Thanks for replying. I have Wm. Alonzo Tippie, Mar 16 1851 OH - May 13 1924 KS. wives: Sarah GORDON (Spears???) md Mar 18 1874 (no ddate) Susan Lurene 'Lou' BANKS md Nov 18 1879 (d. Nov 1901). & Dalia DURNELL (Smart, Grimes) md Dec 29 1903 (no ddate).
per 1880 census: Orpha was b. ca 1877. Effie was born in Aug of 1879, so either Effie was born out of wedlock to Lou Banks & W.A. Tippie, or the girls' mother was Sarah.I just figured Sarah had died???
So did Sarah & Wm. get a divorce if she was the Sarah Spears & not Sarah Gordon?
This isn't my fam. line, I've been trying to help a friend of my gdau's family trace their ancestors.
