Polish family in Manistee @1900

Looking for information about Joseph and Agnes Doba and their family: Katherine, Rozalia, Marianna, Tekla, Simon, Thomas, Charlotte, Leo, Julia, Emily and Boleslaw. What church would have served a Polish family that lived at 165 Tenth Street from 1900 to 1930? Is there a Polish cemetery?

Thank you.

Manistee has 3 Catholic churches; St. Mary, St.Joseph, and Guardian Angels. The Polish primarily went to St. Joseph, however there were some Polish families in the other two. The three churches recently merged their administrative offices. You can contact them at the address below

254 Sixth Street
Manistee, MI 49660
231.723.2619

The Manistee County Museum also has an index card file of names that appeared in Manistee newspapers from the the late 1800's to recently. The newspapers are on microfilm and can be viewed at the Manistee County Library.
