Welcome to, my web page for the Pipes Family in the United States. 

This site is dedicated to the history of our Pipes forebears and their military service. Our goals are to identify all persons named Pipes who were born before 1900 and connect them to the proper branch of the family and to document as many military careers as possible. We also enjoy documenting our connections to the history of this great country. You will find Pipes ancestors involved in almost every major historical event in this country.

My book about Obediah and Josephine and the Pipes family in central Kentucky is ready to ship.

It is 8.5" x 11" and 258 pages of family history, pictures, stories and information.

Go here to see a preview of the book

The preview is a PowerPoint slide show and is quite large. You may have to download a PowerPoint slide viewer to see it.

Buy the book direct from CreateSpace, the printer/publisher

(CreateSpace generates more income than Amazon and proceeds will be donated to The Old Union Cemetery Fund. The book is priced just above manufacturing/distribution costs) 

Buy the book on

Please tell everyone you know who has an interest in our Pipes and Edwards family history to purchase the book for their family.

Help us honor John Pipes Jr.

He was a soldier, a good man, and deserves our respect. Please help us as we preserve his burial place with a new stone that will last a long time. The Memorial Stone is now in place. Pictures and the story at the Cemetery Site.
