Thank you for your help!!! I will research your questions this week or as soon as I can. Just returned from a Gnat/Domagala/Kruk reunion & updating, researching info from that.
I will check on John Thomas & Cecelia ASAP. They likely are buried at St. John the Baptist Summit Ridge or Nativity of the BVM St. Mary's Ridge, but no guarantees.
Your help with this Thomas name is a tremendous breakthrough -- especially with a given name "John." Too much chaff to sift through in my searches. They are some of the earliest arrivals to Monroe County/USA on my tree -- thus far. Just dipped the toe in the pond on this whole crazy hunt.
Thanks again & I will get back to you soonest with answers to your questions.
Domagala we believe to be Polish; Suchoreczek, Szubin, Poznan, Poland; also Slupy, Dziewierzewo, two other towns in the Szubin district of Poznan. (Polish pronunciation of surname "DOME a gow ee.") These towns are sites of marriages or baptisms, so not necessarily birthplaces, but likely in vicinity.
Also thank you for Catharina, I don't believe I had information of her previous to your post.
Appreciate your research & time!
