I am looking for info on my great great great grandfather Jeremiah Tripp Jr. 1830-1865.  I am at a dead end with his mother Patience York.  His father was Jeremiah Tripp son of Silas Tripp. 

I have been told many times that an Indian connection might have come into the family threw Patience York.  Can't find her father or mother.  Would appreciate any help.

Jeremiah Tripp Jr. died in civil war battle in virginia.  Battle of Antietam, Battle of Ford Steadman.  I have found a picture of him and his head stone in virginia cemetary.

Raymond Maine Families by Robert Taylor says she was PERHAPS the d/o Stephen York & Sarah Strout. This work is all unsourced and he offers no reason why he thinks this - so tread with caution.

Concerning Indians - Tripp, Strout, Verrill, Cobb, Chipman, Thurlow, Edwards - these families intertwine frequently over multiply generations and they all have rumors of "Indians" in the tree. Just where it might come from is a great mystery. One of these families is my own and I have been searching for years, but have yet to find anything concrete to support the stories. If it is there, it appears to be way back in the 1600s. Perhaps it is in the Tripp, Thurlow, or Edwards family lines, but I at this point I am not convinced the stories are true.

Patience York parents MIGHT be Samuel York and Elizabeth Hoyt?

Please contact me. My great grandfather is Gardner Tripp, son of Cinderella and Daniel Tripp. The family is from Poland Maine and Raymond Maine. I have some information and maybe able to connect you with some people who may be able to help you out with your research. I myself have hit a wall with my research. I do know that Cinderella was Native American. She belonged to the blackfoot tribe. I have information going out to the tribe to get documents from them. Both Cinderella and Daniel are buried at Black Cat District Cemetery in Poland Maine. I can provide you a copy of a picture of their headstone. Also, Gardner and his wife Eleanor (my great grandmother who lived with me throughout my childhood), are buried at Highland Cemetary in Poland Maine. Hope to hear from you soon as I am missing pieces too....we might be able to share information and get somewhere! And from what Eleanor Tripp told me about her mother-in-law, Cinderella, she was an Indian Princess...

Cinderella Tripp (wife of Daniel Tripp) was born 1-Feb-1857 in Raymond, ME, 3rd child of Jeremiah Tripp.


She is found in the household of her father in the 1860 Census at age 2

Sorry, but she is not an "Indian Princess"/

Do you have anything to prove that she is not Native American? My grandfather is her son. The records we have prove otherwise.

Comment by Nancy Lecompte on October 24, 2014 at 9:12am

I provided you with a link to my proof of who she is. Her birth was recorded in the Raymond town records. A copy of that record is found on FamilySearch and in the Maine State Archives in Augusta. Just follow the link I provided.

Please share your proof that what you say is true. Take a picture of your records and share them here so everyone can benefit.

My grandmother, Doris Faye Tripp, married names were Doris Dulac and Doris Babicki, daughter of Gardner Tripp and Eleanor Keene Tripp, has a lot of the documents. She passed away last year and I am in the process of going thru everything. It will be sometime until I get all the documents gathered to provide them to everyone unfortunately. I am also in the process of gathering birth certificates to submit to the Blackfoot Tribe to get IB ID numbers for my ancestors... it will take sometime but as soon as I get everything I will share it.
