GEORGE KEIFER HIPPLE
     whose valuable farm of eighty acres of finely cultivated land lies in Clinton township, was born in Miami county, not far from Troy, O.,. April 30, 1850, and is a 
son of David and Elizabeth (Enyeart) Hipple.
David Hipple was born in Pennsylvania, of German parents, and came to Ohio when young, settling in Miami county and marrying there. He followed farming all
his life and he and wife were among the earnest members and liberal supporters of the Christian church. They had four children: Taylor; George Keifer; Angeline,
who is deceased, was the wife of Samuel Hersey; and Laura Belle, who died when young.
George Kiefer Hipple attended the district school nearest his father's farm and assisted there until he was nineteen years of age after which, for a time, he was
in the employ of an express company at Sidney, O. Since then he has resided on his farm where he is extensively and profitably engaged in the poultry business,
making a specialty of White Leghorns, his yards usually having 300 birds, his ready market being at Sidney.
Mr. Hipple was married first to Miss Ella Wilson, of Miami county, who was survived by one daughter, Gertrude, who is the wife of Wade Shilling. In 1882 he
was married (second) to Miss Mary Miller, of Miami county, and they have three children: Harry; Walter, who married Ethel West; and Taylor. Mr. Hipple and
family attend the Methodist Episcopal church. He is identified with the republican party but has never been a seeker for office.
