I will always be grateful to my father, Tommy Nipper, and my great-grandmother, Bessie (Tucker) McKeehan, who shared so many stories and memories and helped all they could with the family tree. Also, I appreciate the stories and help from Aunt Harriet (McKeehan) Wyatt, Cousin Floyd Hughes, and Cousin Jim McDonald (all deceased). Many of their memories and stories will be recorded and preserved on this website.
