Paul, I have that Mary Jane Lipps Ratliff parents were Wm Daniel Lipps and Margaret 'Martha' Nave. I don't know where they are buried but have that Daniel's parents were from Wilkes County, NC and died in Carter County, TN. They were supposedly Jonathan Lipps, 10/24/1777 - Dec. 31, 1877. . . and Sarah Gullett, 1779-1842. I need to check Jonathan's death date of 1877 again, as it was given to me and I'm not sure if it is right. You may have this but thought I'd share in case you didn't. By the way, I do know that Nave is a Carter County, TN surname.
