Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE use the EDIT to ask for transfers, with your ID # and the PHOTO REQUEST if you want a photo of the stone for EACH person listed. I try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, but if they are already listed it is nice if you also request them. I print off the requests from the computer, and the "notes" don't show if you ask for other family members. You have my permission to use my photos of the stones for your family records.

It is my wish that everyone is remembered, this is my way of helping make it happen. We all will make mistakes, I'm happy to make changes and transfer loved ones. I just want to help. I am so thankful for the ones that put family of ours on, some we had no idea where were, so you can see what a blessing Find A Grave has been.

Today this seems to be the case- Author Unknown
An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along the road they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame the old man is walking and the boy is riding." The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions. Later they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk." So they then decided they'd both walk. Soon they passed some more people who remarked, "They're really stupid to walk when they have a donkey to ride." So they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people who shamed them by saying, "How awful to put such a load on a poor donkey?" The boy and man figured they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the donkey and he fell into the river and drowned. The moral to the story? If you try to please everybody, you might as well kiss your ass goodbye!

Having expressed this I have to say, most all of the people are easy to please. There are occasionally some who aren't, it is extremely hard to read people's minds. If you send information try to tell us how you want it added or used. It is really helpful if you send it directly to that persons memorial page, but I'll do my best to add & give credit to you however you get it to me. Thank you all who have sent links and info to make memorials more then just names and dates!

Sipla graves Fordham Cemetery
Hi Luella,
It's me again! I found obits for: 1) a Joseph Sipla born Mar. 10 1895 in Chicago, d. Aug. 1 1974 in Friendship, WI. Son of Mr. & Mrs. James Sipla. It appears he was a bachelor. 2) Next obit is for Mrs. Mary Wilkora Sipla, b. Bohemia Aug. 25, 1873 - d. Feb. 1949 wife of James Sipla, mother of #1 Joseph above. She was survived by her husband and 8 children/several grandchildren at her death. 3) I also have an obit for a Mary Capek Sipla 1896-1947 wife of one of the Mike Siplas. She lived in Friendship at the time of her death & was survived by her husband & 7 children/2 brothers/2 sisters.

They were all interred (per obits) in Fordham cemetery but I don't find memorials for these individuals. I didn't know if you added your memorials from tombstones & they don't have one, or if there are some interments in the cemetery not yet added. I'm not related directly to these people, just got into a newspaper archive & requested all records for Siplas & found these obits.

Thanks for all your wonderful work!!!

Could you transfer Erwin to Linda W. #47832856? She lives in O'Neil and has added many photos for the Bohemian cemetery. I'm Erwin's cousin and live in Massachusetts.

RE: Eliza & Myrtle Wymore
Thanks again for all the hard work you do Luella. Unfortunately, the veterans only get a stone if someone asks for it and apparently that didn't happen. It's supposed to finally get to 70 in Iowa today so plan on getting out for some yard work. It's been a long cold winter. Have a great day! Don

Hi, Luella

Thanks so much for trying to find the headstones for Eliza and Myrtle. I know it can be frustrating when this happens. I really appreciate your help!

Your surname took me back to my childhood. Jack Hinricksen #94609451 was an amazing man. My email is on my profile and if you send me a note I will send you a small local profile of him.

Luella, you are an angel! Thank you again . The picture is so helpful and you are so dear to make the time to take it. I hope one of these days I can make a road trip to Nebraska.

RE: Hollinshead Family

Thank you for the kind e-mail. That is what keeps me going while I try to finish this enormous project (over 12,000 people entering burial locations).

Thanks, I will gladly take the transfer. And thank you for taking the time to post the memorial. We are in West Virginia, and too far away to make it to the cemetery.
