Holy cow!Hawkins is only about 30 miles south-west of Phillips (on Hwy 8, I believe)!I'm hoping that these GUNIAs are somehow related!I NEED to know more!
My grandmother, Anelia (Nellie) GUNIA, would have been born somewhere around the 1870s or 1880s, in Poland, I guess.Maried Adam BABULA.Came to the US, and eventually settled in Hawkins, WI.
I know my father had a cabin between Hawkins and Phillips at one time, which may have come from his parents (I'm not sure), but sold it quite a number of years ago.I also know that my grandmother, Anelia GUNIA, owned some land (the land was in her name) up around there, too!
Wouldn't that be interesting if my Anelia GUNIA was the sister to one of your GUNIAs?!
Please, Terry, anything more you could offer, would be wonderful (names, places, dates, papers, pictures, anything)!I've pretty much told you everything I know at this point.I'm going to call my mother tonight, and see if she knows more about Anelia, and if she knows your Joseph, or Helen GUNIA.
Can you tell me more about your grandfather?Name?Dates?Immigration? - maybe that will lead to something else!
I sure hope there's a link, here.I'm kinda at a brick wall, with the GUNIA family, unless I can find out more from my mother, or I can meet someone thru these message boards who can help me out a little bit!
