ISAIAH T. LIPPITT.
The success which has come to the subject of this sketch is a legitimate reward of well directed effort, for I.
T. Lippitt has made his way in the world along those lines which mark him as a self made man. A son of Joseph W.
and Mary (Tremmer) Lippitt, he was born in Noble county, Ohio, September 7, 1859. His father, also a native of
Noble county, Ohio, went to Jasper county, Missouri, in 1882, and located on the farm on which his son now lives.
He died at Leon, Kansas, at the age of fifty seven years. His wife, Mary Tremmer, was born in Pennsylvania and
reared in Ohio. She died in Missouri at the age of fifty four years.
Joseph W. and Mary (Tremmer) Lippitt had six children, five of whom are living. Isaiah T. Lippitt, their third
child in order of birth, was reared in Noble county, Ohio, and went to Missouri with his parents, at the age of
twenty three years. Industry and perseverance are perhaps the most prominent traits of his character. He is now
the owner of the old homestead, which he has developed into a highly productive farm and equipped with first class
buildings and appointments. It now consists of three hundred and thirty acres, and he devotes it largely to general
farming and stock raising, making a specialty of hay, of which he bales considerable quantities.
Politically he is a Republican and he is not without influence in the councils of his party. He has filled the
office of school director with ability and discretion. He is a member of the order of Modern Woodmen; and, well
known and popular in all the relations of life, he is active and influential.
In 1889 Mr. Lippitt married Miss Mary Davis, of Jasper county, a native of England, who came to America at the
age of fifteen years, and they have two sons, named Lestie W. and Carl D. Lippitt.
