Notes:  Stephania Sikorski was born on 3 Dec 1865, probably in Poland when it was part of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire.  She married Ludwik Opid and they immigrated to the United States in 1889.  The Hamburg Passenger list reports that they sailed on the steamship Breslau, leaving Hamburg on 6 Jul 1889, arriving in Leith (Scotland), final destination America (USA) via Glasgow (Ireland).  In Ludwik's Declaration of Intention, he states that they embarked at Glasgow, and arrived in New York on 25 Jul 1889.  The Hamburg Passenger list reports that their residence was "Kakau, Austria", which most likely was Krakow, Poland.

Stephania Opid monument Ludwig and Stephania had three children while they lived in New York, namely John, Helena, and Felicia, perhaps also known as Lola.  The family moved to Southern California in 1895.  Ludwik was a well-known musician whose instrument was the cello.  He played in recitals and accompanied other musicians and singers.  There is no record of the family in the 1900 USA Census, but it was reported they were in Oregon that summer.

Stefania died 27 Nov 1903, leaving Ludwik to care for their children, then ages 12, 10, and 8 years.  She is buried in the Mountain View Cemetery, Altadena, California.  Her monument is seen in the photograph to the right.
