, and farmed about two years, when he sold his farm and returned to Silver City, Nev., and worked three years and a half in the quartz mills.

Then he went to Iowa in search of a home, and settled in Floyd County, purchasing ninety acres on section 7, Ulster Township; now owns 100 acres. This year he has in corn thirty acres; oats, eight acres. Has in a crop on an adjoining 160 acres belonging to Miss Mary Wright, oats, fifty; wheat, twelve, and corn, fifty acres.
