I have a Mary (Victoria M.) Ostrowska married to a Christian Von Kanel 08 Jul 1881 in Will County Illinios. They had 7 children.
I am looking for both of their parent's names and place of birth.
There is no information on the marriage documents regarding parents so I do not know any information or directions for families. I stumbled across the Von Kanel connection in an obituary for a gg-grandfather Frank Kowalski, who died in 1934 in LaSalle, IL.
The sisters mentioned in the obituary are completely unknown to any of the currently surviving members of the family. They are " Mrs. Annie Lobbins, of LaSalle, Mrs. Marie Von Kenel, of Wasau, Wis., and Mrs. Frances Remark, of Iowa. It is thought that their maiden names are either Kowalski or Ostrowska, with any and all of the various spellings.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Photos would be a treasure.
