According to Myles Kippley's bio in the 1970 Morrison County Atlas, Myles' dad was Henry and his grandfather was John (pictured), who settled in Agram township around 1880. The 1905 Minnesota census says that John was born in New York of German parents, and Katherine was born in Wisconsin, also of German parents. Henry was 12 in 1905 so he wasn't born yet when this pic was taken in 1891.

The atlases maybe contained more Kippley photos, but these four are the ones I saved, partly because I recognized the name and partly cuz the wedding photos below were taken by the same photographer who took mom and dad's wedding pics--see the columns and staircase backdrop? ☺
Myles and Wilma Kippley were married after WWII but earlier than Ray and Dolores by a whole 5 months.

According to a comment left by their daughter, the smaller pic was taken at Myles and Wilma Kippley's wedding reception. Pictured with them are Myles' parents (Henry and Clara Kippley) and Wilma's parents (Regina and Mike Flicker) and Wilma's grandparents on the Boser side. Thanks, Carol!
Ray and Dolores (Faust) Kippley

This couple's particularly cool because their daughter Janice married my cousin Roger (July 12, 1980). How can they be married 32 YEARS already? They have six kids, each one more fun than the last one.
A few of THEM are parents already, too. Wow!
