6 Charles Lips of Goliad, Texas among others is identified as "Kuklux." "The men involved were charged with the murder of Abram Bryant on August 18, 1874. The murder motivated B.J. Pridgen to bring charges of KuKlux Klanism against them for the murder of his former slave. This legal move finally was quashed and it was all for nought."
Charles appears in the census records of 1860 and 1870, first as a 7 year-old and then as a 17 year-old, suggesting that he was born in 1853. The next documentation is in the 1909 obituary of W.E. Lipps, which states that Charlie Lipps died in Eagle Pass. The Lipps descendants remember hearing of "Uncle Charlie," who, acoriding to stories handed down through the years, killed a man. The details vary. According to one niece, Charlie and his brother Fred owned a saloon in Texas. Another man, who owned a less successful saloon, came in arguing and pulled a gun on Fred. Charlie shot him and both brothers spent a few years in the penitentiary. After his release, his sweethearat jilted him and he was never heard from again.
Another version of the legend is that charlie and his brother John lived around the Mexican border. John gave his pistol to Charlie who shot a man with it, possibly after an argument over some cattle. After they got out of prison, the dead man's brother shot and killed Charlie. Still another remembers that it was "Uncle John" who killed a man.

10 "AryAnna married John W. Crawford on February 28, 1889, in Gonzales. He had evidently been married previously also, for two of his sons lived with the couple at the time of the census of 1900. They were Charles F., born in February of 1881, and John A. born in March of 1884. This somewhat confusing, since they have the same first names as AryAnna's and Martin Broers' sons. Their middle names and dates of birth, however, clearly identify them as John's children by a previous marriage. Crawford's occupation at the time is not legible on the microfilm, but AryAnna's is listed as "Bees and honey." They had a boarder by the name of JCC Abraham, a "day laborer." On April 2, 1924, Lot 3 Bk 10 Badger Addition was sold by AryAnna Crawford to Mamie B. Rose.
John Crawford died in 1932. An obituary in the January 3, 1933, issue of The Gonzales Inquirer states that he was a former city alderman and was buried in the I.O.O.F. cemetery on New Year's Day 1933. The funeral was conducted by "his pastor of First Presbyterian Church."
J.W. Crawford Passes Away, Funeral Sun.
"Gonzales lost one of her veneralbe and warmly esteemed citizens this morning in the passing of J.W. Crawford, who died at the family residence on North Hamilton Street at 7:45.
The end came following a short illness of flu-pneumonia. Mr Crawford had been very feeble for some time and suffered an illness about a month ago and when it was realized he had developed pneumonia little hope was held out for his recovery.
Surviving him are his wife, stepson, C.F. Broer of Harlingen, and a steop daughter, Mrs. W.H. Rose of Yoakum. The latter was at his bedside when the end came, coming up to care for him and Mrs. Crawford when they were taken ill.
Mr. Crawford was a native of Georgia and was born March 12, 1851, reaching the age of 81 years, 9 months and 19 days.
he came to Gonzales many years ago when a comparatively young man and here he passed the greater part of his life.
For a number of terms Mr. Crawford was a member of the city council serving his ward as alderman and the city with the utmost faithfulness and efficiency.
He was probably the oldest member of the local I.O.O.F. Lodge and was a faithful attendant upon its meeting until physically unable to get out.
Uniting with the First Mewthodist church years ago, Mr. lCrawford was one of its most devoted and faithful members, a regular attendant at the Sunday services and a member of the Men's Bible Class as well, never missing a service or class session unless prevented by illness. For some time he had been unalbe to longer attend on account of the increasing infirmities of advanced age.
In her loss the devoted wife and the step children will have the sincere sympathy of a host of friends.
The funeral has been set for Sunday afteroon at 2:30 o'clock with the servies to be donducted at the family residence by his pastor, Rev. J.T. King.
His remains will be laid to rest with the burial ceremonies of the I.O.O.F. order, the local lodge conducting them.
The funerla is under the direction Kleine Brothers Funeral Home."

Burial was at I.O.O.F. Cemetry in Gonzales, Gonzales, Texas.

12 "Elizabeth Doretta, known as "Libbie", was born in 1858 in Texas. She married Brower Broers (the other brother of Martin Broers who was married to AryAnna) on April 21, 1878, in DeWitt county. Her father, W.E. Lips witnessed the event. Brower was born April 24, 1848 in Hanover, Prussia, and immigrated to America in 1849 at the age of one year. At the time of the 1880 census, Brower and Libbie had a seven month old daughter, Ladora. They lived with Brower's mother, Deepke Broers, and his older brother, Peter (October 19, 1845 to March 6, 1901) Brother Brower and Peter were farmers.
In 1900 Libbie and Brower had five children: "Dora, born in September 1879; Owen, born August 1881; Laura, born December 1884; Martin, born April 1888; and John born April 1890. Brower was listed in this record as a "tank builder." Dora, aged 20 at the time was a music teacher.

