I recently found out my Grandfather John Hilinski,Hilinsky or Chilinsky may have been born in Rajgrod, Lomza Russia/Poland around 1872-1878. He married Frances Hilinsky or Franciska Chilinska in about 1900. She lived in Rajgrod and was born about 1873 to 1879.
One of their children,Frank Hilinsky (or Chilinsky) was born in Orzechowka in Lomza Russia on August 14,1897. He later lived at 124 Prospect in Bayonne New Jersey.
Joseph/Ignatz/Marin/Matin (my Grandfather) born in New Jersey 1908
Cashmira/Catherine/Carrie born about 1910
Walter/Wade/Wadi born NJ 1907
Helen about 1905 NJ
John born NJ 1907
Franciska Chilinska lived in Rajgrod at one time and sailed from Hamburg to New York on September 27 1903 on SS Moltke and later went to Bayonne NJ to meet John/Jan Chilinsky.
At one point they seemed to have lived at 124 Prospect Avenue in Bayonne Ward 5,Hudson county New Jersey.
Other possible names and connections:There may have been many name changes and other relatives

Does anyone recognize a Hilinsky,Chilinsky or Chilinski family that may have come from the Rajgrod and Orzechowka in the Lomza Russia/Poland area and later moved to Bayonne New Jersey?
I am looking to find out about that side of my family and trace them back further and I would appreciate any help.
