Donley County

George Melton Rippetoe was the son of William Newsome Rippetoe 1843 1924 and Margaret Ann Linney 1847 1912
I see you have the info from his death record. The name George Milton Rippetoe is the alias. His birth name is William Parish Rippetoe and he was born in Montague County, Texas.

All of his census records and his WWI Draft Registration have his name as William Parish, Will P or W P. I have not found him in 1940. Family lore says he was in trouble with the law in Oklahoma so he started using George Milton on records and he even used one of his sons Social Security numbers. He started using the alias at some point after the 1930 census. He signed his wife's death record Bill Rippetoe. The informant on his death record is Mrs Dora Rippetoe. She did not know his mother's name and she gave his desceased wife's birth location as his birth location. His wife is Geneva Maude (Brown) Rippetoe.

I have posted his WWI and WWII Draft Registration on his memorial to show the name change. (Find A Grave contributor Rebecca Boardman)
