Gladys C. Tippet

I've "rescued" three old photographs belonging to the TIPPIT or TIPPET Family of Michigan. The first is one of Gladys TIPPIT which was taken at the Eskil Studio in Iron Mountain, MI. The photograph appears to have been taken in the later 1890's or early 1900's with Gladys just an infant at the time. The second photograph is one of Sarah CUNDY TIPPET and was also taken at the Eskil Studio in Iron Mountain, MI, most likely in the 1890's. Sarah appears to be in her teens or 20's at the time. The third photograph is also one of Sarah CUNDY TIPPET, this one taken at the L. Winsor Studio in Champion, MI in the 1880's or 1890's with Sarah appearing to be in her teens.

Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding this family:

Gladys C. TIPPET was b. Apr 1899 in Michigan to parents James Blight TIPPETT (1863-1906) and Sarah Jane CUNDY (b. 1876). Gladys’ parents were married in Iron Mountain, MI on 20 Apr 1898 listing their parents as Thomas TIPPETT and Mathilda BLIGHT and Thomas CUNDY and Emma HILL. Gladys had one sibling, a sister Iva Mathilda TIPPETT (1900-1901). Gladys married John F. JOHNS (b. 1899) and together they had one child. In 1930 Gladys was living in Detroit, MI.

Census records provide the following details:
