Rev. Henry N. Sipes died June 20, 1865 at the parsonage of the E. Washington M. E. Church in Washington, D.C.In 1860, he was living in Washington, was 28 years of age, and stated he was born in Pennsylvania.
My ancestor was married secondly to a girl named Mary Eleanor (aka Ellen, aka Nellie) Sipes who was born in Maryland in 1824 according to the 1850 census of St. Mary's County, MD.
Family lore says that she was the sister or daughter of a Protestant minister.
I'd appreciate any assistance any one might be able to provide.Thanks!
