Bio and Links
Bio Photo I currently live in Fleming Island, FL near Jacksonville, but was born in Waterloo, IA and raised in Grundy Center, IA. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa. I'm married to Deborah Jean Huebner Pike and we have one daughter, Jennifer Rae Pike who lives near Dallas, TX.

I work on Pike family genealogy off and on. I am a direct descendant of the famous Robert Pike of Salem, MA at the beginning of this country. Direct descendants from my father backwards are Luverne Carl Pike, Verne Clement Pike, Joseph Lord Pike, Clement L. Pike and Gilman Pike.

I also do research on the submarine USS Squalus which sank off the coast of Portsmouth NH in 1939. They Navy was able to rescue 33 crewmen, but 26 sailors lost their lives in the flooding of the aft end of the boat. She was later raised and recommissioned USS Sailfish and had a successful career in the Pacific during WW II. My father served on the Sailfish.

RE: Admiral Robert E.M.Ward
Thank you so much for your information. They are small paintings and it helped me a lot to discover that he did have a daughter. she might want them but I realize it would be difficult to find her. They are wonderful little paintings of islands like Fiji or Tonga. i know my aunt was on Tonga because she told me.
Thanks again!

Admiral Robert E.M.Ward
i live in Lehigh Acres, FL. My aunt was a nurse anesthetist in the South Pacific in WWII. She brought back paintings and etchings. She died right after the war and I was only twelve when she died. I have identified most of the art works at this time but the two paintings by E. M. Ward mystify me. Did Admiral Ward Paint? One is dated 1941 and the other 1942.
I did email a naval specialist on Antiques Roadshow who tried to be helpful but had never seen a painting by E. M. Ward.
I remember her saying how wonderful the other nurses and the Navy men also.
My email address is
Also, did Admiral Ward have any children?
Thank you for your help.

RE: Tubbs family tree
Thanks for getting back to me. When I went to the memorial that was set up for Benjamin Tubbs where you normally would see a picture was an emblem of ancestry and along side it was her name K. Pike and that he was her 5th Great Grand father. I am hoping that is true and we can share info.
