I've seen alot of other states mention in the post messages...but none from Dayton, Ohio. My Grandfather is Henry Bochenek and his father was Alexander Bochenek and mother was Maryanna. They both were emigrants from Poland also. When finally making to the US they chose Dayton, Ohio to plant their seeds.
And from the nine children they had together the family has grown immensely. Curious to see if any connection to the other states spoken of?
