"Colonel John Tipton was married 1750-1 to Mary Butler, daughter of Thomas Bulter, who was killed by the Indians on his farm on Cedar Creek, Shenandoah county, Va., at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. She bore him nine sons, to-wit; Samuel, Benjamin, Abraham, William, Isaac, Jacob, John, Thomas, Jonathan. Mary (Butler) Tipton died in Shenandoah coutny, June 8, 1776. July 22, 1777, Colonel Tipton was married to Marth (Denton) Moore, widow of Dr. James Moore, Shenandoah county. By her he had one son, who was killed in Clark's Expediton against the Indians 1782. Colonel Tipton is said to have had several daughters; whether by the first or second marriage is unknown, as are their names also. Col. John Tipton died, it is said, August, 1813, and, with his wife Martha, is buried on his farm on Sinking Creek, on the hill above the historic old house that still stands pratically unchanged since its erection before 1800. Here after the death of old Col. John Tipton, his son John Tipton of Sullivan county, lived until his death in 1831, after which the home was sold to David Haynes and became the home of Tennessee's silver-tongued orator, Landon C. Haynes.".....

ABRAHAM TIPTON, son of Colonel John Tipton, by his second wife, Martha (Denton) Moore Tipton, was named for his half-brother, Capt. Abraham Tipton, who was killed 1782. Abraham Tipton, the younger, died about the age of thirty.
