Squire W. Tudor
Hi Nona,

I am the person on Ancestry with the obituary for Squire, my gg-grandfather. I am not sure if it was from when he died or a reprint of "30 Years Ago Today" in the local paper from 1923, but it is old.

I had not noticed the discrepancies between it and the date on the grave, I will look.

I can add the info for Nannie Yates Tudor, too.

Danke Schoen for Stangel memorials
Nona, just a short note to express my heartfelt appreciation for your efforts in documenting Manitowoc County graves. Thanks especially for the work you did on my wife's cousin, Elizabeth Mae "Bette" (Hurst) Stangel -- memorial # 94353585.

If you are open to it, I would like to take over management of it so I can add relevant life details & family links. It's just a bonus that she & her husband, George W. "Butch" Stangel are US Navy veterans of WW-II. If you want to hold on to it, just send me a message via Find A Grave & I'll give you the information. Thanks in advance for your consideration of this request.

Namasté, "PJ" Braun, ETCM/USN-retired (#46869838)

Joe W Tippit Sr
RE: Hi
There was a child. Mary Pearle died in child birth, but the child was born alive. Older members (both Tippit and Watters) of the families say that the child lived about a week. The little girl is buried beside her mother. Shortly after the death of the child, Mary Pearle's mother, Mary Elizabeth Bownds Watters, died, June 1906, and is buried next the child.

Jerry Don Wilson (a descendant of the Tippit and the Watters families) knows, and has talked to family members who knew both Joseph and Mary Pearle. We know the marriage did occur. We are still searching family letters and documents to discover the little girl's name.

Best regards,

Joe W. Tippit Sr.

Joe W Tippit Sr
RE: Hi
Joseph Franklin Tippit was my Grandfather's younger brother. My Granduncle. Known as Joe, I am named after him. I am Joe, but not Joseph.

I have touched his first wife's headstone. It says, "Wife of Joe Tippit"

Joseph and Mary Pearl Watters married about 1904 or 1905 in Soper, Choctaw County, Oklahoma. Mary Pearl died February 25, 1906 in child birth. Therefore, there would be no census record. Have you tried to find a marriage record in Indian Territory, Oklahoma? We have. Those records rarely exist. Mary Pearl is buried in the same cemetery near Joseph's older sister Martha Tippit Wilson.

Joseph's second wife was Ada Dell Parker. Joe and Ada married August 17, 1913 in Round Timbers, Baylor County, Texas. (Over seven years after Mary Pearl's death.) You say that Joe and Ada had only one son. Actually, Joe and Ada had four sons and three daughters. Their first three sons died at, or shortly after birth. The first two sons were twins.

I have visited with their daughter, Hattie Lee Tippit Russell, at several Tippit Reunions at Temple, Bell County, Texas.

I am correct when I say that Joseph had two wives.

Best regards,

Joe W. Tippit Sr.

Nona, it's great to be your cousin, no matter how distant. Now we need to find William and Margaret.........

RE: Hey
I think it is in ElDorado Arkansas, which is Union County. Going by bio, that would be correct. I sent a correction request to originator. Good luck!!! Sorry I wasn't able to fulfill your photo request.
