  • Notes 
    • Letter received from Katie W. Ward at 842 Steves Ave, San Antonio, Texas 78210 on Sept 2, 1964.
      Dear Janice,
      Sorry to be so late in answering your most welcome letter, but have been trying to get some informatiion for you on the Lipps family. Am very sorry I know very little about my grandfather's people. I never even saw my grandmother, she died when I was a baby. But my grandfather lived with my mother and father from the time I was a little girl until I was seventeen. He passed away in Oct. 1909. I don't remember the day. He was very feeble for years and mother and I nursed him until his death. He was a wonderful person. I loved him dearly. He was a real Christian, studied and read his bible every day. And really lived a Chritian life. They say grandma was a sweet person, quite and very reserved. She died young. They had eleven children I believe. I went to Gonzles Sunday to see Aunt Nettie and see if she could tell me anthing. She said she didn't know anything. None of us ever knew where the family bible was or who got it. Grandpa might have given it to his older daughter. But I never saw or heard of it. I can give you the name sof each of his children but I don't know when they born or where. There are only two left and that is Aunt Nettie and Uncle Otis. They were the youngest. Aunt Nettie is in wonderful health and gets around as well as I do. I am 73 and am in very good health, do all my own work, have a single son home with me. My husband passed away two years ago in March. He was 75 at the time of his death. I think it would be wonderful if you could have a family tree. The Johnston have one. I don't have it but there is one for I saw it and it was wonderful.
      Hoping this helps a little, but sorry I don't know more.
      Sincerely Katie W. Ward
      My grandfather children were
      Charlie, Fred, Arrie, Abbie, Libby, John, Nannie, Mollie, Nettie, Otis. Sees like there was another child but I can't remember. You might write Bertha Crundwell that is Aunt Abbie's daughter. She might give you some information. Her address is Mrs. Ernest Crundwell, 334 W. Alamed Ave, Burbank, Calif.
