In my family tree is the Dudkiewicz family. The earliest is Marzel or Martzel Dudkiewicz and Josephine Dudkiewicz. They came from Poland to America in the late 1800s. They settled in Pennsylvania. Their children were Louis, Joseph, and Anthony.
These settled in Ashley, Pennsylvania.

All I know is that my ancestors were Marzel or Martzel Dudkiewicz and Josephine Dudkiewicz. He was born between 1860 and 1875. I was told he was a Prussian sharpshooter (or his father was a Prussian sharpshooter). He had children: Joseph A., Louis (who married a Josephine), and Josephine. Louis and Josephine had children: Helen, Jean, Joseph, Chester, and Louis.

It has been pretty impossible to find information about Marzel and Josephine. I can't even find names in the census. This makes me think that Marzel may have been a nickname or did not fill out the census forms or he died not long after coming to America. The only thing I've seen of Josephine, his wife, is a picture of her holding a baby. She was the spitting image of my grandfather. We said she was my grandfather in drag. The resemblance was uncanny. She looked like she was in her 70s or 80s when the picture was taken, but I have no idea when it was taken or if that was her age. You know those country women did not age well.

My family did not keep good records of their family on one side of my family

I believe some of the research that I did on the 1920 census will help on your family. (See my message posted 1-2001). Am also hoping when you see that, that your Joseph and mine might be the same. Thanks! Let me know!

Thank you so much. I just looked at listing today. For the past two weeks I have been sick with the flu, upper respiratory infection, and intestinal virus.

Wow. Thank you. We thought my great grandfather's name was Martzel and my great grandmother's name was Josephine. But I think that Marcelli and Francis/Frances must be my great grandparents. The children's names coincide, and my grandfather lived in Ashley, Pennsylvania.

Thanks again!
