I just stumbled onto this forum & I'm thrilled. I have some geneology from my sister -- Jesse (dates unk., married Mary McCune) -- Lowery Edward (1841-1929, Texas) -- Edward Bayard Winston (1916 - 1978, Texas) -- me, Edward Bayard (1954 -- , born Germany, now in California).
I found a list of descendents of Edward Ross Rippy (b. Dublin, Ireland) -- it has a Jesse Rippy living about the same time as my gggrandfather, but shows him married to someone other than 'my' Jesse's named wife. Different person? Misteak? Second marriage? Anyone know?
Thanks -- I have unfortunately become isolated from my family & really want to reconnect & learn my forebears' history.
