About Ennis Pippen

Ennis Pippen married two sisters - first Martha Newton in 1836, and when she died, her sister Hannah Carolyn Newton - our ancestor - in 1843. An interesting side note is that Ennis' father, Solomon Pippen III, married as his second wife Jane Newton, older sister to Ennis's two wives. Jane Newton had first married Archibald Rooks and was a widow when she married Solomon Pippen. The Newton family has some very interesting family history, which we will get to in time.

Ennis Pippen is buried in the Pippin Cemetery in Clarkesville, Florida. I personally visited this cemetery with my family on Thursday, December 18, 2008 and took photographs of his tombstone. I will upload this in the near future. His grave is in terrible shape and needs a new slab. A Confederate Marker has been placed above the slab and reads:

Ennis Pippen

Pvt Co I II Fla Inf

Confederate States Army

Apr 10 1810 Aug 10 1892

Buried to his immediate right is his wife, Hannah Carolyn Newton. Her slab is in terrible shape as well but someone has placed a small metal marker at the head of the slab.

Ennis was something of a real estate speculator when he was young and became releatively prosperous from it. Later, he farmed and owned both a lumber mill, and a flour mill - run for several years by our ancestor, John Butler. He also served as a Calhoun County Commissioner for a couple of terms.
