I am looking for Linda Belk Smith who posted the following message.... __________________________________________________________ Koss family From Austria Posted by: Linda Belk Smith Date: December 12, 1999 at 18:42:50 of 113
Hi! I am hunting the family of a Jadwiga Koss who came to the US on a ship called the S,S, Southwark from Austria. They came to be reunited with a brother Josef Koss who was my mother's grandfather. Josef was born in Czechoslovakia 2/14/1846 and died 2/6/1910 in Houston, Tx. After marrying Marie Yysusiloroa they set up housekeeping in Bay City, Michigan in 1894 they moved to LaGrange, Tx.
I would appreciate any info on this family.
P.S. They had 7 children: Antonio, Louie, Joe,Jr., Rosie, Libby Marie, Charles (my grandfather) and Ellie Marie. _________________________________________________________
My great grandmother is Ellie Marie Koss-Blackman. I knew that she was from Houston, Texas and her parents were from from Czechoslovakia. Her son was Michael Blackman (my grandfather) and his daughter was June Blackman. (my mother) I was born in Pasadena, TX (South of Houston) and I was adopted....(that is why I have the last name Comeaux) however, I was reunited with my biological mother and other family members later in life.
I currently live in Las Vegas and I am interested in knowing more about this side of my family. Any information would be helpful.I tried to email Linda however the email listed on her account came back inactive returned to sender.
