John David Shipley was known to the town people as "Penny John" because he was very conscious of spending money. My father, Claude recalls that his father, John, owned the first Model T Ford in Hamilton County, Tenn. The family first lived on the " creek" (Salecreek) near what was known as Aunt Anne Springs, they later moved to the house on "Shipley Hill".

John was a truck farmer who worked a 80 acre farm. During his farming he raised peaches, apples, watermelons, tomatoes, corn and other smaller crops. He took his produce to the Farmers Market in Chattanooga where it was sold. He and Lettie never had a bathroom in the house on "Shipley Hill". They did have water piped to the house but never installed a toilet or bathtub. He lived on the hill after Mammaw (Lettie) died for about 6 months, then moved in with Bobbie and lived there until his death. He drove his truck until he moved in with Bobbie. He always called me "Lindy". On Saturday night he would sit on the front porch and listen to the Grand Ole Opry on the radio. He belonged to the Masonic Lodge in Salecreek. Notes by Linda Kay Shipley Rompot his granddaughter.

John married Hampton Lettie Jane KEITH on OCT 7 1906 in Unknown. Hampton was born APR 19 1886 in Hamilton County, Tennessee. She died MAR 12 1965 in Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee and was buried MAR 13 1965 in Chattanmilton County, Tennessee Chattanooga Memorial Park.

Known as Lettie Jane, her family did not know her real name until I began this research. She lived on the farm all her life and only left when her dementia became a problem with her memory. She then lived with Bobbie in Chattanooga. Mammaw was a warm, loving person. She was a wonderful cook and canned many types of fruit and vegetables. I remember her on the back porch of the house churning butter. She would take the butter and eggs that her chickens laid to the Shipley grocery store (owned by John's nephew Creed Shipley), in Dayton, Tenn. and sell it to them. She made Mary and I corn shuck hats one summer. Mammaw was a good seamstress and made clothes for Mary and I from flour sacks. She always had a large garden behind the house and which she took care of herself. She never had a toilet or bathtub in the house, but did have water piped in and heated by a wood stove. During later years they had a telephone but never owned a television. Lettie Jane was the name she was known by all the family. Hampton is shown on the Tennessee census of 1900.
