Gacek-Borkowski family

Posted: 31 Aug 2010 1:27PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Gacek, Borkowski
Searching for my husband's ancestors: His grandparents were Antoni Gacek (5/10/1894-11/29/1975) and Honorata Borkowski (9/11/1894-1/3/1986). They were originally from near Krakow, Poland. They came separately to the U.S., met here, and married. They went to Chicago, IL > WV > OH, where they remained.

Antoni was born In Austria/Poland. We believe his parents were Michala and Magdaleny Gacek and we think he had one brother, John. We think he came to the U.S. on a merchant ship, at around the age of 18.

We believe Honorata's parents were Francieska and Agnieszki Borkowski. and she had at least one sister, Katie, and one brother, Joe. Upon arrival in the U.S. (around age 18), Honorata used the name Mary for awhile, in order to be American (sort of new life, new home, new name).

ANY information at all about these families would be greatly appreciated. We've hit a brick wall.
