Lippincott Families around Rancocas, NJ

Lippincott Family. In 1983, our uncle Charles Lippincott (1901-1995) came for a visit. Boy, could he tell family stores! He and I came to an agreement: Uncle Charles would mail me (via US Postal Service) his hand-written stories and I would type them (on a blue IBM Selectric Typewriter). "We Lippincotts" remembers growing up near Rancocas and Moorestown, NJ.

Ella Hansell & Richard R. Lippincott. We inherited a cardboard box of family papers that contained photos of Ella Hansell and Richard Lippincott, taken just before Richard went off to the Civil War. Now I could put faces to Uncle Charles' stories. This narrative is also posted at Frank Marone's website Frank took it upon himself to erect a new headstone for Richard Lippincott in the Rancocas Friends Cemetery.

Outing Girls in Rancocas. Starting in 1888, Ella Hansell and her husband Richard R. Lippincott were Outing patrons for young women from the Carlisle Indian Industrial School: Adelia Lowe, Sallie Face, Ida Wasee, Nancy Tadgahsong, Jeannette Rice, and Christine Childs. The Lippincott's daughter Ella Lippincott Williams (above) carried on the tradition with Laura Nalyzayash. About 23 families in the village of Rancocas, Willingboro Township and the western part of Westampton Township joined the Outing program.

Ella's brothers Wilmot Hansell and Richard H. Hansell also participated in the Outing program: The Wilmot Hansell family hosted Dorothy Naiche, Jemima Wheelock, Lydia Clute, Margaret Yates, Marian King, Katie Metoxen, Rebecca Broncho, Mary Smith, Emma Quinn and Nancy Hasholy. Richard H. Hansell and his family hosted Eva Rogers, Maggie Johnniejohn, Gertrude Jackson, Bessie Nick, Martha Cornsilk, Emma Hill, Rachel Washington, Jennie Schanandore, Pheobe Doxtator, and Elsie Valley. Maybe one day I will explore the lives of these young women.
