I'm interested in the Conn. Czaplicki. My grandfather moved to that state with his 2nd wife and 6 children and then came back to Philadelphia. i've been on and off the genealogical trail for about 15 years and have gotten back to the late 1700s with some of my Czaplicki lines. Anyway here's brief bio on my grandfather. Tell me if there is a connection. Why would he move to Conn. if not to link up with family?
He was a bootmaker. He played the squeezebox.
Moved to Union City/Terryville Conn. near the Naugatuck River
(cir 1911-13.) Moved to (reported by son Stanley)
Philadelphia about 1917. Huntingdon and Thompson Sts. on Hancock St.
Reportedly had 2 brothers: one who stayed in Poland and one whose son
(Hilary) came to US. The other brother who was a weaver by trade
immigrated to US and had 3 sons; Dominic, unknown and the last one
who drowned in Atlantic City, NJ. Best guess emigration to US
Reported married before in Poland to another woman(name Ostrowska) they
had a daughter who had a son (lawyer) and a daughter (doctor) who lived
in Dzaldowo near Poznan. They also has a son who died. His first wife died
1898. He reportedly lived near woods near Russia. He told his sons that the
Czaplicki family was "szlachta" meaning of nobility. He said that his father Andrzej
lost his arm in a Russian uprising and as a reward the wealthy land owner would
allow he and his family to live on the land rent free. His work was to patrol the
forested land for poachers. When the land owner died, his wife did not fullfil
her husbands commitment.
He married Teofila February 16, 1898, when he was 31
and she was 20. It was an arranged marriage. They had 2 children (boys?)
in Poland who died early.
He came to US in 1901 and sent for his wife who came in 1902. They had
6 more children in the U.S.: John, Stanleslaw, Janninia, Zigmund, Cieslaw
On his declaration to naturalize on 20 Oct 1941 his address was 2812 E
Clearfield St. He was 74 years old born on 1-2-67 in Zaboklik Wielke Poland.
Light complexion with blue eyes and gray hair at 5' 11" 150 pounds. He is
married to Teofila on 19 June 1899 at Krzynologa Mala Poland. She is
listed as being born at Masiak Poland on 14 Dec 1879 now resides in
Phila. She came to NY on 4 May 1902. He lists 5 sons John (M) 3-4-03,
Stanley (M) 3-2-05, Bernard (M) 6-11-11, Chester (M) 11-4-14 and
Thomas (M) 3-20-19. His last residence was Przasnysz, Poland. He came
to the US from Hamburg, Gr. to NY on 17 May 1901 on the vessel SS.
Bismarck. He made a petition to naturalize before DOI 25325 on
4-14-1919 in the Phila, Pa Court of Quarter Sessions.
I found Makary's grave. It does not list his name. Makary and family here were poor , as I could tell. I know he was a bootmaker (leather craft), so he supported his family with that. I get the impression that when the sons were old enough they would work to support the family. My father said that he went to elementary school until the 6th grade (probably a legal requirement) and then went to work. I think that after the sons were working that Makary did not work much. My father did say that he was able to get him a job at where he (my father ) worked for a while.
Back to the grave- The tombstone does not list Makary. It lists his daughter Janina Skorski (nee Czaplicka). The gravesite belonged to my uncle Stanislaw who got the gravesite for his 2 children who died at a young age. It was a site for 4, obviously intending a place for him and his wife. When Janina died in child birth, either Makary could not afford to buy a gravesite or my uncle Stantley offered the place in the one that he owned.
