Walter was the best man in Henry Joseph Sejda's (1913-1980) and Irene Regina (Kazmierski) Sejda's (1915-1998) wedding in 1943.

The related references are enumerated below.

Evidence of the Marriage of Walter L. Sejda and Mary (Gorczyca) Sejda (1917-1992)

Walter Sejda and Mary "May" Sejda were probably married on 18 Aug 1943, somewhere in the Southern United States before he went off to World War II.

The related references are enumerated below.

  1. Mary May Sejda (Gorczyca) Obituary[5] asserts that Mary "May" Sejda married Walter L. Sejda on 18 Aug 1943. A review of this assertion states:
    • The obituary was published almost 50 years after the marriage, so this could be in error but is assumed to be correct. This is reasonable evidence.
  2. Pamphlet entitled Funeral Mass for Mary (May) Gorczyca Sejda[13] asserts that Mary (May) Gorzyca Sejda was married to Walter Sejda for 18 years. A review of this assertion states:
    • This pamphlet does not give a marriage date, but the time between his marriage date from the obituary and his death date from the obituary is 18 years 1 month 24 days. This is likely from the same set of family members so probably is not significantly more evidence that the obituary.
  3. 20 Aug 1995 Notes from Discussion with Irene and Barbara Sejda[14] asserts that Walter Sejda and Mary Gorczyca were married in Southern US, possible New Orleans, during World War II. A review of this assertion states:
    • This is an indicator that they were not married locally. This is unusual, so we should expect Irene's recollection was pretty accurate.

Evidence of the Military of Walter L. Sejda

The related references are enumerated below.

  1. 1943 Hammond directory for Sejda[15] asserts that Walter Sejda was in the US Army. A review of this assertion states:
    • This is evidence he was in the Army in World War II.

Evidence of the Name of Walter L. Sejda

On his birth certificate, he was named Wladyslaw Boleslaw Sejda. However, throughout his life, he used Walter Sejda, Wladyslaw was never seen again. His wife's obituary states his middle initial was L. Therefore, his name should be Walter, with Wladyslaw Boleslaw noted in the record.

  1. Władysław Boleslaw Sejda Birth Certificate[4] asserts that Wladyslaw Boleslaw Sejda was born 11 Jan 1916 at 511 Fields Ave, E. Hammond, North Township, Lake County, Indiana. A review of this assertion states:
    • This is his official record of birth and is the only place where this name is used. I am going to put it in the other names. It is unusual because the rest of his siblings had american names (Leon, which was the same in Polish, Henry and Stanley, although Stanley's birth record has not been found, so could be Stanislaw). This is convincing evidence of his Polish name at birth.
  2. 1920 US Census for Leon Sejda and Family[1] asserts that Levon Sijda, Kammila Sijda, Leon Sijda, Henry Sijda, Walter Sijda, Stanley Sijda, Tony Sijda, Walter Bukowski, Walter Vanchowski and Adolph Shuperski appeared together in the 1920 US Census at 511 Fields Ave, Hammond, Lake Co, Indiana.

  2. 1920 US Census for Leon Sejda and Family[1] asserts that Levon Sijda, Kammila Sijda, Leon Sijda, Henry Sijda, Walter Sijda, Stanley Sijda, Tony Sijda, Walter Bukowski, Walter Vanchowski and Adolph Shuperski appeared together in the 1920 US Census at 511 Fields Ave, Hammond, Lake Co, Indiana.
