I'm working on a major deadend and came across some info that might be useful to Sipes/Stipes researchers.
My direct ancestor, Daniel J. Cardwell, was born in 1820 in TN. In the 1880 census he stated that his father was born in VA and his mother was born in PA. So, I started going through the 1880 census looking for people that were born in PA.
I found the following;
John Stipes. born about 1817 in PA. He is married to a Manerva (Last Name Unknown). The oldest child in their home is Richard Stipes (born in 1850 in TN).
ANYONE have any connections to this man?????? Siblings???
