Growing to manhood in Grant County, he followed the occupation of a farmer, and in Oct. 1915, he was married to Miss Clara Swiggun, also of Blanchardville. The following spring, Mr. and Mrs. Ula moved to Clark County and settled on a farm in Eaton Township near Greenwood, where they have made their home since.

The following Sunday Mr. Ula took a turn suddenly for the worse and a second operation was performed.
