My Ochab Relations are as follows:

Apolonia Ochap (Ochab) born in Chechley 1893-1895 (depending on the record)
Her parents were Jan Ochap and Regenia Matyszek of Chechley.
Apolonia married Frank Zapal, also of Chechley. His parents were Jan Zapal and Maryanna Zaucka also of Chechley.

Apolonia had a brother Vincent.

Apolonia and Vincent immigrated to Chicago in 1906 and 1905.
Vincent had the following children.
Frank, Stella Julia

A Joseph Matyszek was my fathers Godfather.

Surnames: Ochab, Pluta, Matysek, Matyszkiewicz, Roch
Tom, we have talked in the past. I am still looking for records from Chechly/Ropczyce to explain marriages and births after 1848. My g-grandfather Peter Pawel Pluta had a least one sister who married an Ochab. (Regina Pluta + Josef Ochab, I think).
Another sister, Marianna Pluta, married Andrew Matyzskiewicz. Is that a variation of Matysek?
Anyway, we had lots of relatives go to Chicago. I have more to say about the Ochab name. But I just found a passenger record that may interest you and others, so I am posting it.

Ship Chemnitz, from Bremen arriving Baltimore 31 March 1911: Franciszek Matysek, 17, (father Michal Matysek, Chechly), $20, going to Chicago to brother-in-law Jan Oshab (Ochab?); with him, Josef Roch, 17, (mother Anna Roch, Chechly), $13, going to brother Jan Roch, Chicago.

Chris

I contacted you last year about the Ochabs & Matyszeks.
I found A Michael Matysek from Chechley immigrating to Chicago in 1904 ( I have to go back and check the date). Next week I will try census records to find out more.
Have you found anything else on your Chicago relations?

Interesting...Ochap is so close to what I am researching.My great grandpa Jan Kmiotek was born in Chechly in 1888.Recently, I found his older brother's wedding certificate here in a NYC church which gave me his parents name:Jan Kmiotek and Zofia Ochab.Notice, it's with a B, not a P.Was there any Zofia in your family tree?

Yes, Ochap, was also spelled Ochab. I never looked into a Zofia. It seems the Chechley Ochabs or Ochaps in the Chicago area all married spouses from Chechley. I think a lot of them are connected, because they show up as godparents on my dads side (brothers and sisters), and the are living either in the sames building or next door on the 1920 census. Do you have any info on Zofia?
