    Bob & I were talking to Martha Dybala after Joe Dybala’s funeral. She made the comment that she would not be able to keep the cemetery
    plot(s) clean anymore. We were both dumbfounded. We were not aware that she & Joe had been doing that! Another great testament to the humbleness of Joe and Martha.
    Anyway, plot maintenance needs to be brought up at the next reunion. Also, someone remember to mention that Joe & Martha have been doing this. Something needs to be considered in the interim.

    Anyone who has perused immigration records has surely come across the term “cottager” in there searches.
    Here’s a definitive answer:

    “Most of the rural Czech population at that time would be considered in this peasant class, of which there were three distinct subclasses.

    Sedlaci or Rolnici (farmers) were the most prosperous, since they owned a home and maybe 20 to 100 acres of land.
    Chalupnici (cottagers) owned their home and sometimes a small plot of land.
    Nadenici (day laborers) owned nothing and depended on their day-to-day labors for their livelihood.
