While browsing through an antique barn in Plymouth PA, I came upon an envelope containing
the original Declaration of Intent of
Mary Was, Voss B Feb. 16,1885 in Biesna, Poland. Wife of Jacob Was, Voss Deceased. She
had 7 children at the time of the application,all residing in Nanticoke, PA.
Joseph, 3-17-1903
John, 10-14-1906
Bertha, 8-17-1908
Marty, 2-22-1913
Frank, 8-3-1914
Anthony, 3-09-1920
Frances, 2-24-1916
Mary arrived from Rotterdam, Holland at New York on August 16, 1904 on the SS Statendan.
Her photo is attached to the application. The address listed is 128 Honey Pot St., Nanticoke,
PA.
The maiden name of Mary was Mary Smalek.
the person to whom she was coming in the US was Jacob Voss.

Also included in the envelpe wa the Declaration of Intention for Jacob Was (Voss)34 yrs of
age, born in Piesna Austria on July 8, 1874. He emigrated to the US from Bremen Germany on
the "Kaiser Wilhem II" arriving at the Port of NY on October 13, 1892. His last former residence
was Bresna Austria. There are two photos of Jacob included in the papers.

If there are any relatives of these people, please contact me and I will be very happy to send
you these documents.
The dealers were getting ready to destroy the documents and I felt that some of the
decendents would apprecate having them.
