NOTES FROM SUBMITTER: "This Jacob Cipperly or Sipperly or Ciperly was b. 30 Aug 1747 and baptised on 6 Sep 1747 in St. Peters Lutheran Church in Rhinebck, NY. He was the son of Michael Cipperly and wife Regina Schaffer. He married Elisabeth Dater abt. 1776, possibly at Gilead Lutheran Church in Brunswick. He is buried in Old Melrose Cemetery in Rensselaer Co. His sister, Magdalena of Helena, married David Weatherwax, my ancestor. His sister Catherine married Peter Weatherwax, David's brother.

His sons: Peter Sipperly b. 7 Sep 1777 m. Elizabeth Frettenberg; John Sipperly b. 25 May 1784 m. Mary Hannah Stover; Jacob Sipperly b. 10 Feb 1787 m. Elizabeth Diver. His only daughter Elizabeth Sipperly b. 2 Feb 1780 m. William Baucus

Like many other Rensselaer county families the Cipperlys or Sipperly's descend from the Palatine family of Bernhard Zipperle Hunters List #844 found in the Palatine Families of New York, pages 1142-1146. Since there were several generations of intermarriage with my Weatherwax family I have been working on the Cipperly's as well. Please note the different spelling variations of the surname in the same document."
