After looking at your posting again concerning Mary Hajduk it's odd that you mention her mother's name of Teresa. My GM's name was Mary Hajduk and her mother's name was Teresa. What her mother's maiden name was I am not aware. However, my Mary Hajduk didn't marry Michael Borys Troop but married a John (Jan) Rynkiewicz on 15 Nov 1909 in Nanticoke, PA. Mary was also from Austria and Immigrated to the U.S. in 1899 with her mother Teresa who was 36 at that time and a brother Thomas who was 9 years of age. MAry herself was listed as Mariana age 7. In MAry's obit it states she had two sisters, a Margaret Clarke and a Anna Waclowski and also a brother John from Plains, PA. Just seems like too many co-incidences, don't you think?

I am searching for family information on Mary Hajduk(Hayduk)who emigrated from the Austrian Empire sometime after 1900. Mary Hajduk was from Galicia/Austria/Poland and married Michael Borys in Throop, PA in about 1914. She had previously lived/worked in Northampton, MA. Mary was born in Galicia. Her father was Martin Hajduk and mother was Teressa Padowski. Martin Hajduk's mother was Catherine Serkis. Spellings may not be accurate as I spell them as I remember hearing them spoken to me years ago!
