Victor Achramowicz (sometimes given as Achromowicz or Achromowisz in documents) - killed 3 July 1928 in Kankakee by a high tension wire that had fallen during an electrical storm. Reported in area newspapers.An extract of his death record indicates his wife, Helen A/; his father Steff. (for Stefan?) Achramowicz. He was born 20 August 1896 in Poland and was a cabinet maker. He had been a resident of Kankakee for 10 yrs. (since 1918) and in the U.S. 14 yrs(since c.1914). His address was 506 No. Adams, Kankakee, IL.Burial was in St. Rose Cemetery. I have not yet found a 1920 census record or a WWI draft registration for him.
Michael Achramowicz - WWI draft registration from the Kankakee Valley Genealogy Society (have not found or seen the actual registration card) that indicates he was conscripted May 29, 1918 to Camp Thomas, KY and his address was 579 N. Entrance Ave., Kankakee, IL. (Since I have not seen an actual registration card, I don't know what his occupation was or if he was married.)
Edward Achramowicz and Walter Achramowicz are shown in the KVGS.org publication "Men of St. Stanislaus Parish who have Served Their Country" and they are listed in the WWII section. It just lists their names with no other information.
Would be interested to hear from anyone related to these men or who can find more information on them.There are not that many persons with the surname of Achramowicz in the U.S. that I can find (and from what I've known, not that many in Poland/Belarus), so naturally I'm interested to find out what I can. Any assistance is welcome.
