I was born on Kippy's birthday so we always had a special bond. His mother (Mussy) lived next to my grand parents (David & Angilly Scott). I am Ordway's middle daughter. I am sure we are related but I am not sure exactly how. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and by condolences go out to his family and friends. RIP Kippy.
