Alonzo J. Fipps.—Thirty-six years ago, Alonzo J. Fipps left his native State, and since that time Kansas has been his home, and he has never had cause to regret that move. He was born on a farm in Bartholomew county, Indiana, November 18, 1856. His parents were John H. and Martha A. (Rown) Fipps, both natives of Indiana. They had four children, Sarah, born in 1851, died in infancy; William, born in 1853, farmer, resides at Liberty, Ind. Alonzo J., the subject of this sketch, and John, born January 12, 1859, and died June 20, 1859. Alonzo J. Fipps received his early education in the public schools of Indiana and Ohio, and in 1878 came to Kansas, and remained one year in Wichita. He then went to Harper county, and preempted a claim in Pilot Knob township, five miles east and two miles south of Harper, where he has since lived and prospered, and now owns a home and other property in the town of Harper. He was married February 22, 1894, at Harper, to Miss Anchor, daughter of Joseph and Mary (Knotts) Montgomery. Mrs. Fipps is also a native of Indiana, born in Franklin county, and came to Kansas with her parents, both now deceased, in 1876. To Mr. and Mrs. Fipps have been born two children: Edna Arvilla, born in 1895, died in infancy, and John Everett, born July 7, 1896, a graduate of the Harper High School, class of 1914, and now resides at home. Mrs. Fipps is a member of the Christian Church, and is active in church work. Politically Mr. Fipps is a Democrat, and has served as trustees of Pilot Knob township several terms. His fraternal affiliations are with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
