Hello, I've seen these names mentioned in other forums and wondered if possibly they could be ancesters from Missouri.
My G. grandfather William Claude Sipes is the the oldest ancester that I can verify to my surname. He was born Abt. 1898 in MI and died around 1978-1979 if my memory serves. unfortunatly I'm unable to find any match in public records. I believe he had siblings but have not found such information.
Wish I had his father's name and maybe there's a link somewhere with your ancesters. If you would like, I would be happy to send you my Tree file to your Email. Let me know.
