(Comments added by Rick Cukla, great-grandson of Mary K. Janicki)

I wanted to point out the errors in this 1954 obituary of my great-grandmother.  She was born May 8th (in Zolynia, Poland) and her last name at birth was spelled: MACH.  This is from her baptismal record.  She arrived in America Feb 03, 1902 on the Ship 'Barcelona', age 16.  This is from the manifest at Ellis Island Records.  Her daughters, Julia (Born: June 1, 1908) and Gertrude (Born: Dec 25, 1910) were from her second marriage to Alex Wisniewski.  Mary was widowed twice.  The information on Julia and Gertrude are from this Clark Co site, the 1925 Yaeger School Roster, Thorp.

 I hope this is useful if someone is doing family tree search and needs correct information.
