Email request on My Heritage re Mary L Kip

I received an email request on My Heritage for a Kip member:

My name is Lauren and I have been researching my family tree and I noticed you have a Kip family tree. I wondering if you knew anything about Mary L Kip ( I believe her full name was Mary Louise Kip) who I believe was born somewhere between 1855 and 1859. She is my great great grandmother. I noticed you have a Mary L Kip on your tree and I am wondering if they are one in the same,
I’m curious to see if you know anything about her as to if my story matched what you may know about her, and I can certainly fill in the info that I know about her once she got married.

Thank you so much and I hope to hear from you.
Have a nice night


My reply:

 My husband's family is Kipp. Mary Louise Kipp, daughter of Reuben Kipp and Eliza Jane Nelmes was born 3 Oct 1864 in East Oxford Twp, Oxford County, Ontario, Canada. She married John Thomas Wilkinson 9 Jul 1890 at New Westminster, BC, Canada.

 Hi! Thank you for getting back to me. I was thinking she could be the Mary L Kip you have on your tree that was the daughter of John A Kip. and Emma Kip (it popped up when I was researching) I would think they would have lived in either NY or NJ
The Mary L Kip in my family married Chas. Haarstick and they had one child my dads grandmother Sarah haarstick. She died during childbirth when my great grandmother was very young.
 It’s so hard to find anything when I don’t know her parents names.

Thanks again for getting back to me.
Do you know anything about the John and Emma Kips daughter named Mary L?

 I meant John and Ann kipp, sorry. Emma was one of their daughters. 

My reply:

John A Kipp born 9 Feb 1811 at Hackensack  married Ann E Gaskine 4 Mar 1850 in New York. They had two daughters (Emma 1855) and Mary L (1859). This was a second marriage for John A Kipp. There is no information for Mary L Kip beyond  her birth date of 7 Oct 1859.

I do not do any Kip research and my husband is deceased. Good luck with your research.

I could have added: It is possible that the one reference to Richard Mclean Anderson might lead to more information on your line.
