I would like any information you can find on L.P. Tanner or Mrs. Erma Tanner. In April 1945 Air Force Capt. L.P. Tanner was transferred from Greensboro N. C. to England. He shipped some personal items from N.C. to Mrs. Erma Tanner at 5221 Perry Cr. Rd. Sioux City Iowa.  I have one of those items with the Railroad Express shipping tags still attached. I believe and am trying to verify that Capt. Tanner died in a plane crash in Scotland in either 1945 or less likely in 1948.
I would appreciate any information you could find about the Tanner family from old city directories, High School year books, census records, obits or whatever. If you enter L. P. Tanner on a search engine you will see the strange story that has piqued my interest.

Thank you for your time.

We are looking for info on great-grandparents in the 1860s-1870s. Charles TRIPP married Edith (Unknown), 4 daughters (no sons), Clara (born Sioux City 1875?), Caroline, Alice, Edith, Family lore has it that Charles was a stage-coach driver on the Deadwood City run, participated in a few Indian fights, and knew both Wild Bill Hickok and Buffalo Bill. Since daughter Clara was born in Sioux City, they may have been married there as well. We don't know if she was the oldest, youngest, or in the middle. Daughter Clara married George Franklin CROWE from Boone Co. IA. He was a railroad brakeman. There is no knowledge about where they married, but they had 3 older boys in the 1890-1900 timeframe (Fredrick Arthur, Charles Kenneth, and Raymond Edward), and a younger son Harry Franklin born 1/9/1913 in Albert Lea MN. Clara's sister Caroline was reportedly married to a wealthy drug store owner during the 1920s'. Clara's son Harry told us he stayed with them for a few years after his mother died (1920-1925 range?). If they still lived in Sioux City, he probably went to school there. He did describe formal dinners every night, dressing up in a suit, with cooks and maids waiting on them. Harry's full name was Harry Franklin Crowe. He is buried in St. Paul MN. Can you give us any help or suggestions as to how to proceed? We have a nephew within a hundred miles of Sioux City who would be happy to help in any way he can. Thanks.
