Gravitz - Cvengros Connection to Hurley, Wisconsin

Gravitz - Cvengros Connection to Hurley, Wisconsin

Surnames: Gravitz - Cvengros
My father, Francis Joseph Gravitz, was the youngest son of Matthew and Mary Gravitz who resided in Hurley, Wisconsin.

My dad's sister, Lucille Marie Gravitz married Michael Cvengros in 1929, and they all are listed together in the same household in the 1930 US Census for Hurley, Wisc (although the transcribed version on Ancestry.com misspelled Gravitz as Granitz).

I am trying to trace back the Gravitz heritage, and understand Matthew and Mary immigrated from Lithuania (Poland) in the early 1900s, stopping briefly in England, where my aunt, Ann (Gravitz) Christensen (their first child) was born in London; and then they traveled to Canada and continued down to settle in Hurley, Wisconsin in 1905 where Matthew worked as a signalman for the railroad and had a small farm. Matther and Mary Gravitz' children included: Ann (Gravitz) Christensen, Lucille Marie (Gravitz) Cvengros, Matthew Gravitz, Francis Joseph Gravitz and Mildred (Gravitz) Gregory.

I haven’t found any information to substantiate Matthew and Mary Gravitz' immigration to the US; nor any information about exactly where they emigrated from, or who their forebears were.

I found the Iron County, Wisconsin board on Ancestry.com and thought I'd start this new thread to see if anyone had any information or suggestions on how to proceed.

Hello,
You might want to try the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center in Ashland, WI. It handles quite a few counties in northern Wisconsin. I have searched there for my boy friends Polish ancestors there. The address is Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center 29270 County Hwy. G Ashland, WI 54806. Their email is: whsnorthwoods@wisconsinhistory.org

I noticed that Mary died on 15 Feb 1968. Her maiden name is listed as Greziak on Lucille's death record.

Just me again,
Mildred Cecilia Gravitz was married 3 June 1928, St. Mary's Church, to John Anthony Gregory.

By the way, who is Vern Gravitz? He is listed as living with Mildred and John at one time.
