Margaret and Carl gippe lived in Tampa, Florida in the late 40's. Carl was the oldest brother of 2. William, Daniel's father was the youngest. The last time Dan heard from him was when he came to Rochester to visit in 1944-'45 and went back to Florida and never heard anymore. There are gippe relations up in Ohio.
What is your mother's maiden name? If you want us to look up any information let me know.

My Mothers maiden name was Gippe. Her Mother was Margaret Gippe
who died in 1918 or 1919. Her father Carl Gippe remarried and lived in Florida until his death in
the early 60's. That is all I know, my Mother has died and I realized I knew nothing of her family. Thanks
for responding to my email question.

Dear Brenda,

Thanks for responding so fast. Carl was the oldest of 2 boys in the family. William, his brother was the father of daniel, Kenneth, and bill gippe. He died in the around 1982. There are quite a few Gippe's in the Rochester, NY. area, but they are all offspring from the bill Gippe family.
We had 6 kids, Kenneth had 4, and Bill had 8 kids. Dan is the only one left in the immediate gippe family. He is 67 yrs. old.
Where are you from? I hope this will help a little bit. If there is anything I can do I would be glad to help you. What was your mother's first name?
I will be waiting for your response.

The last we heard about Annabell, your mother's sister: She was in a nursing home about 2-3 years ago in West milton, Ohio. There is also a Herman Gippe, but don't know where he fits in. The person we got this information from is Billy Gippe, my husband, Dan Gippe's nephew. He lives in Watertown, NY Here is his telephone number if you would like to call him. (315)654-3296 Dan tried calling the Ohio numbers that billy gave to him, but they were no longer in service.
Keep me posted on this search. I will try to get you somemore inf.

Classification: Query
Surnames: Gippe

On a random search on "Gippe" I found a string of emails associated with Gippe Family History that specifically related to me. You mentioned the "bill" gippe family of Rochester, NY with 8 offspring. One of them was William (Bill) Eugene Gippe, Jr. - my father. I also have two brothers, William (Bill) Eugene Gippe, III and Kyle Patrick Gippe. Just thought I'd throw that out there for anyone and I'D LOVE TO HEAR MORE! :)
