A Gawel Up For Grabs...

Posted: 10 Sep 2001 2:50PM GMT
Classification: Census
Surnames: Gawel, Gavel
In going through some notes I found a John and Catherine Gawel, son Stanislaw (age 5-20), son Frank (age 5 and under) and daughter Helena (age 5 and under) listed in the 1895 New Jersey census for the town of Sayreville. My Gawels came to town around 1900 and these were gone by then I believe. I looked for a Frank Gavel born 1889-1890 in the SSDI and found one in Cleveland, Ohio. In my research I have found that kinfolk tended to go to places where other relatives lived. First generation immigrant Gawels abound in NJ, PA, Chicago, Buffalo, all over CT, MD, DE, and NH. My father's Godfather, Louis Szafarz, also moved to Cleveland. I know that searching by Gavel vice Gawel can produce interesting results, but it might be worth it if you have a first name. Anyway this one doesn't seem to have come from Widelka (near Reszcow) but a lot of Sayreville Poles came from Lipnica Murowano which is near Gawlow (Gawel's Town) both of which are near Krakow (King Krak's Town).
