James Kipp is the son of Capt Samuel Kipp and Mary Knapp.

The title of the article is: 
James Kipp: Upper Missouri River Fur Trader and Missouri Farmer.
Published in North Dakota History, Journal of the Northern Plains, Vol. 77, Nos. 1 & 2. Pages 40.

There is one error in it:  Kipp could not have interacted with William Laidlaw on the Red River in 1808, for Laidlaw was only 8 years old at the time, having been born in 1800.
