  • Tiptonint (Kennesaw, GA).  Private Jason Vander Tipton, Company I, 5th Florida Infantry is Tiptonint 's paternal great great grandfather. Tiptonint writes: "Jason was the son of Benjamin Tipton. Benjamin was born in 1804 in Burke County, GA and migrated to Southwest, GA during the 1827 Land Grant. Benjamin is buried in Cedar Springs, GA next to his wife Elizabeth Bostick Tipton. Benjamin's father was Thomas Tipton who migrated to Georgia from Virginia. He received 4 land grants in Burke County, GA with the first one dated March 07, 1785. Thomas, Benjamin and Jason were all Baptist preachers. They are descendants of Jonathan Tipton, the immigrant, who came to Baltimore, Maryland, from England, via Jamaica, in the 1670's. The Tiptons were in England for several hundred years. DNA tests have revealed that we are of Nordic ancestry, which indicates being a possible part of the Danish Viking invasion of England in the 10th and 11th centuries. The area was called Danelaw, which encompassed most of England, including the part of England the Tiptons came from. Based on this premise, I can say that, "Vikings have been to Tallahassee!!""