33 An interview with James Oscar Hall: "My father's name was Edgar James hall. The Hall name is an adopted name. His real father was John Hawkins from London, england. John Hawkins came to the United States to a World's Fair. It has geen said it was a World's Fair in chicago, Illinois. I don't know the date but he was a representative of the country of England as an artist. He was also known to be a portrait artist and made cartoons. He also was a concert violinist. we have a sketch book of his that shows he went to the Plymouth School of "Art in Plymouth, England around 1879. This book is in the possessiion of Vicki Holmes. It was during this time that he met my grandmother and they got married. After they were married my grandfather sent for his mother in London and had her come to the United States and live with them. My grandfather only lived a few years of their marriage. My fahter barely remembered his father. John Hawkins died of a tumor of the brain. After his death my grandmother remarried a man by the name of James Truett hall whom I as named after. I don't know when the adoption took place but my father was older in his early teens. It was said to be for business reason."
"John hawkins had a brother who emigrated to Australia about the same time John Hawkins came to the United States. He started out as a sheep herder who, as the years went by became one of the biggest sheep owners in the land of Australia. He died in Australia but I don't know when. He was suppose to have left all of his holdings to my grandmother, Lilly May and my father, Edgar James but the government had a hard time find them. When they finally found my grandmother, the state limitations had gone by or something to that effect. The state took over his property so they lost out on that.



Several more years go by and John is born in January 30,1861. John is only 2 months old in the 1861 census. They are living at 63 Tavistock Street in Stoke Dameral.

John attends the Plymouth School of Art in 1879. The school has existed in Plymouth since 1851 or earlier. Many of the records were lost in the fires that damaged the city during the blitzes of the Second World War. John exhibited his artwork at the Royal Academy of Exhibitors in London. He had two paintings exhibited there. One painting on display was "Portrait of a Lady." The Royal Academy has exhibitions twice a year when "artists" of varying degrees of ability exhibit their work for sale. 1879 predates the issue of the first illustrated catalogues by ten years. Beyond this the Academy has no additional information about John Hawkins. He was living at 5, Walpole Street, Chelsea.In 1881 John is back home and is the only child at home. There is no mention of occupation for James or John. They are living at 50 Clowance St.

John decides to come to the United States. The story passed down in the family is that John came to the United States to represent England in the Worlds Fair but no proof of this has been found. He appears in St Louis, Missouri before April 1, 1881 living at 1825 Olive. The City Directory lists his occupation as artist boards. In 1882 John is living at the same address and his occupation is engraver. In 1883 his occupation is listed as artist boards.

In 1884 John sends for his parents in England to join him in St. Louis. James is now 69 and Jane is 63. James and Jane live at 2025 Obear Ave while John is living on south side of Breman Ave near the river. (This is probably the same address as his parents.) In 1885 John is listed as an artist living at 4331 N 20t Ave. His mother is living with him and in the directory she is listed as widow of James. James and his mother continue to live together during 1886 and 1887 at the same residence. John has been working in litho and as a draughtsman. In 1888 they moved to 4329 N 20th residence and John is listed as an artist. John and his mother move to 2000 John Ave.

John has met Lillie M. Coghill who has been living at 2005 Obear Ave. This is not far from the location John's parents lived when they first came to St. Louis. John and Lillie are married 12 February 1889 by R. M. Higgins, Pastor of Hyde Park Congregational Church. Lillie is 20 years old and her father, James C. Coghill's, signature is on her marriage application. Her mother has passed away before this. John is 28 years old and living at 2000 John Ave.. Later in the year, on 6 Nov 1889 a son, Edgar James Hawkins, is born. Later in 1889 they move to 2007 Obear Ave, which is close to Lillie’s parents home of 2005 Obear Ave. John’s occupation, is traveler. In the year 2000, the 2000 John Ave residence was found to be torn down but the 2025 Obear location still exists where John and his parents lived.
In 1890 John is listed in the city directory as an artist. In 1891 John and his family including his mother move to 4131 N Grand but in 1892 they move to 3205A Harper. John dies in August and is buried 7 August 1892 in the Coghill family plot at Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis.

37 Biography: Letter from Nettie Crundwell, 8 July 1970 from Burbank, California:
"My mother never knew where Mary Catherine Kringle was born or who her parents were. Mother understood that she was Pennsylvania Dutch, which are German. She was left an orphan when a little girl and lived with an older sister in Louisiana until she was 15 years old at which time she met and married ernest Lipps. Their first child was born in a town which is no longer on the map and I have forgotten the name of it. The other ten children were all born in Dewitt County, Texas."
Notes from Marva Huges--"She died after an illness that some of the descendents describe as "creeping paralysis," which caused her to be bedridden. It was described by others as "...a stroke that paralyzed her throat so she couldn't swallow." A record of her death and/or burial has not yet been found, although it was surely between 1880 and 1900. Bess Taylor, youngest daughter of Otis Lips, remembers her father taking her as a child "...to the cemetery where his mother was buried." It was near Cuero and the river, but the cemetery was grown up in weeds even then, and they were not able to find the grave. From her description, I believe it to be the
cemetery in what was the town of Clinton."
A letter from Katie W. Ward, daughter of Nannie Lipps and Willima Johnston says her grandmother died when she was a baby. She heard that her grandmother was a sweet person, quite and very reserved. She died young.
