Hi, My grandfather was Michael Kinowski. He was born in Potsville or Scranton Pa about 1890. He had 3 brothers.John and he were the youngest and their mother was a Josepha Kurumka (?).He had two older brothers, born in Poland/Germany.They are Joe (Vincent), and Walter (William). Their mother was different.Their father was Joannis (John) Kinowski.He worked in the coal mines before moving to upstate, NY. He arrived in the USA the first time in 1885, again in 1907-9 and again in 1910. (There are many spellings of Kinowski by the way.)
Is there anyone out there with additional information regarding the parents, children etc?
We know that John had a son with his wife Maria (Katy) and moved to Detroit area.She died and the son, Jack , was raised in an orphanage and then by a lovely couple.
We also know that Joe had a daughter Julia, who had a daughter Marcella ( Russell) .They have a daughter who is alive somewhere .
Walter (William) was married to a Rose. They separated and she and the child(ren) moved to Schnectady NY.What happened to them we have know idea.
Help!Not only am I looking for present day connections but a probable connection to the name Wyzykowski (other spellings too) and Chelminievch or Helminievch. Thanks so much for reading my information and replying if you have any info.
