  1. Iowa, Marriages, 1809-1992, shows Clara Shupitar (b. 14 September 1888 d. January 1982) marrying Adolph Dohnalek (b. abt 1885) on 02 Nov 1910 in Cedar Rapids, Linn, Iowa.

    Sisters Clara and Annie (b. 06 Sep 1898 d. 21 Dec 1987), the daughters of Joseph and Mary Shupitar living in Oxford, Johnson, Iowa. Anna survived the illness/accident that sent her to the hospital in 1917 and went on to marry Albert H. Kadera (b. 22 Feb 1892 d. 28 Oct 1969) on 10 Sep 1920, in Oxford, Johnson, Iowa.

    Little Irene (b. 1917) was just a little baby when this postcard was mailed.

  2. Great research, Iggy! So glad to hear that Anna made it out of the hospital. It sounded fairly serious, so I was wondering, for sure.
