I am seeking information about JAN KRIHO, who emigrated to the US around 1900, probably from the village of VITTENCZ (present day name CHTELNICA, Slovak Republic), near Brezova pod Bradlom. Jan appears to have had a brother living in Chicago at the time of his arrival.
Jan's wife ROZA PETRYK (PETRICHA) and two children, MIKLOS and DOMINIK KRIHO followed Jan to the US in 1906. Jan and Roza had two more children, STEPHEN & JULIA and were living near St. Stephen, Ohio when Jan was killed in a quarry accident in 1909. Dominik & Miklos were placed in an orphanage following Jan's death.
Roza remarried (MICHAEL CZERNIEJEWSKI) and moved to Dubois, IL with Miklos, Stephen & Julia. No further record has been found regarding Dominik.
The KRIHO surname was apparently changed to KRICHO when MIKLOS (NICHOLAS) and STEPHEN KRIHO subsequently moved to St. Louis, MO.
I am also seeking ancestry information about my maternal grandparents ADOLPH GOTTLEIB WETZ (VETZ) who emigrated from LOMZA, POLAND in 1902 and MARIANNA SIEMIATKOWSKA, who emigrated at age 18, from GOSCISZKA, PLOCK, POLAND in 1906. Gosciszka is located close to ZIELONA where my great-grandparents JAN SIEMIATKOWSKI and TEOFILA ZALEWSKA were married. Other nearby towns are Zuromin and Ciechanow. Adolph Wetz and Marianna Siemiatkowska were married in St. Louis, Mo in 1907 at St. Stanislaus Kostka RC Church.
