Stanislaw Pazderski

My next prayer card is Stanislaw Pazderski.  He was born in Poland around November of 1876.  His parents may have been Wladyslaw Pazderski and Helene Okonska.  I could only find unsoured family trees mentioning those names.

Stanislaw came to the United States in 1900 and became a railroad laborer in Buffalo.  He boarder with the Majchrzak family at 54 Sobeski Street.  In 1905 he was living with the Szymanek family.

1910 shows changes for Stanislaw.  He married to Stella and works as a helper in a coal yard.  Walter 3 and Amelia 1 are his children.  The family is now living on in their own home on Beck Street.  Five years later they add Helen 4 and Anthony 2 to the family. Stanislaw becomes a fireman for the railroad.

By 1920 the family was expanded again; Walter 14, Amelia 11, Helen 8, Anthony 6, Theresa 4, and newborn Edward.  Stanislaw had his naturalization paperwork handed in.

Ten years later the family is living on Pine Ridge Road in Cheektowaga, New York.  Stanislaw is now a Yardman for a coal company.  The family has expanded again; Walter  23, Emilia 21, Helen 19, Anthony 16, Teresa 15, Edward 11, Sofia  6, and Richard 2.  Several months later Stanislas died leaving his wife to raise the family.

Joseph Stanton was born June 9, 1926 in Jessup, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania to Warren 63 and Elizabeth Stanton 46.  In 1940 he was living with his family in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.  His siblings included Vincent 27 Elenore 24, Margarette 22, Dorothy 20, John 16, Joseph 13, and Elsiemerie 4.

In 1944, one month after turning 18 Joseph Stanton was drafted.  He was described as
Weight: 169, Complexion: Dark, blue eyes, black hair and 8’1″ tall.

Dolores G. Kwasney married Joseph on May 29, 1948.

They lived in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania in 1950.  Sometime later, but I can’t find when he or they moved to 201 Moore Avenue in Buffalo, New York.

“Joseph Stanton Joseph Stanton, of Kenmore. N.Y., died Sunday. May 1. 1988, In Kenmore. He was a son of the late Warren and Elizabeth Glen Stanton. He was preceded In death by sisters and brothers. Valedia Murray, Eleanor Heenan. Elester and Vincent. Surviving are his wife, the former Anna Pepperday; stepdaughter. Donna and Carol: step-granddaughter, Meghan: brother. Jack Stanton: sisters.

It appears he remarried.  I can’t find any connection to my family.

A cool find

DeTample Residence

I’m doing some research on my wife’s paternal side and I found an interesting piece of information from 1942.  Well, interesting to me and how it relates to the current family. The addresses in question are:

  • 35 Zittle
  • 74 Sage
  • 29 Parkview
  • 16 Silverdale – not listed above.

My wife is a DeTample.  Her grandfather Arthur had several siblings.  Elvern and Harold were two of those siblings.  In 1942 they lived at 29 Parkview.  Jacob and Mary DeTample are her great great grandparents.  Mary and her daughter Anna lived at 35 Zittle.  These two addresses are shown below on the map.  Anthony was another child of Mary and Jacob, he lived on Sage Street.  Sage is about 0.8 miles or a 17 minute walk from Zittle.

If you look again at the map you will see a blue dot and the word home.  That is where we live now.  Without trying we ended up living just a couple hundred feet away from her ancestors.  The Howard on Eller so far is not confirmed as a relative.  But oddly enough my great aunt and 1C1R cousins lived on the same block of Eller.

Julianna Marcinkowska

img20190324_20193998

 

My research for Julia Marcinkowska starts in 1892 but I cannot find a maiden name.  She was living in Buffalo, New York and was born in Poland.

Eight years later (1900) she is still found in Buffalo living at 18 Brighton Avenue with her family.  Her husband was Jan Marcinkowski (b. 1858).  Seven of her nine children were still living.  They were: Frank 12, Veronica 9, Helena 7, Waleria 6, Bronislana 4, Leon 2, and Mary 1/12.  Five years later (1905) Bronislaw 2 was added to the family.

1910 has the family of ten living on Titus Avenue.  By 1915 Children Frank, Waleria, and Bronislana are no longer living with the family.

 

We learn in 1920 that Julia does not speak English.  The family is still on Titus Avenue but the makeup of the family has changed.  Sons Frank, Leo, and Bernard are still home.  Daughter Helen is married to George Gora with son Henry 3 living with her family.  By 1925 Leo, Mary, and Bernard are now living with their widowed mom.

By 1930 Julia has learned to speak English.  She is still with her three children in the home.  It may have felt empty in these last years to have only four in the home after years of close to ten people underfoot.

Two years later those three children would be alone in the home.

After researching I found no connection to the family or why they had the prayer card.
