The Cass County Historical Society sends quarterly letters to its membership, quite a few of whom live at By WILL BALL They are only newsletters, intended solely to let the membership know that the Society still has some life left.

In.spite of his extensive real estate holdings, he was heavily in deb't. He was "land poor." His administrator's,' happened to be attached to the farm 1 , east of Logansport. Neenah Simpson, granddaughter of General Johr.' Tipton, "heired" it in the settlement of the Tipton estate. A tract of equal size, immediately east, was inherited by her aunt, Harriet Tipton Dunn. We wonder how the name Neenah happened to be given to young John Tipton's wife. It is the name of a town in Wisconsin, which ap-i •parently took it from an Indian word meaning "running water," or "rapids." MRS.

Born near Kewanna Jan. 30, 1873, he was the son of Abel and Eliza Jane Liton Graham. He moved to Fulton six years ago after spending most of his life as a farmer in northern Cass county. He was a member of the Methodist church and the Fulton lodge, F. & A.M. 5G5. 'The Dalton Girls." Incidentally, it took the Tipton i administrators several years to im- railroad siding. There is no rail- roal near the county farm. HOWEVER, WE DIDN'T think too much of that deficiency, for the State could trade the Clay township tract for one more desirable.
