Daughters Justina and Maryanna's marriages state they were born in Rowienica and Catharina's says Drzycim parish. Rowienica is a town that belongs to the Drzycim parish.

Per census, Maryanna had 14 children and I was told Anastazy was the youngest of 14. I found all births in Drzycim parish except for Francis and Anastazy. Still looking for Frances' birth & 3 unknowns. Anastazy was found in Topolno, Poland.

Sources: marriage, immigration, 1900 & 1910 census, death certificate and obituary.

Thomas Konieczka

circa 1800

Married Marianna Wolski 12 Jan 1829 in the Drzycim Parish.

(The Drzycim parish records are very hard to read and appear to have large mold spots in the middle of the registers. Some of the records are totally unreadable and some you can only make out parts.)

Children:
T???, born on what looks like the 16th of Mar in 1830. Name starts with a T and that's all I can really make out.
Maryanna, (see above).
Catherine, born 17 Aug 1843.
Magdalena, born 25 Jul 1849.

Sources: marriage and children's births.

There are other Konieczka from the Drcycim parish I find in Chicago that tie into tree. Connecting surnames are Smieszek and Witkowski.
