There are only two Val Gasior's in Hamtramck and they are father and son. Valentine Gasior, Sr. was married to Pauline Wierzchowska, daughter of John and Mary. Valentine died in 1922 and is buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Detroit. They lived at 3242 Evaline, Hamtramck, MI. Their children were:
Valentine (Val) born about 1910
Stanley (died in 1920 age 1)
Anna (perhaps your grandmother? Born about 1920)
Rose (died in 1912 age 7 mos)
Victoria (died in 1910, age 2 yrs)
Pauline died in 1969. She was best friends with my great grandmother who was also named Pauline). I have a photograph of them at my great grandmother's wedding from 1904 at St. Albertus Church in Poletown.
You may have some info turned around. Valentine, Sr. did have siblings, though. I recall seeing two brothers. I have not been able to locate any marriage license for Valentine and Pauline.
Contact me if interested.
I did some more digging. Your grandmother, Maryann is living with her mother, also named Maryann and her brother, Jacob. I believe Valentine, Sr. is their brother. He is residing a few blocks away while your grandmother is living on Canfield. This was in 1920 and Maryann's mother is a widow.
Your grandparents married May 9, 1911 in Detroit by Fr. Tolka. Witnesses were Jacob Gasior and Stanislau Kozalka. Your great grandfather's name was not Joseph but John.
Katie married Frank J. Michalski on September 26, 1905 in Detroit.
You may want to go to familysearch.org and connect with their US documents. Michigan marriages are there.
Jacob Gasior married Leokadia Kuna on Sept. 26, 1911.
I am the granddaughter of Martha Wierzchowska Andronick (Kulick)from Detroit. She was born around 1900. I am looking for anyone who may be a relation in the Wierzchowska family.
