Trying to find my gr-gr-gr-gr grandfather and family with last name WITKOWSKI.
They seem to be the first Witkowski family in Toronto around 1860s onward. Louis Witkowski was born Poland abt 1831 and starting in 1870 was listed in Toronto city directories as a Tailor. I have census information on them from 1871 and 1881 - here are the family members (birth years are approximate):
- Louis b 1831 (d 1879/1880)
- Annie / Amelia b 1840 in Ireland
- Joseph b 1861
- Mary Ann b 1863
- Leopold b 1864
- Louisa b 1866
- Louis b 1868
- Kosmies / Cashmire b 1871
- Antonie b 1874
- John b 1879
Any information all would be appreciated. The last entry I have for them is from 1898 Toronto directory that lists Annie as Louis' widow.
John Witkowski married Kathleen Cummings, born in Ireland abt 1874, died in Toronto 11 Oct 1915 at 109 Logan Ave. Parents were Laurence Cummings and Mary Robinson.
Any connection to the family you are researching?
