Joseph D. Kowalkowski - Minnesota
Looking for information on my great, great grandfather's family.Family history says Joseph D. was born in New York in Feb 1862 to John (Johann) and Anna Kowalkowski. However, I've been unable to locate any record of his birth, so it's possible he was born onboard ship or before they left the old country.
His parents and two or three siblings Anna b.1855, John (b-day unknown) and a baby girl (b-day unknown) immigrated to America in the mid to late 1800's.They supposedly stayed in Buffalo, NY until about 1876, but I haven't been able to obtain any information on them, nor have I been able to locate a birth certificate for Joseph. Can't even find them in the census!
I have a good amount of information on J.D. once the family reached St. Cloud, Minnesota, but I want to know where in Prussi to lookso that I can continue searching for my ancestors.
Any help will be a blessing!
