Hi, fellow Jendro researchers,
I have been researching Jendros in MN for a few years and have a lot of data for the ones who lived in Morrison Co. (Buckman area). Most of them are not related to me unless it's way back in Falkowitz and area, Upper Silesia. I have one rented film of baptisms for the church in Falkowitz from around the 1840-50 era. I can do lookups in it. I also have a list of Jendro deaths in the county from the civil records in Little Falls
Please leave your Jendro information at this site so that we can all exchange what we know.

Hi Nancy:

I'm looking for Jendro/Jondro/Johndrow that came to the U.S. between 1820 and 1850. My Jondro was in Missouri by 1852. I'm not sure if he was from France, or born in Canada.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I have something on a Martin Jendro. It's a naturalization record in three parts. The first part, dated June 1880, says that Nicholas Schilonka and Simon Schilonka swear they are well acquainted with Martin Yendro [that would be a German pronunciation of Jendro, sometimes used in records that depend on writing what one hears] and that he lived in the US for the past five years and for the last one year in MN and that he behaved himself during that period, etc.
The second part says "I Martin Yendro do swear, that I will support the Constitution..." etc. and renounce the King of Prussia. This is also dated June 1880 and signed by him "Martin Jendro."
The next part says "State of Minnesota, County of Stearns, District Court, Seventh Judicial District. And Now, to wit: At a Term of said Court, now being held at St. Cloud, in and for the County of Stearns, in said State, upon the foregoing oath and affidavits, and upon further proof having been made by the filing of a certificate, that the said...[name not filled in] did, before the Clerk of Dist. Court Stearns Co. 3 Sept 1874 the same being a Court of Record, having common law jurisdaiction, make the requisite declaration of his intention to become a Citizen of the United States, and to renounce all other allegiance, as required by the laws of the United States: I is ordered by the Court, That the said Martin Jendro be, and his hereby admitted to be, A Citizen of the United Staes. By the Court: E. B. Strong Clerk.
It looks like he may have been in MN for 7 years before 1880 if he followed the custom of declaration intention a year after arrival.
Does this sound like it woulld fit your great grandfather?
Do you have any dates for your Jendro ancestors, and any wives?
I may have something on Isidor, but I have to hunt for it yet.

Nancy,
Thanks so much for the quick reply. Martin Jendro and
his wife Suzanna Mroczik(or Marosek) Jendro came to
this country in 1874. Possible parents of Martin were Valentine and Mariana, although I have not been able to verify that. Also not verified is the point of origin of both. Supposedly from the Opole region of what is now Poland and was then Selesia of Prussia from the town of Falkowitz.
Father of Suzanna was supposedly Simon Mroczik(or Marosek). Thanks again for your assistance.
Dean

Nancy,
I have plenty on Isidor, my Grandfather. He was born May 25, 1884 in North Prarie, Mn to Amanda Amelia Swensen of
Pelican Rapids, Mn. They both died in 1934 after being hit by a train near Casselton N.D. where they lived. They had 11 children, one of them being my father Myron. I am currently in the process of locating all my cousins and building a good, complete tree of the Jendros from my point of view. Thanks again.
Dean

I believe this looks like your Martin and Susanna family.
Jendro, Martin Langola Twp., Benton Co.
Susan Aug 1849 [50] Germany
Philip S Aug 1878 [21] MN
Martin S May 1880 [20] MN
Frank S Mar 1882 [18] MN
Isador S May 1884 [16] MN
Peter S Apr 1886 [12] MN
John S Mar 1888 [12] MN
Mary D Aug 1890 [9] MN
1900 MN Soundex J536

I'm not sure how this will look after I post it. If it doesn't come out making sense I can send it directly to you.
The numbers in brackets are my calculations of approximate ages. Benton County is on one side of St. Cloud.
Are you familiar with the area?

My mother was a Jendro from the Buckman area. Her name and the names of the siblings that I know of are listed below:
Helen G Jendro, Susie Jendro, Reena Jendro, and Alphonse Jendro. There was one additional brother but I don't remember the name. I know virtually nothing about their parents.

Greetings Cousin! Your write-up is accurate about my parents and siblings except for one point; my Dad was adopted. Other than that, right on the money!
