Jan Faltyn

The latest in my Prayer Card research is Jan Faltyn.  I have found several near the city but based on his wife’s name Johanna I have narrowed it down to a family that lived on Sears Street.  This also makes sense since Sears Street has the Corpus Christi Hall/bar/Bowling alley that is part of the church complex that my family was a part of.

In 1905 the new New York State Census the family lived at 138 Sears Street.  Jan and Johanna had six children: John 15, Louis 13, Francis 10, Clara 4, Ambrose 1, and Vicky 5 months.

According to the 1915 New York State Census the family included one son and two daughters; Ambrose 11, Vicky 10, and Helen 8.  They still lived at 138 Sears.

In 1919 Jan is shown living at 147 Sears St.  He is now a janitor.  The city directory does not list the rest of the family.

When 1920 rolls around the family is living at 129 Sears St.  The widower John is now living with his daughter Francis Miles and her husband Frances Miles.  Also in the home is his grandson Henry Miles, children Vicky, Ambrose, and Helen.  The homes in this area were usually three bedroom single homes or two bedroom doubles.  I assume this was a double since the censu shows another family of eight living at the same address.

1925 show Jan and daughter Helen living at 254 Person street.  Five years later daughters Helen and Clara are living with their father at 254 Person St..

Three years later Jan was buried at St. Stanislaus Cemetery, section Nowa II.

Franciszka Glinska

Another installment of the prayer card posts.  This one had been difficult, there is very little I can find on Frances Glinska.  The street she lived just before her death no longer exists in Buffalo.  She died in 1926 but in 1929 many streets were moved or renamed after the opening of the New York Central Terminal.

I did find that she was married to Wincenty Glinski.  No marriage date or place.  A death date for him was not found but it does seem that he died prior to 1917.  In 1917 Frances was living alone at 124 Sobieski Street in Buffalo’s East Side.  Her occupation is listed as saleswomen.

1918 I find her in the city directories as a clerk.  There is no list of where she worked.  She was still living at 124 Sobieski.

In 1920 she is a dressmaker still at 124 Sobieski.  After this I lose track of her until her death and burial at St. Stanislaus Cemetery.
