Skrok Immigrants from Pielaszów to Buffalo, New York

My grandparents were Jan Skrok and Agnieszka Kapuścińska. Jan‘s sister was Stanisława Skrok before her marriage to Adam Kiec. These Skrok siblings immigrated to Buffalo, New York, in 1913.

In researching my family history, I found other Skrok families in Buffalo, but did not know if they were related to my family.

Skrok entries in 1929 Buffalo, New York city directory

The 1929 Buffalo, New York city directory listed four Skrok couples, including my grandparents John and Agnes at 55 Townsend Street:

  • Anthony (Josephine)
  • John (Agnes)
  • Thos (Kate)
  • Walter (Mary)

Who were Anthony, Thomas, and Walter Skrok and where were they from?

I found the answer as I was researching Stanisława‘s husband (and after her death, Agnieszka‘s husband) Adam Kiec, who was born in 1892 in Dobrocice and baptized at Malice Kościelne in the Radom province of Russian occupied Poland.

Jan and Stanisława Skrok were born in Kaliszany to Wincenty Skrok and Marianna Kaszpryk in the Radom Province of Russian occupied Poland in 1892 and 1894 and baptized in Wojciechowice near Opatów and Sandomierz in what is now the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship of Poland.

Malice Kościelne is about ten kilometers from Wojciechowice.

Jan and Stanisława Skrok were born in Kaliszany and baptized in Wojciechowice; Adam Kiec and his brothers were born in Dobrocice and baptized in Malice Kościelne

While looking through the records for the Kiec family, I discovered that Tomasz Skrok, Władysław Skrok, and Antoni Skrok were born in the nearby village of Pielaszów and also baptized at Malice Kościelne.

Tomasz, Władysław, and Antoni Skrok were born in Pielaszów and baptized in Malice Kościelne

Some older maps and documents list the village name as Pilaszów. Polish Wikipedia states that “The first mention of Pielaszów comes from the 13th century. The village belonged to the holdings of the Cistercian monastery in Koprzywnica.”

While Tomasz Skrok was the son of Marcin Skrok and Anna Ciamaga, Władysław and Antoni Skrok were brothers, the sons of Paweł Skrok and Apolonia Serafin.

Tomasz Skrok

Tomasz Skrok was born 10 Nov 1885 in Pilaszów to Marcin Skrok and Anna Ciamaga. He was baptized in 1885 in Malice Kościelne, Lipnik, Opatów, Radom in Russian Poland.

Katarzyna Gajewska, the daughter of Józef Gajewski and Maria Sliwińska, was born in Pielaszów about 1888.

Tomasz Skrok worked as a machinist at the United States Rubber Reclaiming Company in Buffalo and was caught in the moving belting of some shafting on July 1, 1913. His right arm was broken and one of his feet crushed in the accident.

WANTS RELEASE SET ASIDE AND ASKS FOR $10,000
Alleging he was misled into signing two releases, for claims for damages covering injuries received while in the employ of the United States Rubber Reclaiming Co., Thomas Skrok brought action against that company for $10,000 damages. The case was tried before Justice Woodward and a Supreme Court Jury yesterday.
Skrok worked as a machinist for the company, and on July 1, 1913, was caught in the moving belting of some shafting, and when rescued his right arm was broken and one of his feet crushed. He alleges a claim agent for an Indemnity insurance company told him he would receive his pay while he was laid up and would be given a job when he recovered if he would sign a release. He was induced to sign a release for $560. He now seeks to have the release set aside, crediting the defendant with $560 on any judgment given him.

Buffalo Courier, Buffalo, New York, 20 February 1918, page 7

Claiming the insurance agent acted fraudulently in inducing the immigrant into signing two separate releases promising a future job and source of income, a settlement was reached in 1918 and Thomas Skrok was awarded $1,500.

GETS VERDICT OF $1,500
A verdict of $1,500 in favor of Thomas Skrok against the United States Rubber Reclaiming Co. was returned to Justice Woodward by a supreme court jury yesterday. Skrok was injured on July 1, 1913, when he was caught in a belt at the company’s plant.

Zygmunt Skrok

Unfortunately, I do not know what happened to Zygmunt. Perhaps he moved on or returned to Poland. It is possible he died or changed his name. I did not find any variation of the name Zygmunt Skrok in subsequent American records.

Andrzej Skrok

Walter Skrok‘s death notice in 1956 says that he was survived by a brother Andrew in Poland. Andrzej Skrok was born in 1896 in Pilaszów to Paweł Skrok and Apolonia Serafin. He was baptized in Malice Kościelne, Lipnik, Opatów, Radom in Russian Poland.

1896 birth Andrzej Skrok, Pilaszów, Paweł Skrok and Apolonia Serafin, baptism Malice Kościelne

Andrzej Skrok was still young when his brothers Władysław and Antoni immigrated to the United States. Although he may have later thought to join his brothers in America, the era of open immigration ended in 1914 with the outbreak of the Great War. From an average of a million immigrants annually in the years before the war (approximately 98% of applicants were admitted, and about three quarters of them were processed through Ellis Island), immigration went down to 110,618 people in 1918.

Skrok Relatives?

While we now know more about where these Skrok men were from, we do not yet know how closely we may be related!

There were other Skrok men (and probably women, as well) who came to Buffalo, New York, from the Radom province of Russian Poland. Brothers Filip Skrok (1867-1929) and Feliks Skrok (born in 1871) arrived in 1907, and Kazimierz Skrok (born in 1880, Gierczyce) arrived in 1910. Józef Skrok (son of Józef Skrok and Helena Mazur, born in 1894, Daromin, Sandomierz) served in the U.S. Army in WWI. Joseph Skrok died in Buffalo, Erie, New York, in 1951 and was buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery.
