I would like information on the Thomas Kaminski that was born in Germany/Prussia in 1826, and came to Yorktown Texas in 1876. His daughter Katrina Kaminski Warzecha was my great-great-grandmother. It has been posted on the internet that on his declaration of intention to become a citizen in 1892, his birthplace was listed as Kries Vou Growantz or Growants, Germany/Prussia. I would like to know where this place is located. My theory is that it is maybe Kreis von Graudenz, which would be the county of Graudenz in West Prussia, since 1945 it is called Grudziadz, and it is in Poland. I would like to know if anybody knows the exact birthplace of Thomas Kaminski, or has any other theories of where his birthplace could be. I would also like to know what his parents names were.
