I hope you find this message since your original post was dated Feb 2000. My grandmother's maiden name was Falendys (Caroline). She was married to Walenty Surowiec and they owned land in Rusk Co. Wi (to be exact South Fork/Hawkins) Her father's name was Martin Falendys and her mother's maiden name is Kielb. I'm also sure that my grandparents' property was next door to her brother's. His name was George Falendys. My grandparents were both born in Poland in the 1890's. I'm not sure exactly when they came to the States but they first lived in Minnesota before settling in Wisconsin. Hope this helps you out!
