Hi Laurie, My name Maribeth (Ras) Redick. I also am doing research on my grandfather Jacenty Ras. My Jacenty Ras died 1926 or 1927 at the age of 35. He came from the Austrian part of Poland. He married my grandmother Rozalia Adamski. He was married before meeting my grandmother but due to an illness she died. I am just getting started in my search and am trying anything that may be what i am looking for. If this is someone that may be who you are looking for also please e-mail me. Thank you!
