First known ancestor is Henry Younck, I don't know where he was born. His son was BERNARD "BARNEY" YUNCK, born in Missouri October 28, 1852.(Note that the surname spelling change apparently occurred with this generation.)Barney also has a brother that I will have to look up. Barney married MYREY (Mary) ANNA ZACZKOWSKI.Myrey was born in Minnesota June 16, 1860.
They had 8 children: MARY ANNA & OTTO were born in Minnesota.The rest of the children were born in Washington; GREGORY, JOSEPH, WILLIAM, THERESA, CECILIA, LINUS
I copied this from the Minnesota forum but will post more details later.
