I'm looking for ANY information on BF Rippy (possibly Benjamin Franklin) son of Fredrick Harold Rippy & Lulu M. Tucker. He is my (half) uncle, through his father. While searching yet again for him last night, I stumbled across a 1930 Ray County, MO census in which there was a B.F. Rippy mentioned (age 12) in the household of a Roe & Ethel Tucker. BF was listed as nephew. I KNOW that Lulu was the dau of Benjamin F. & Elvira Frakes Tucker. The age of this BF, Uncle's last name & area make it a distinct possibility that this might be my uncle.
I would REALLY appreciate any information anyone may provide, especially since there is another child listed in this census. If this BF is my uncle, I may also have a previously unknown aunt, as there is a FAY RIPPY, age 9, niece is also listed.
