Classification: Query
Surnames: Gillis
There are two Rose Gillis names in Luzerne county,one who is married to Martin Gillis the other who is married to John Gillis, both families husband and wife are born in Lithuania, but only Rose and John lived in Duryea, the other Martin and Rose they lived in Miners Mills,Luzerne County, So in the 1920 census theres John Gillis age 59 born abt 1861 listed as head of house and occupation as hotel keeper, his wife listed as Rose age 50 born abt 1870,both John and Rose are born in Lithuania, there kids are Helen age 28 born in Pennsylvania, Elizabeth age 19 born in Pennsylvania, Alyoysious a son age 17 born in Pennsylvania and Joseph age 13 also born in Pennsylvania. Census states that the family resides at 202 Pettebon or Pettelon St in Duryea, Luzerne County,Pa. It also shows John immigrated in the year 1882 while Rose immigrated in the year 1886. Now going back ten years to the 1910 census. theres John head of house age 47, wife Rosy age 45, both listed as being born in Lithuania, with kids John age 21 coalminer born in Pennsylvania, Ellen age 18 born in Pennsylvania, Mary age 16 works in mill born in Pennsylvania,Julia age 14 born in Pennsylvania, Elizabeth age 11 born in Pennsylvania, Aloysious age 9 born in Pennsylvania, Aguara age 6 born in Pennsylvania, and Joseph age 3 born in Pennsylvania. In the 1910 census it shows Rosy having a total of 14 kids of which only 7 are still living at the time of the 1910 census, immigration year listed for John is 1883 and for Rosy its listed as 1887,these immigration years differ slightly then the ones given in the 1920 census. The family resides at # 56 Chilliden Street West in Duryea ward 1 in Luzerne County,Pa, that girl that begins with Ag not sure if its Agefa or Aguara odd name cant read it she appears in both census's but I omitted it from 1920 as was too hard to read The Rose that's married to Martin that lives in another part of Luzerne County this rose was born abt 1878,whereas the Rose living in Duryea and married to John was born between 1865-1870 depending on which census is right if any. I did find the youngest kind of the 1910 census Joseph Gillis in find a grave website it lists him as being born January 1, 1907 and dies march 29,1988,so hope this gets you started and its the right Rose. Also thru a search thru Ancestry no name listed at all anywhere for Bartenkiuki, there was Bartonkowski and Bartenki that was closet to that spelling. so either part of their name was dropped when they came to the USA or your botching spelling one or the other-lol
