Grzebien family from Poland

Posted: 4 Jul 2005 4:47AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Grzebien, Ryba, Sosnowski
I am looking for any information regarding the following people and would appreciate any help you could give me:

John Walter Ryba, (born 1879, possibly in Lubcza, Pilzno, Poland, died in 1957, Chicago), married to Mary Katherine Grzebien (born 1884? in Galicia? Poland, died in 1971, California). John's father's name may have been Valintine.

US Census records show John as sometimes coming from "Poland" and other times as from “Austrian Poland”, and Mary is listed as from “Galicia Austria”, “Galicia Poland”, and just “Poland”. John and Mary had about 9 children (based on family history), 5 who reached adulthood - Walter, Cecilia (Sr. Mary Anilla), Helen or Ellen (Sr. Ellen/Gerardia), John Walter, and Mary.

Mary Katherine Grzebien's parents were John Grzebien (possibly in the military and according to family history died in a railroad accident in Poland), married to Marianna Sosnowski. John may have come from Wies Pisarowcsze Gnieworz, Mala Polska (apologies if I have mangled the Polish language or geography). Neither John or Marianna immigrated to the US and may have had a son named Stanislaw.

Thanks, Nancy
