LOOKING FOR ANY INFORMATION I CAN FIND OUT ABOUT MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER DAISY STAPLES/COOK MARRIED TO GEORGE WILLIAMS. RECIDED IN COLUMBIA OHIO. SHE HAD ONE DAUGHTER SARAH BORDERS WHOM DEPARTED HER LIFE AS WELL
I'm Polish and I'm looking for my family which went to USA many years ago. My great-great-grandmother's name was Marianna Bieńkowska (this is surname after marriage, I don't know what was her maiden name). Her siblings and parents went to USA and only she remained in Poland. One of her sisters probably married Skowroński in USA and they had two daughters at least. I know this from photos which they sent to my great-grandmother's sister - Marianna Karpińska (nee Bieńkowska). They also sent a lot of things from USA, for example, a doll. The photos depict these daughters. One of the pictures depicts nurses in the hospital. There is Elżbieta among them. The other picture depicts young girl – Anna Ludwika. She is 9 years old. The photos were taken in 1947 or shortly after it. In short, I'm looking for people who know something about the fate of my predecessors. Texts on the back of the photos are:
Anna Ludwika Skowrońska – my youngest daughter. She is 9 years old.
This is my daughter Elżbieta, she left school at the hospital on 15th February 1947. She is my second daughter. She is 21 years old.
The texts are in Polish and they are not written correctly (something like this: I is my daughter Elżbieta). I attach these photos. On the photo with nurses there is an arrow which shows Elżbieta. The other photo shows young Anna Ludwika. I also have the photo of Marianna Karpińska. If you know something abou them, please contact me. I woud be very grateful. I hope that my English is understandable :)
One suggestion would be to search through Ellis Island immigration data to find out where they were heading when they came to the US. Do you know what state they settled in? What city? Anything you can see about the name of the hospital where the photo was taken?
My mother's side of the family came from Galicia, and I've had very good luck using the Bukowsko triangle genealogy site with help from people on both sides of the Atlantic. Maybe there are Americans looking for their Polish ancestors and you just have to find a way to connect with them. Good luck!
I am looking for anyone who can give me a tip about my family. I can get up to my Great-great grand father, Morton Gunter (father of Pebble Mae Gunter who married Fred Curtis), but after that the information is difficult to come by. Is there anyone who recognizes any of the following names from their trees?
Mary Etta Parsley
Pebble Mae Gunter
Lillie Mae Hayes
The dates range from the 1700s to around the 1940s . Thank you!
