In the ten years that I've been researching I've heard that no one had proof who Fielding Fipps' parents were. Everyone "knows" it's John Fipps and Mary Fleshman but there was no solid documentary proof.
I believe I have found some.
I was looking through my Great Great Great grandfather's Civil War Pension File (Eli Phipps, Fielding's son) and found an affidavit from a John Fleshman stating that he was Eli's second cousin. Upon researching John Fleshman's ancestry he is indeed Eli's Cousin through Mary Fleshman.
Just thought I'd share.
I also found that Fielding was killed by having his chest stomped on by a horse or in the words of his daughter in an affidavit in the same file "a horse broke his breast".
Email me if you have any questions or would like a copy of this file.
