Fred Lips


Fred Lips was born 15 Jan 1866 in Cuero, DeWitt, Texas.1 He was the fourth son and seventh child of William Ernest Lipps and Mary Harriet Cringle.2

In 1880 Fred is 14 years old and the oldest child at home. He is living with his parents and siblings – Nannie, Mollie, Nettie and Otis. He has an older sister, Sallie Abbie, and her husband Urial Owen, a dentist, living with the family.3

Fred must have been living with his brother, John Oscar, in El Paso, Texas prior to 1900 since he is found living with John and his wife, Tidy, in El Paso on the 1900 Texas census.4 It was here that Fred married Juda Malone Buchan.5 One daughter, Maude A, was born in El Paso, 31 Oct 1895.6

Juda or Julia, as she was known, had previously been married to George Wesley Buchan.78 She had three children with him, George Wesley Buchan born 10 July 1881 in De Leon, Comanche, Texas.9 A second child, Clint Buchan was born 1885 in De Leon,Texas,11 and died in 1900.12 Her third child, Eugenie Sidney Buchan (Jennie) was born 31 December 1887 in De Leon, Commanche, Texas.13

In 1900, Fred and Julia are found in Benson, Cochise County, Arizona.14Living with them are Jennie and Maude. Clint probably died in 1899 since he is not mentioned in the 1900 census. Fred is a gun smith. What had brought them to Arizona from Texas is unknown. Perhaps it was the mining industry and the El Paso and Southern Arizona Railroad which transported copper and silver from the neighboring mining communities to a refinery in El Paso, Texas.15 He did have a cousin, Charles H. Neimeyer, living in Florence, Arizona.16

Sometime before 1910, Fred and Julia had moved to Naco, Cochise, Arizona.17 Fred is a barber working in a barber shop. He and Julia have been married 17 years. Maude A. is 13 years old. Living next to them on C Street is Jeannie who had married 22 Oct 1905 in Naco, Cochise, Arizona to Daniel L. Culp.18

Many changes take place between 1910 and 1920 for Fred and Julia. Fred and Julia divorce.19 Fred is found living in Yuma, Crane, Arizona. He has a new wife, Agnes. He is 47 years old and Agnes is 34. Fred is again working as a barber.20

Maude is living in Phoenix with her mother who has several roomers living with them. One of the roomers is Jesse Palmer, a printer.21 He later marries Maude.22 About 1922 Jesse takes Maude and Julia to Los Angeles, California where he continues to be a printer.23

On the 1930 California census, Jesse and Maudie are still living in Los Angeles and Jesse is doing printing jobs.24 Jesse dies in San Francisco, California on 14 June 1942.25 Maudie dies 14 Oct 1975 in Los Angeles26

On the 1930 census, Fred and Agnes are again in Maricopa County but in Glendale and have a rooming house.27 It is not known when Fred and Agnes move to California but on 9 Jan 1948 Fred dies in Kern County.28 Agnes Marie dies later on 13 May 1953 in Placer County.29
