Family of Łukasz Jankowski and Anastazja Małecka

Marta‘s parents Łukasz Jankowski and Anastazja Małecka were married 12 Jan 1892 at St. Stanislaus Bishop and Martyr Church in Buffalo, New York.

Łukasz Jankowski, son of Jakób Jankowski and Petronella Musiał

Łukasz Jankowski, the son of Jakób Jankowski and Petronella Musiał, was born in Kaźmierz, Posen. Once part of the German occupied Prussian area of Posen, today Kaźmierz is a village in Szamotuły County, Wielkopolska (Greater Poland). He immigrated with his parents and siblings on the ship Rugia from Hamburg, arriving in New York, New York on 16 Apr 1888.

Anastazja Małecka, daughter of the deceased Walenty Małecki and his wife (żona) Marcyanna

Anastazja Małecka, the daughter of the deceased (+) Walenty Małecki and his wife (żona) Marcyanna, was born in Słupca in the Russian occupied part of Poland. She reported arriving in the United States in 1890 or 1891.

There are places named Słupca in both Wielkopolska (Greater Poland) and the Masovian Voivodeship in Poland. The former Słupca was Prussian after the second partition of Poland, but the borders changed. Słupca was both a town and a county in Russian Poland when Anastazja was born.

The spelling of Anastazja‘s last name is not certain. The family names Małecki and Malecki are both found in Poland, although Małecki is the name used by more people.

For decades, Louis‘ sister Anna Maciejewska/Mack was the bookkeeper/office manager for Joseph Malecki of Malecki’s Meats in Buffalo, New York. Józef Malecki was born in 1893 in Opatówek, Kalisz, Wielkopolska, Russian Poland, and arrived in the United States in 1912.
