Shady Point News
LeFlore County, Oklahoma
May 3, 1946 

...This community was saddened last Saturday morning to learn that at 9 o'clock the previous night Charles LIPPY passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. L. BRADDY, at Panama. 

Mr. Lippy, who has been in ill health for some time, was only seriously for a few days preceeding his death. 

He was one of the pioneers of this part of the country, a man well liked by all who knew him. He and his wife, who preceeded him in death by several years, were residents of Shady Point for many years, having practically reared and educated their family here, but for the past two or three years he has made his home with Mrs. Braddy at Panama. 

Funeral services were held at the Baptist church here at 2 o'clock Sunday, Rev. Caves, Baptist pastor at Panama, delivering the sermon and the Miller funeral home of Poteau in charge at graveside. 

A large concourse of relatives and friends attended the services. 
The sympathies of many friends, both at Shady Point and Panama were extended the family. 

Among those from out of town attending were his granddaughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Brkhalter [Burkhalter] of Tuscaloosa, Ala; Mrs. B[u]rkhalter, the former Doris Braddy, who is a member of the school faculty at Tuscaloosa; Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Holland of Arkoma, their daughter, Mrs. Gertrude Strange of Fort Smith, John Roberson of Kansas City, Mo., R.C. Parish, Noel, Mo., and Georgia Davis, Muskogee, all relatives and Mr. and Mrs. Hosea Parris of Poteau. Mr. and Mrs. O. E. Long of Panama, Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Austin of Bokoshe, old friends and acquaintances also were noted in the crowd.

Anderson (MO) News Review
January 1916 

LeFlore County resident 

LIPPY, Jane 

Mrs. Jane Lippy died at her home in Anderson Friday, Jan. 20, 1916. She with her daughter moved to Anderson from Oklahoma about a month ago. She had been in poor health and the family moved here in hopes that a change might improve her condition. 
She leaves a husband, two sons, and two daughters to mourn. The funeral was conducted by Rev. Dixon at the home Friday at 2:30 p.m. and the body was laid to rest in the Anderson cemetery.


We desire to express our sincere thanks to the people of Anderson who so kindly assisted us in our sad bereavement.

Note from submitter: Eliza Jane was the wife of Charles LIPPY; they married in 1886 in Shady Point, Oklahoma. Their daughter Florence was born in 1887, and she continued to live in LeFlore Co. until her divorce from Lucius BRADDY at the age of 50. 

Eliza's first three children predated this marriage: Lillie Roberson (Parish), 1880; Lee E. Roberson, 1885; John H. Roberson, 1887; all were born in the Indian Territory, around Howe. Eliza Jane actually was visiting her daughter in Missouri at the time of her death. 

Lillie and Rice had moved there about 10 years earlier. The "Robinson" names in the published "card of thanks" are in error.
