I'm researching the SHIPLA / SIPLA Family Tree & History.
Our family came from Bohemia, Czechoslavakia sometime around the 1880's. Anton Shipla was 4 years old when he left in 1887, along with some of the family. We believe he entered the USA through Ellis Island, New York. Looking for settlements he may have lived until arriving in Friendship, Wisconsin. Anton Shipla changed the family name to SIPLA, sometime during the 1900. Anton Shipla/Sipla had 6-Brothers & 3-Sisters ????
James, Mathias, Michael, Joseph, Mathew, Andrew Vlach/Sipla, Barbara, Ann, & Mary.
He married MARIE LINHART on Feburary 27, 1908, are NOT sure where? could have been in Indiana or in Wisconsin.
We are also looking for info on Marie (Linhart) Shipla/Sipla.
The Family would appreciate any help in retreiving information that anyone may have so we may know of our Family History.
