  1. Sipi, George B.+ - Sergeant - London - not in L&A
    George Roderick Beethoven Sippi brother of Arthur (baseball player) and William and son of Charles Augustus Sippi, London. He died in 1907. What does "not in L & A" mean?

  3. Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
