My maternal grandmother was Katarzyna Iskra who married Jan Zimny in South Amboy, N.J. Their children were Aniela, Josephine, Stella, Mary and Walter. She returned to Glinik Zaborowski, Poland because of ill health and died there. Jan Zimny stayed behind in Colchester, Ct. and died in CT.

I think I have some info. My grandfather was Michal (Michael) Iskra their were 8 siblings:
4 boys : Michal, Peter and two who I do not know the names. The 4 sisters are: Marja (Mary), Eva, Frania (Frances) and Catherine (Kasha or a/k/a Katarzna)
Michael stayed In Poland and married Karolina. They had 7 children (2 boys died in infancy) Their children are: Jozef, Hania, Joanna (aka Grazyna), Stasia and Wladyslawa (Wladzia) (MY Mother).
Peter Moved to France and had 4 children: Janine, Frances, Ania and Peter Jr. I believe
Marja (Mary) has a daughter Anna April with her 1st marriage. Her daughter stayed in Poland with her 1st husband when she moved to the United States. She remarried and had two more children, I believe their names are Anthony and Felecia.
Frances moved to the US I know she lived in Clifton and she had 1 daughter, Genovefa Grembowiec.
Eva also moved to US and she had one son, Edward Sopczak
Catherine (Kasia) had 4 childrenl. Sophie, Stasia, Stanley and Jozef.
I know that Catherine's daughter Sophie married and her last name is Bialas. I'm sure I could get more Info regarding from my mother. My mother and Sophie are 1st cousins. Hope this helps.
