I knew, from a family letter, that my great grandmother (Bessie Matys Hruszczak) had one brother (Frank) and three sisters. It was Frank’s daughter who wrote me. She (Catherine Matys Rothermal) had also said that Bessie was the youngest of the five and that she never met the other three girls. So, I did the worst thing one could do; I assumed those three never came over and simply did not focus on them. Shame on me!
Yesterday when I reviewed Bessie’s passenger list, I noticed the person listed above her (Antoni Storosz) was a 38 year old married man who was also from Fraga in
and was coming to Coatesville ( ) as well.
He was coming to see his brother in law – who happened to be Bessie’s brother! Chester
Antoni’s information also revealed that he left his wife Maria in
Now I had one of Bessie and Frank’s sisters! Austria
What a great find. Now, of course – to research if Maria ever came over. I am not 100% certain of the spelling of Antoni's last name, as this is the only record I have found him on.
