The Ulster Scot now has their June 2011 issue online for downloading. Page 14 has an article on Dr. William Rippy, linking the lineage to Ripy Whiskey in Kentucky. Note that I've linked to the page from which you can download the publication. When I did so, it opened in Adobe Flash, but my Firefox 3.6 browser bogged down later. The Adobe Flash plug-in apparently started using all the memory I had. I ended up uninstalling Adobe Flash from Firefox.
