It is believed that Stephen Hipp came to America from the German area known as the Lower, or Bavarian, Palatine of Western Germany. The name Palatinate points to two historically different districts and former states in Germany. While one is found in southeastern Germany, the other is in southwestern Germany. We call the latter the Lower Palatinate. This part of the Palatinate is situated between Luxembourg and the Rhine River, and France in the southwest. Because of its relationship with the Rhine river, we also call it the Rheinisch (Rhenish) Palatinate. Until 1918 it was connected through the Wittelsbach line of royalties to Bavaria. In 1946 it became a district of the modern state of Rheinland-Pfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate). It now covers an area of 19,800 sq. km, or 7,643 sq. miles. Its capital is Mainz.
