I talked with your Uncle Nick by telephone about 3 months ago.He said that they lived on 9202 University St in the 1930's.Jacob Gbur lived at 9026 Dobson St. which is only a short distance.Tradition in Jacobs family says that they had cousins and a half brother in Chicago. Jacob also came from Dobra, Galicia to America in 1902.He worked for 2 years in the coal mines of Pa. and then returned to Dobra for his family.His wife Mary and son Michael came back with Jacob in 1904.Jacob had a son Nick who was born 1908 in Chicago. Nick's godparents were Andrew and Taina (Piotrowski) Kowalczyk. Do you recognize the name Andrew Kowalczyk?
A John Gbur lived at 9314 University St in Chicago. John had a brother Michael who also lived in Burnside.They claimed that they had Gbur cousins in Chicago. Their father was Martin Gbur(Martin died in Galicia around 1894).I coorespond with Olga Gbur of Dalton IL who is the daughter in law of this Michael. Welcome to the Gbur family web page.
