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.
