My gg Grandfather George Bond Tipton (b. 12/12/1841 d 12/13/1921) married Elizabeth A. Garwood (b. 9/5/1846 d 1/23/1913)in August of 1880 in Cloud County, Kansas. They had a son Cloud Arthur Tipton born 10/19/1884 in Cloud County died 6/10/1951 buried in MT. Hope Cemetery in Elk, Kansas.
At some point my gg grandparents went to St. Joseph County, Indiana for a while because my great grandfather Chester Ammon Tipton was born there on 3/14/1888. Possibly to visit relatives of Elizabeth since she was born in Indiana.
Elizabeth A. Garwood had married Hiram Post in 1870 and they moved to Cloud County, Kansas in 1872.
If anyone has any information on my Tipton line I would greatly appreciate it. I seem to keep hitting brick walls with them.

Also that there used to a "Bethel Church" by the cemetery. Also the rumour is that there are Queens buried there. (I am a descendent of William H. Queen who arrived in Jewell 1870's.) Can anyone tell me anything about this church and cemetery? Thanks.
