Jacob Ginter of Greylow, Poznan

Thu, 17 Jan 2008 07:30:49 -0000From: .Author: NCosgrove8629 Board Post:

Hi Ceil,

I have a couple of names for you. My ggreat grandfather was Jacob Ginter. They were from the Poznan area. He came here with family in 1884/ or 1886. If you are interested I will look up specific fates for you. I got this information form the ship they came to the U.S. on.

He got hung in a mining accident in May 5th , 1888. He was married to Katherine Wroblewski. They got married in Poland. He was on the ship with his family and brother in law (Vincent Wroblewski) and his family. They all say they were from Greylow, Poznan. Poland.
Vincent's wife was Marie. I know when Jacob died but I can't find out where he is buried.

I don't know if my husband and I will ever get a chance to come back to MI. for a vacation, but there is so much I'd like to find out about.

There was a article of Jacob's death in the Red Jacket / Calumet News when he died. A lady from Calumet sent me the info. He had a Polish band take him to the cemetery (I think she said). The article had the names of all the relatives that came from Detroit to the funeral. But she didn't send me all the that info, and she said it was in an article.

Well let me know if you'd like more info and if I have it I will sent it to you.

Thank you,
Nancy Cosgrove(Surnames ginter,wroblewski,wolfe,wilczenski,beehler,browski,kaczor)

John Zwierzchowski, pastor of Holy Innocents' Polish Roman Catholic church, was born in Calumet, Mich., on May 9, 1877, and is a son of John and Josephine (Maciejewska) Zwierzchowski, natives of Piotrkowo and Sroda,Poland, respectively. The parents immigrated to the United States in 1870 and settled in Calumet, Mich, where they still reside and where the father is employed with the Calumet & Hecla Mine company.

Tobianski ; Wladislaus, John, Casimir, Stanislaus, Pelagia, wife of Frank Banaszewski, Frances and Teckla.

"History of ...Calumet, Red Jacket..." c. 1883

Excerpted from "History of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan containing a full account of its early settlement; its growth, development and resources; and extended description of its Iron and Copper Mines." (Chicago: Western Historical Company, 1883)
Transcribed by Joseph F. Martin

Rev. Fabian Pawlar, resident priest of the Church of the Sacred Heart. Father Pawlar was born in Silesia, Prussia; was educated in Germany; studied theology and was ordained a priest of the Roman Catholic Church in Italy in 1874. He came to America in 1875, and directly to Lake Superior, and from January 1875 till July 1878, was in charge of the Church of the Sacred Heart in Calumet. He was then assigned to the church at Houghton, of which he was the resident priest from July 1878 till May 1880. In June 1881 he returned to Calumet to his former charge. He has been lately assigned to the Polish church at Red Jacket. (p. 305)

Red Jacket
The Polish Church society was organized the present year, 1882, with Rev. Fabian Pawlar as the organizing pastor. The Church Executive Committee are M. Mytkowski, Andrew Bartkowiak, Simon Tobianski, A. Osinski and Vincent Saltka, who have in charge the construction of a frame church building 40 X 75 feet in area, which will seat sixty people and cost $2,900. (pp. 306-307)
The Roman Catholic Polanders resident here have a benevolent society called St. Stanislaus Kostka which was organized in 1874 with a membership of twenty-five. Its first officers were John Zwierzchowski, President, Anton Osinski, Vice President, Martin Flens, Secretary, Mathias Mydkowski, Treasurer; V. Nowicki, A. Nowakowski, M. Ernad, Stephen Swiderski, Frank Swiderski, A. Gorski, Anton Adamski and Frank Zienta, with the six last named to an Executive Committee. The present membership is seventy-five. (p. 307)
