Tracy, hi my name is nancy kowalczyk carter and I just had seen your posting on this site. I hope I can help you with some information on John Kowalczyk. He was my grandfather. he had passed away before I was born. My father is Donald Kowalczyk, and he has eight siblings which all stayed in Illinois. But, the only living siblings left are 2. His twin(Rich) and sister Virgie. My parents still live in Peru, IL. and he knows so much more than I do. If you are still interested in knowing more please contact me.
