I am researching the members of the Kubiak family who immigrated to the Everson, PA area in the 1880s and 1890s and moved to South Bend, Indiana in the 1890s and 1900s. The people I am researching include:
Valentine Kubiak and his wife Katarzyna Figorski Kubiak Jaworski (1846-1916) - their children were Josephine (1876-1941), Michael (1867-1941), John (born 1884), and Vincent (1882-1952) (and possibly Agnes).
Michael (born 1839) and Josephine Kubiak - Josephine's maiden name might be Burzynski, but I am not sure. Children include Jacob and John, but there could be others.
Wojceich Kubiak (born 1849) and his wife Maryanna Wicherski Kubiak.
Joseph Pinkowski and Frances Kubiak Pinkowski
Martin Kubiak (born 1847) and Antonia Kominowski Kubiak
Stanley Kubiak (born 1865) and his wife Frances Witzinski
I think these Kubiak's were all brothers and sisters, but I can't be sure from the research I've done. My research seems to point to all of them settling in the Everson area initially and most eventually moving to South Bend. I've located many of the them in the census in South Bend and Pennsylvania, but so far none of their pre-1920 obituaries mention each other. But it seems reasonable that if they all have the same last name, they were all born within 15 years of each other, most settled in Everson originally, and most ended up in South Bend, that they would have to be related.
If anyone has come across the Kubiak family in their research, could you please contact me so we can compare notes?
