I am researching Maciej and Josepha Kossok Pawelek. Maciej later Matthew Pawelek was born somewhere in Prussia, don't know where. He settled in Karnes County, Texas. We don't know the boat that he and family came in on. Probably came through Galveston and probably those records where distroyed. My husband Gilbert is great grandson. Maciej was born Feb 24, 1832 in Prussia.
