I hope you are still on the net and will see this message.I think I may have a connection to your family for you.
My name is Bob Benton and I live in La Verne CA.My grandfather Orum Hargrave had a half sister, Florence who married Jesse L. Pipes, both of Indiana, in 1915.
As far as I can tell they had only one son, Carroll D. Pipes, born about 1916 in IN.Jesse died in 1969 and Florecne in 1979, both in Miami-dade Co.
WWII records available on the Internet, show a Ensign Carroll D. Pipes Sr., missing and presumed dead, Feb. 16, 1945.
Your messages says that your father is Don and your uncle is John, yet the miltary records list Carroll as senior.Could there have been a Carroll Jr. who died at an early age?
Anyway, there is a good chance that we are related by a some distance.If so, I can give you a lot of information on your great gradmothers Hargrave family, and some on the Pipes family.
If you think his may be a good connection, e-mail me at
