Marya, and Anna Jurczyk are the names I know..
Marya (my great grandmother) & her younger sister Anna came to America in 1906 from Zaton at ages 16 & 9. They are on the Ellis Island passenger records. They departed from Hamburg. When they arrived in America they resided in the state of Massachusetts.
Until my great grandmother met my great grandfather Stanley Moski (1892 - 1969). Also Polish. He joined the army here and the story is "they" couldn't pronounce his last name so he changed it to Moski. Nobody knows what the original last name was. Or if it was even close to Moski...unfortunately.
There is another story that my great grandmother had a family in Poland that she left..came to America remarried & started another family. I'm not sure if this is true,...as my great grandmother was only 16 when she arrived in America..Its doubtful she had children and a husband at that age?
