Lucy M. Pippins married J.S. Miles on September 4th, 1920 in New Madrid County, Missouri. The marriage license states that Lucy was from Malden, Dunklin Co., and John was from Parma, New Madrid Co. I was told by the family that he was very much older that she. Something like he was 55 and she was 18. I was also told that they were married for about 18 months and she was killed by someone playing with a gun. Something like that. Does anyone out there know anything about Lucy, who her parents were? I have traced some of the Pippins' from Missouri back to Johnson County, Illinois which was where John Miles' family was from. If you find a newpaper report of the death of Lucy Pippins Miles or one announcing their marriage please let me know. I will be glad to share what I have on Pippins and their ancesters.
