U. C. Pipes is my grandfather and I know very little about him. What I have is below. Paul Bruce Pipes, his son by Elizabeth (Bettie) Byron COOK, was my father. No one in my family know what happened to U. C. after he and Bettie divorced, probably in the early 1900's. Do you have any more information?
I hope this is helpful. Thanks for any information you can give me.
