The 1914-1915 Atkinson Erie Directory (Erie, PA) is the first time I was able to locate Thomas Adamowicz. His wife is listed as Mary, his occupation is a laborer, and was living at 343 East Front Street. In the 1919-1920 directory, his residence is listed as 349 Front Street and this was the last year I found him in the directories. In 1922-23, Joseph Carbon and Phillip Masiroff are living in the home. I looked up to 1929-1930 and was not able to locate Thomas Adamowicz. Possibly Thomas moved out of the city or changed his name.

P.S. I am not related to the Adamowicz's

Surnames: Adamowicz
I am not sure who Thomas Adamowicz is but my grandfathers name was George Adamowicz who passed in 2007. He still has a living sister Pauline. My dad and I are thinking that Thomas may have been George's uncle because Thomas came here around the time that Georges parents came over as well. I am trying to find out more information.

Hi Nichole, My Thomas Adamowicz was born March 25, 1882 in what is now Lithuania (then Russia/Poland). He came through the port of Philadelphia and landed on May 3, 1910. When did your George's parents come to the US? What are George's parents' names? Where were they from?

Do you have any information on George's parents' siblings - when Thomas may have died (if related)?

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sue

Surnames: Adamowicz
Sue, My grandfathers parents were named Frank and Catherine, however Catherines name when she came to the US was Kate Filipowska, they were married on 4/30/1907 in Erie. Kates fathers name was also Frank. None of my grandpas brothers were named Thomas. My aunt has all 11 names written down, I am going to get that list from her this week. From what she rememebers, she never heard of a Thomas Adamowicz. We are going to ask my grandpas sister the next time we see her. So far every Adamowicz I have come into contact with in Erie is related to me so we aren't really sure if Thomas was a relative.

Sue, I also believe that the letter you sent, one copy acutally arrived at my house, for some reason my mothers name comes up at my address at times, that is how I ended up on this website.
