This is a definite long shot, but I recently found on my G grandfather, John's death certificate that his mother's name appears to have been Susan Kriss. Since John was born in 1882, I can only assume she was born ca. 1862. The certificate says she was born in Slovakia, though the 1920 census says John's parents were from Poland.
Her husband was apparently also named John, also from Poland/Slovakia.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
