    This is one of the daughters of Lazo Louis Mitchell, her mother was Pareskeva,the daughter of Pova. Powuna's husband was Frinkoy, and they had six children.
    He remarried later with the help of his sisters-in-laws. Her siblings included Menhi (aka Cornel),Nashta,Luba,Nikola,Wollia,Sturah,and others I will add later.
    She is the woman in the many articals named "Gypsy Lena Miller" with a photo of her funeral on the Sharon Herald web site. Please look it up, it's a very sad story. Most of the children were raised by the father but some by Frinkoy's mother who was "Pavlena A Puri". She is also in the photo.
    If you are lucky enough to find this info and this listing Bravo! You have found a piece of your history!
