The Ripple information I have just gotten (yesterday, Easter Sunday), is as follows:
Henry Rector Ripple b 12 July 1848 Salina, AR parents John Ripple & Miranda ??
Henry m Sarah Elizabeth Smith (I have a photo copy of a photograph of them, it's poor quality, but it is visible)
Their children were: Mary Ripple m John Harris Thomas M. (Bud) Ripple never married Miranda Elizabeth Ripple m James Levi Sims Fannie Ripple m D.D. Mullins Harriet Ripple m Robert Maxwell Ann Ripple m Dee Towerton Ida Ripple m Marcus Maxwell John Henry Ripple m Ruby Locke George Ripple b Jan 1897 d Feb 1897 Bertie Lee Ripple m Hobart Hooten
I would love to get documentation to put with this information, #1 to verify information & #2 to pass back to the Ripple family.
There is a Ripple family reunion in Arizona the first weekend of December each year.
