Ray and Jan Dipley are residents of Joplin MO. Both were born and raised in this area, and have raised their their three children here too. We were lucky and found the Dipley geneology online. We certainly do appreciate the many hardworking family members who have so graciously completed the hard work and thankfully for us, posted it. We also have become aquainted with many good and wonderful "cousins" while gathering this valuable imformation.
The Breazeale geneology on the other hand is proving to be rather like a 'brick wall'. My Sister, Arlene (Breazeale) Carpenter and I have bounced off of that wall many times already. We have started and become discouraged and stopped, then started again, many times. We are finding out what I am sure the Dipley's who began and worked so dilagently on the 'John Dipley Family' Geneology found out, No family story ever gets written without a lot of hard work, sweat, smiles and tears. Hopefully, Arlene and I will start this work, and we can only hope and pray our progeny will continue with their present future generations.
