     Estell Sipes was born on 14 November 1881 in Pennsylvania, USA.1,2,3 She was the daughter of John Nelson Sipes and Minerva Sipes.2 She married Wellesley Hux Greathead, son of John Wellesley Greathead and Almire Virginia Dellinger, on 13 December 1913 in Pennsylvania, USA, The following appeared in teh The Fulton County News: Mr. Wellesley H. Greathead and Miss Estelle Sipes, both of this place, were united in marriage December 13, 1913, by the Rev. Samuel M. Perry, a retired Presbyterian minister, in his home in Elkton, Md. Mr. Greathead is a well known business man, and Miss Sipes is a daughter of Attorney J. Nelson Sipes.

It was the intention of Mr. and Mrs. Greathead to keep their marriage a secret until Christmas 1913, because the bride was engaged at the time of her marriage in doing teacher's substitute work in the Rouzerville High School, for Miss. Goldie Mason, of this place, and she did not expect to remain in Rouzerville later than Christmas: But Miss Mason resigned at about that time and the substitute was persuaded by the directors to finish the term, which she did. The object, therefore, in keeping the wedding a secret was to save embarrassment between the directors, the High School principal, and Mrs. Greathead, because of the objection to the employment of married lady teachers.

On Tuesday of last week Mr. and Mrs. Greathead slipped off for a little trip to Philadelphia, returning on Friday, and announcing their marriage to their surprised friends.1,4,5 In the census of 5 January 1920 in First Street, McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, she was listed as the wife of Wellesley Hux Greathead.6 In the census of 2 April 1930 in Ayr, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, she was listed as the wife of Wellesley Hux Greathead.7 Mr. and Mrs. Welles H. Greathead attended the Spanish American War Convention in Gettysburg, PA on Sunday. Welles is a veteran of the Spanish American War.8 Her husband Wellesley died on 16 November 1955 in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania, USA, aged 79 from acute cardiac dilation.2,9 Estell died on 14 October 1977 in Pennsylvania, USA, aged 95.2,10 Estell was buried in 1977 in Fulton Cemetery - Union, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA.2,10
