New Jersey Obituaries - 1902 - William Champlain Lippincott, Sr.
William Champlain Lippincott, Sr., of Little Silver, died at his home yesterday morning at half-past twelve o’clock, aged 68 years. His death was due to a complication of diseases, which began with a heavy cold a week ago last Sunday. Three years ago Mr. Lippincott had a severe attack of the grip and the disease left him with a weak heart. He was confined to his bed during the week preceding his death. It is a singular coincidence that Mr. Liippincott’s father, mother and his only daughter all died in April. The daughter Edith May, died in 1878 from burns received while standing by a bonfire. She was seven years old.
Mr. Lippincott was born at Little Silver in the house now occupied by Thomas Holland. He had always lived in that village and had been a farmer all his life. He was one of the stanchest (sic) supporters of the Little Silver Methodist church. He had been a member of the church for the past 22 years and he had occupied many official positions in the church. Among these were Sunday-school superintendent, treasurer of the board of trustees, steward, class leader and for the past year had been first vice president of the Epworth league.
Thirty-three years ago Mr. Lippincott married Catharine Bowne, daughter of the late Samuel Bowne of Leonardville. His widow survives him, together with one son, William C. Lippincott, Jr., who is married and who lives at home. He also leaves one brother, John H. Lippincott of Little Silver.
The funeral will be held on Friday afternoon at the house. Rev. W. A. Lilly will have charge of the service and it is expected that a number of the former pastors of the Little Silver Methodist church will be present also. The body will be buried in the Little Silver cemetery.
