My g.g.grandmother was Katarzyna Wisnieski, (on my father's side), born in Bukowiec, 9-27-1811. She died in Chicago, 11-14-1901. She first married a man named Grochocki. When she was widowed, she married my great grandfather, Stanislaus Ratkowski.
On my mother's side, my grandparents, Peter and Lucy Tomczak came to Manistee, MI in 1882.
They lived at 610 Ramsdale St. until he died in 1903 and she moved with their children to Chicago. If you find any connection, lease let me know. Thanks, Euphemia (Ratkowski) Rybicki
