  1. I am trying to find out any information on my dad’s grandfathers father – Benjamin L Tripp’s parents and grandparents. Benjamin L was from Oneida County, NY. He was born around 1816 and died September 1849 at age 32 (supposedly killed in an accident). He is buried in the Link Road Cemetery (Oneida County) along with his inlaws Leland and Eva Agan. Benjamin married
    Betsey Agan (Sarah Elizabeth) (1822-1899). Supposedly Benjamin had worked in the salt blocks of Syracuse, NY.
    I am trying to find a connection between Benjamin and William Tripp (Revolutionary War soldier). My mother in doing geneology (before she passed away) felt that it was believed that William was the grandfather of Benjamin.

    Any information on this would be extremely helpful.

    Thank you.

  2. I am a descendent of Sylvanus Tripp from Kittery, ME.

    I’m actually looking for information on Mary Polly Noble, the first wife of the Rev Jedediah Tripp. Jedediah is the great grandson of Sylvanus. He was born in Lyman, ME and died in Alfred, ME.

    I understand that Sylvanus is not a descendent of “The Founder.” But I am wondering if anyone has any information on his line…and ultimately on Jedediah’s first wife.

    Thanks!

  3. I have 5 beautiful oil paintings by an artist Norris C. Tripp. Is he an ancestor of yours. I would gladly share photos of them. My parents left me these paintings and I have tried to research the artist. Please get back to me with any questions or comments. I am from southeastern Massachusetts.
