Obricki, Thomas (1856 - 23 NOV 1934)

Thomas Obricki, 78 years of age (stone says B. 1847), a retired farmer, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frank Sierociuk in the town of Thorp, Clark Co., Wis., on Friday, Nov. 23rd, 1934, of heart disease. Deceased was born in Poland and located in Thorp about thirty-five years ago. He has spent the latter part of is life with Mr. and Mrs. Frank Sierociuk and family.

He leaves to mourn, two sons, Stanley and Frank of Chicago, four daughters, , Mrs. Leonard Ferski, Muskegon, Mich., Mrs. John Ruda, Mrs. Frank Sierociuk, Thorp, and Mrs. Tony Markowski, Lublin, all of whom were present at the funeral.

Funeral services were held at St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church on Monday morning, Rev. F.A. Kulig officiating. The body was laid to rest in the parish cemetery, the following serving as pallbearers: Joseph Czech, Roman Czech, John Czech, Adam Dubicki, Paul Harycki, and John Zajonckowski.

Note added by Anna Obrycki - Thomas was born in 1856 not 1847, I believe this obituary is from the Wisconsin Historic Society and that their note concerning the stone is in error. All the sources I have compiled on my Great Grandfather indicates he was born in Poland about 1956 and if you do the math 1934 minus 78 years it comes out to 1956. Sincerely, Anna Obrycki

Note: Thomas relocated to Thorp, Wisconsin about 1893 or about 41 years prior to his death. His son Charles was born in New York on 26 Sep 1892 and his daughter Sophie in Wisconsin on 15 Sep 1894. The source information I have on Charles and Sophie is from the Social Security Death Index and the Cook County, Illinois Death Index. Both the 1905 Wisconsin State Census and the 1910 United States Federal Census support this evidence. Sincerly, Anna Obrycki
