Skinkis (Russia-Lithuanian, Michigan, Ohio or even CA)

Skinkis (Russia-Lithuanian, Michigan, Ohio or even CA)

Posted: 22 Jun 2004 7:10AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Skinkis, Akson, Gallagher, King
My husbands ancestry includes Skinkis.

Here's a synopsis of what I've been able to piece together.

(husband's great grandfather)
Joseph Skinkis b. Jan 1853 Russia, first married Mary Ann/Anna Akson b. Russia (marriage date unknown), later married Anna/Annie (maiden unknown) b. May 1869 (marriage date uknown).

Joseph and first wife Mary Ann had so far five known children:
Rose Agnes (commonly used Agnes) b. MI Jan 17 1886 (my husbands grandmother)
Mary b. OH Mar 1888
Amelia (aka Minnie) b. OH Feb 26 1889
Nellie b ?
Margaret b. ?

Joseph and second wife Annie had five sons that I know of:
Joseph b. OH Sep 1893
Peter b. OH Nov 1896
John b. OH May 1899
William (Willie) b. OH abt. 1900
Frank b. OH abt. 1903

Second wife Annie died Sep 1 1940. To piece all these children into the same family here is Annie's obit:
Skinkis: Anna, beloved wife of the late Joseph, mother of Joseph, Peter, John, William and Frank, stepmother of Mary, Nellie, Margaret, Agnes and Minnie, grandmother of Loretta and Edward Skinkis, passed away at 1:30 a. m. Aug. 31. Friends may call at Delia Jakubs' Lithuanian Funeral Home, 6621 Edna ave. Funeral services Monday, Sept. 2, at 8 a. m., St. George's Church. Burial Calvary Cemetery.

Annie's stepdaughter "Mary" listed in the obit is living with the family in the 1900 census. Where are Joseph's other children from his first marriage living??

Daughter Rose Agnes Skinkis first married John William Gallagher (b. abt 1881 Ireland) on May 31 1904 St. George's Church, Cleveland, OH. I believe John Gallagher passed away and she later married a man with the surname King. Rose Agnes Skinkis Gallagher King died in CA May 29 1969.

If I'm following the correct family, I have further census, death, obit, marriage etc. records for many of the children.

Looking to correspond with any Skinkis relations that might have connections to Russia-Lithuanian, Michigan or Ohio or even CA.

Thank you,
Luana

Surnames: Skinkis,Olsalvsky, Krause, Schieferstein
This list doesn't seem to be all that active...but here goes.

Expanding on the Skinkis line....

Elizbeth Olsavsky b. abt. 1909 New Jersey m. Frank Skinkis b. abt. 1903 OH. They m. abt. 1927 OH. Elizabeth d. 1981 OH. Her spouse Frank d. 1974 OH.

Elizbeth Olsavsky's parents are Joseph & Mary Olsavsky from Slovakia. Frank Skinkis parents are Joseph & Annie (Anna) Skinkis from Russia.

I believe that Frank Skinkis previously m. to Marie/Maria/Mary Krause abt. 1923 which produced a child Loretta b. abt 1924 (I believe mother Marie died in 1924 from this childbirth). Loretta, 6 yrs old, is on the 1930 census with Frank and Elizabeth ..but other factors in this census, etc., clearly indicate she is not Elizabeth Olsalvsky's natural born child, but rather Marie Krause Skinkis' child.

Child Loretta Skinkis later married John Schieferstein in Cuyahoga OH..

If any of these names rings a bell for anyone in their family tree, I would appreciate correspondence.

Sometimes genealogy research produces unexpected results. Hopefully there are those open to my hypotheses.

Thanks,
Luana

Hattie Skinkis Jarmolowicz - 1914-2014

Posted: 22 Aug 2014 2:07PM GMT
Classification: Obituary
Surnames: Olszewski
Hattie Jarmolowicz, 99, Sobieski, died peacefully Sunday morning, August 17, 2014, at Woodhaven Manor in Pulaski, Wisconsin.

The daughter of Joseph and Pearl (Olszewski) Skinkis was born November 26, 1914 in Brown County, WI.
She married Roman Jarmolowicz in 1936 and he preceded her in death in 2003.

Probably one of the last pioneer women, Hattie had a zest for life and hoped to see her 100th birthday in November.
She did Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors sewing from left-over material and hand-me-downs. She made her own patterns from newspaper pages.

Hattie kept a large garden, preserving as much as she could for her family. It was amazing how many different kinds of jams and jellies and cucumbers she could preserve.

She was also known for her doughnut making.
Hattie shared with everyone. She spent much time crocheting doilies, slippers, afghans, caps, and scarves, and never followed book instructions.
She did crocheting and her coloring books up until a week ago. Hattie loved company and always sent everyone home with something.

Survivors include her eight children: Rose Rovinski (husband Don Gierczak), Green Bay, Wisconsin, Barbara (Tony) Zimanek, Iowa, Germaine (George) Ballard, Crivitz, Dottie (Mike) Sternard, Luxemburg, Pat (Ray) Wazny, Sobieski, Tom (JoAnn) Jarmolowicz, Seymour, LaVerne (Dan) Labs, Green Bay, and Sandy (Jeff) Collins, Montello; 24 grandchildren; 33 great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; one brother: Stanley (Rose Marie) Skinkis, Seymour; two sisters: Helen Kobelewski, Milwaukee, Genevieve Spaude, Menominee, Michigan; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband, two sons; Joseph and Michael; one son-in-law: Ted Rovinski; one brother and sister-in-law: John (Eleanor) Skinkis; two sisters and brothers-in-law: Isabelle (Jospeh) Hylok, and Florence (John) Holewinski; two brothers-in-law: Frank Kobelewski, and Fred Spaude.

The Funeral Mass was celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Thursday, August 21st, 2014 at Assumption B.V.M. Church in Pulaski, with burial in the parish cemetery.
