Looking for any information on William Mauer, his wife Mary Ann Cieresiewska and any children.
Their son, Walter Charles Mauer, was my husband's grandfather. According to oral family history, Walter came to the US from Poland around 1917. However, his Social Security Application and death certificate state that he was born in Shamokin Northumberland Co., PA . So, Walter, may have been born in Shamokin, in 1901. The family also says that the name was changed from something like Markowski. However, the SS application shows William's surname as Mauer. It is possible that Walter was actually born in Poland, but incorrect information was given on the SS application.
Mary Ann Cieresiewska's name was obtained from the SS application as well. I have been unable to find the surname Cieresiewska anywhere. I'm wondering if the name could have been misspelled?
