I recently obtained a copy of a book which mentions James Kipp fur trader among the Mandans.
"Across the Wide Missouri by Bernard DeVoto. Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, Mass. The Riverside Press, Cambridge, Mass. 1947."
Pages 70, 134, 136, 146, 282. Not much is said about him but his name is mentioned at least once on each of these pages.
This book also contains 32 pages of reproductions of contemporary watercolor paintings by artist Alfred Jacob Miller and others.
James Kipp (1788-1880) - Capt Samuel Kipp (1753-1803) - Benjamin Kip (1714-1782) - Jesse Kipp (1660-1722) - Jacob Hendricksen Kip (1631-1690) - Hendrick Hendricksen Kip (1600-1685)
