Photo Details

A photo of the Gripman brothers, Hiram and William, in the Civil War. Elder brother William (on the right in the photo) survived the war, got married to Lucina Barr in 1867, had a son and died in 1913 at the age of about 70.

Younger brother Hiram also survived the war, got married to Abbie Blair in 1889, had a son in 1890 and died in 1914 at about the age of 68.

In the 1900 census Hiram is widowed and living with his brother William and wife in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. His son is not mentioned on that census so it could be assumed he gave his son up to be raised by someone else upon the death of his wife.
