Hey guys,

I have been a follower of this board for years and am administrator. My aunt Karen Vogel has posted here numerous times but this is the first time I have posted. Since she had posted pretty much all I knew I let things be but now I have uncovered new information:

My great-great grandfather's name was Wladislaw/Walter Kumor. I am descended from his daughter Elizabeth who tragically died in 1931. I have located him and his family in the 1920 and 1930 census. He had a brother named Stanislaw/Stanley living with him and his family in 1920. Stanley Kumor was a barber and he married a Nellie and had at least two sons: Edward and Alphonse (per 1930 census).

In both censuses it lists him as coming to this country in 1913 so I did a search of ellisisland.org and sure enough I located him. He came to Ellis Island 27 Aug 1913 aboard the SS Imperator. He was born in Wysoka, modern day Poland. His closest living relative in Poland was a brother named Maciej Kumor residing in Wysoka. It states his intent on arriving as to join his brother Walenty (Walter) in Helmetta, NJ. This adds up since when Walter's wife arrived to America she was going to join a sister Marya Rys in Helmetta.

Do these names sound familiar to anyone?

I'm new to all this, but have some answers to your question.Stanley(Stanislaw)is my Grandfather. Yes, he was a Barber and Nellie (Aniela Tobola) Kumor my Grandmother. They lived in Detroit, Wayne Co., Michigan. Had 3 children: Edward,1st Born (my Dad);Alphonse, 2nd born; 3rd born,a girl, 10 years after Edward's birth. My Dad, Edward died in 1983. My Mom is alive; so is my husband and 2 of my 3 children. My sibling is live, male, married,has 3 sons. My Grandfather died tradgically when my Dad was 13 years old. I need more INFO on my Grandmother Nellie (Aniela Tobola) Kumor. Hope this helps you in your ancestry search.

Hello there

We are most definitely related then! I would love to share family stories with you. So much in unknown about my Kumor side because my great grandma (Walter's daughter) died when my grandmother was only a baby and she never really got to know her grandfather. According to family stories, he drank some bad hooch during Prohibition and was incapacitated for the rest of his life. You can contact me at wabnoles@yahoo.com.

Howdy,just wanted to check in to let you know that I will be contacting you in the very near future. Really not up on much of family as I would like to be. So, not sure that I will be able to fill in the blanks for you concerning the Kumors since you've been researching much longer than I.

Hello again

No hurry here I have already gone close to ten years without having any contact with the Kumors it will not hurt to wait a little longer. Do not worry if you can provide info or not just photos would go a long way for me because I have only pictures of my great grandmother Elizabeth and her mother Veronica but no one else from the Kumors. Having an additional contact and an additional pair of eyes and ears helps too. Have you seen my online tree?

Would normally not use this method for communication but I do not have a paid membership. Are you still interested in the family tree?
